The large exhibitor stands are sold in the order they are reserved and only a limited number of stands are available: act quick and reserve yours now! Reservation has started on 1 November and are confirmed within two weeks.
Large exhibitor stands (36–60 m²) are located in large floored Multiflex tents on the Railway Square and in Kaisaniemi Park. Large stands located in the Market of Possibilities tent do not include a floor. Those stands are ideal for e.g. umbrella organisations or groups of organisations representing a shared theme. Several large spaces for exhibitors’ own tents are available in Kaisaniemi Park.
Three distinct tent sections at the Railway Square offer an excellent opportunity to reach a focused audience alongside other organisations offering similar services.
Open Finland is aimed especially at organisations that wish to speak to new Finns about Finland as well as services and opportunities associated with Finnish society. The tent's exhibitors represent services related to state authorities, media, CSOs, education, hobbies and entrepreneurship.
Climate Village on Railway Square hosts organisations looking to showcase their concrete activities on tackling climate change. It's aimed at all parties interested in promoting and spreading awareness of climate change and climate justice in Finland and around the globe.
World Travellers is a theme section mainly focussed on sustainable travel located on Railway Square. Travel organisations and tourism professionals are invited to promote their work and services.
Standard stands include the Market of Possibilities, tent, food and bazaar stands. Due to updating, the registration will start 4 December and ends 17 February. Confirmations for standard stands will be sent to applicants by 20th of March.
Because of high demand for standard stands, all requests may not unfortunately be satisfied. The standard stands include the smaller stands in the Market of Possibilities tent, as well as the bazaar, food and tent stands (max 4 x 4 meters) in Kaisaniemi park. Registration will begin on 3 December and confirmations for standard stands will be sent to applicants in March.
