Arrival by train
The Helsinki Expo & Convention Center is situated next to Helsinki Pasila railway station, so we highly recommend arriving by train. All national and international trains (apart from Allegro trains) stop at Pasila, and it is only a 300-meter walk to the main entrance of the Expo & Convention Center.
Arrival by plane
The Helsinki-Vantaa Airport is 13 km from the Expo & Convention Center. Look for the I and P trains, which connect the airport to the Pasila railway station. The journey takes around 30 minutes, and trains leave every 10 minutes during the day. You can also grab a taxi from the airport, which will take roughly 15 minutes and cost about 35€.
Arrival from the harbors
If you arrive in Helsinki via ferry, we recommend that you either take a taxi or a tram. Both are located in front of the arrival terminal.
Arrival by tram
You can reach the Expo & Convention Center easily with tram lines 7 and 9. All of these trams connect to the city center.
Arrival by bus
You can reach the seminar venue on buses 506 and 69, both of which stop at the Helsinki Expo & Convention Center.
To arrange for a taxi, call +358 (0)100 0600. Tell them that you are going to the Helsinki Expo & Convention Center and they will know where to go. The taxi stand at the Expo & Convention Center can be found at the main entrance (South Entrance).
The Expo & Convention Center Car Park is accessible to everyone and always open. It is located at the North Entrance of the venue. If you are using a GPS, enter the address: Ratapihantie 17. The parking fee is €12, which allows you to park once and stay for 24 hours. Parking fees can be paid at the automated ticket machines. We encourage you to pay for your parking upon arrival to avoid long lines at the machines at the end of the day.

Can you send my company an invoice without VAT?
No, VAT is always added to the ticket price even when the purchase is made by a company.
When a company sells another company an admission to short-term educational, scientific, cultural and sports events, fairs and exhibitions and other similar kinds of events, and services that are immediately linked to the admission, the service is sold in Finland, if the event is held in Finland. When the service is sold in Finland, it is also taxed in Finland. (Applied from AVL 69 d §). As the flagship Nordic Business Forum is held in Finland, VAT is always added to the ticket price.
Estonian companies, please find the instructions how to apply for a VAT refund here.
Companies from other EU countries, please contact your local tax office in case you wish to apply for a VAT refund.
