The main event is organized on Dec 4–5 in Messukeskus, Helsinki Expo and Convention Center.
On both event days, doors will open at 8 am and the stage program will go on from 10 am to 6 pm.
And the fun doesn’t stop when the venue doors close: Helsinki is thriving with places to see and things to do – the cool and hip capital is bubbling with cozy restaurants, buzzing nightlife, design saunas and so much more.
Book your flights and accommodation: Helsinki is a surprisingly small city to be a national capital. Because of that, the amount of hotels and hostels is limited and prices will be high as we approach Slush week.
The venue, Helsinki Expo and Convention Center (Address: Messuaukio 1, 00520 Helsinki), is located just a few kilometers from Helsinki city center – you’ll be able to arrive the venue within 15 minutes from all around the city.

Everyone is welcome to throw their own side event during Slush week. In addition, there are Official Slush Side Events taking place. Official Slush Side Events are one-day industry-specific gatherings and are organized by Slush partners around Helsinki.
