Hotel Reservation

Please note that demand for hotel rooms in Helsinki is always very high. In order to avoid disappointment, early bookings are recommended. Telephone reservations will not be accepted.

Hotel accommodation is subject to availability and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. All rates include breakfast, VAT and service.

All reservations must be made using the official booking form and submitted with full credit card details, without which the booking cannot be processed.

Should the selected hotels be sold out, the Congress Secretariat Accommodation Department reserves the right to book a hotel in a similar category and price range. Should you plan to arrive at your hotel after 18.00, please inform the Congress Secretariat Accommodation Department,


Upon receipt of the hotel booking the Congress Secretariat Accommodation Department will charge a deposit of 35 EUR.
