Terms and conditions for participants

Each exhibitor and other participant participating at the festival shall agree and follow the terms and conditions.
Please read carefully the terms and conditions that are agreed in the exhibitor registration. Terms and Conditions for 2021 festival (pdf).

Large stands and Branding areas

There are several different possibilities for large exhibition stands within the festival area. Large exhibition stands include floored tents that have been pre-built, or assigned places for a large tent of your own. The tent areas are 6×6, 6×9 or 6×12 meters in size. A large stand allows you to reach a wider audience, makes it easier to organize activities, and is more visible in the festival communications. An exhibitor with a large exhibition stand gets their name on the festival map and access to the Lämpiö-networking space. In addition, an exhibitor with a large stand gets their logo and the program of their exhibition stand displayed on the festival website.

Large tent stands can also be booked together with other exhibitors or with resale rights, which means you can sell a part of your space for example to your own member organisations. You could build a theme installation on a large tent spot with your member organisations or other stakeholders who work in the same field with you.

Branding areas are spaces with your own brand’s presence, that increase audience experience. A Branding area can be for example a sitting area, a stage, or some other area in the festival. It can also be implemented as a programme area, through advertising visibility at the festival, or through some other form of implementation that will be agreed upon jointly. Possible branding areas are, for example, Kid’s Corner, Street Art Area, the garden area, the Konttori back yard or Magito. The stakeholder implementing a branding area can promote their work or do face to face marketing similarly than those with their own expo stand. Outside of this, face to face marketing is prohibited in the festival area, except from partner level participants. The pricing for the branding area varies between 3000 and 6000 euros depending on the exact area, visibility and execution.

Theme stands

Themed tent sections are an excellent opportunity to reach audience alongside other organisations offering similar services.

Open Finland

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

Clean World

The Clean World theme tent is for companies that offer everyday solutions and innovations for a cleaner world.
