While attending the conference and throughout their stay in Helsinki, Tom and Thomas had the opportunity to explore and enjoy much of Finland’s culture and outdoors in Helsinki and Tampere.
Helsinki is Finland’s capital city and the center of its culture, media and business. The archipelago of Helsinki consists of 330 islands and is officially 2/3 Baltic Sea and 1/3 land mass. The city is famous for design and world-renowned modern design heritage can be seen everywhere in the city. The city is covered in green areas with lots of possibilities to enjoy outdoor activities and relaxation. The large Central Park and its forest spread just beyond the city center which is compact and easily explored on foot.
Helsinki has a thriving blasting industry which we will be taking full advantage of during the conference programme.
It was a great event and we thank Kalliotekniikka for being such wonderful hosts.
