Helsinki Conference
Welcome to Helsinki!
Helsinki is one of the most fascinating capitals of the Nordic countries and a very popular congress city, combining a busy urban lifestyle with exotic Nordic nature. The City of Helsinki Wholesale Market operates in a central location in the city centre and provides versatile services for restaurants in Helsinki as well as the needs of the retail trade sector in Finland.
Part of the Wholesale Market’s activities is to develop food culture in the city, hence improving business opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises in the city. A special feature of the City of Helsinki Wholesale Market is the development of both retail and wholesale operations in the wholesale market area as well as in the city’s markets and market halls.
The wholesale market, market halls and the city’s markets are all under the administration of a City of Helsinki department. The city wishes a warm welcome to all members of the World Union of Wholesale Markets to learn new things, exchange ideas and have a good time in the Finnish capital. An interesting combination of historic Finland and modern Scandinavian design, the conference hotel welcomes its guests to enjoy the city.
The conference themes will focus on management and the development of operations. The development of a culinary culture and promotion of co-operation between retailers and their clients will also be given special attention. We will of course visit the wholesale and retail markets, with the best networking to take place in the Finnish sauna and during our meals of good food.
Welcome to the City of Good Food!
