Cable Factory


Tallberginkatu 1, 00180 Helsinki, Finland. 

The event is held in a unique setting of an old factory on the western seaside of Helsinki. A venue once producing cables is now gathering people together for meeting each other and making deals.  

I think this is one of the most dynamic conferences I have ever been to.
