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.  

Getting there


Ruoholahti is the station you need to get out. Literally. It is the last stop towards west from the city centre and all the passengers must get out of the train. It’s about 5 min walk to the venue. If you have a meeting starting, you can make it if you run in 2 minutes.


Public transport is the way to go in Finland. One way of getting here here is by bus. Almost any bus from Kamppi towards west will bring you close, but the best ones are 65A, 111T, 21V, 102T the stop being Salmisaari


You can also enjoy a tram. Number 8 takes you close to the venue. Your stop is Länsisatamankatu and the venue is 100m away.


Get a cab by calling 0100-0700 in Helsinki, 0100-7300 in Vantaa (airport).


Taking a boat to Finland? We are negotiating a Special Tallink offer for Arctic15 visitors and will post it here once confirmed.
