HOW TO
HACK SLUSH 2019?

Slush is far more than just a two-day event. In fact, it is a constellation of hundreds of events happening all around metropolitan Helsinki. Here's some tips for planning your visit.

PLAN YOUR
SLUSH WEEK.

The main event is organized on Nov 21–22, in Messukeskus, Helsinki Expo and Convention Center (Messuaukio 1, Helsinki). On both event days, doors will open at 8 am and the stage program will go on from 10 am to 6 pm.

Originally a two-day event, Slush has now become an entire week of exhilarating program around Helsinki. See our top picks below.

SIDE EVENTS

Helsinki comes alive when over 25,000 Slush attendees arrive in the city. At the center of all are the hundreds of side events organized during the Slush week.

In addition to the events organized by Slush – our Kickoff Events and Official Slush Side Events with our partners – there is a wealth of industry and theme-specific gatherings all adding up to the Slush experience.

Anyone is welcome to throw their own side event during Slush week. It could be a client breakfast, workshop, afterworks or something completely different – the choice is yours. Register your event below and we’ll list it on the Slush website.
