Lunches and Coffee Breaks
The Myllysali hall, located in the same building as the conference’s sessions, has been booked in connection with the Tenaille von Fersen hall, allowing for a comfortable setting for coffee breaks and lunches during the conference.
Lunch will be served individually packed in ecological materials, which will minimise waiting times and will allow attendees to choose where to enjoy it; be it the Myllysali hall, the Tenaille von Fersen hall, or outdoors while exploring the many interesting sights the island has to offer.
Moving between the two halls is easy through the connecting Korppukuivaamo corridor.
Coffee and lunch service will be provided by Suomenlinna Brewery, with the menu consisting of Finnish traditional cuisine with a green twist. Vegetarian and vegan options will be provided.
The Welcome reception will be held at the Banquet Hall of the Helsinki City Hall, which was first established as Hotel Seurahuone in 1833 and designed by German-born achitect Carl Ludvig Engel. The hotel closed in 1913 and the building was officially inaugurated as the Helsinki City Hall in 1932.
The Banquet Hall room was designed by Hampus Dahlström, and later expanded by Bruno Granholm. There have been many concerts, balls, receptions and other events under the crystal chandeliers over the years, often honouring invited guests. The Banquet Hall also has the distinction of having hosted several premiere performances of works from famous Finnish composers, such as The Wood Nymph by the master composer Jean Sibelius. The first cinema performance in Finland also took place in the Banquet Hall in 1896. These days, the Banquet Hall at the Helsinki City Hall remains one of the city’s top venues for social receptions.
The Welcome reception will include a light show by Belenos Group of Arts, a Flow arts -based fire and light show group from Helsinki, and pioneers of light shows in Finland.
