Health and safety are top priorities

Finland is opening for travel and events


The Finnish Government recommends that as of 1 August 2020, if the development of the epidemic continues in the current direction without any significant setbacks, events with more than 500 persons may be organised in both indoor and outdoor spaces. Event organisers must ensure the safety of attendees by following the guidelines from the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) concerning safe distances, hygiene practices and limiting the number of visitors, if necessary by dividing activities into smaller sections.

“The safety of our clients and our personnel is of utmost importance to us at the Finland Convention Bureau. Business events suppliers in Finland monitor and follow the advice of authorities regarding the corona virus situation and work together around health safety to ensure the safety of the facilities and services.”, commented the Finland Convention Bureau.

To ensure the safety at events physical distancing is enabled with different procedures as space regulations take place in conference facilities and restaurants. There are also physical transparent partitions on registration and customer counters. Attendee flows will be monitored during events and the catering will be managed in a way it allows physical distancing.
