Finland Convention Bureau acknowledges Finnish Congress Heroes

Finland Convention Bureau tells inspiring stories of their local congress heroes and shows how congresses can have a positive impact on society.

During the Finnish Congress Heroes campaign this autumn, Finland Convention Bureau acknowledges the efforts of three local academics who played a key role in bringing international conferences to Finland in 2022.

The campaign presents three inspiring stories about influential and talented experts in their field who secured high-profile conferences in their respective cities and universities. These heroes and their stories are highlighted on the FCB social media channels and website. The stories show the congress organisers’ tireless work to create high-level scientific programme and memorable experiences for their guests. The heroes also have an important role in contributing to the Finnish business events industry: congresses generate jobs and can act as a catalyst for sustainable growth.

Finland is a great country for business events also in the post-pandemic times. The country is known for its nature, room to roam and the world’s cleanest air. Finland is also serious about cleanliness, safety and social stability. One of the key drivers is active local cooperation.
