We, on behalf of the Welding Society of Finland and the city of Helsinki, “The Pearl of the Baltic Sea” are pleased to invite all delegates, experts and especially accompanying persons to join us during the week of 28 June to 3 July 2015. We trust that everyone will find the maritime city of Helsinki safe and easy to access and its people friendly and hospitable.

For those who have never visited Helsinki before, the event offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the amazing light summer nights of the Nordic countries. In addition to the technical meetings we have prepared for you a number of social events, sightseeing tours and technical visits. One of the main venues, Finlandia Hall, is one of the most iconic buildings designed by the world renowned Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto. One of the sightseeing tours covers the home museum of the famous Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.

Moreover, another tour covers the maritime fortress and UNESCO Word Heritage Site Suomenlinna in the archipelago of Helsinki. The technical visits will focus on the most advanced welding intensive metal industries and research units in Finland. The pre and the post tours to Tallinn and St. Petersburg offer you the possibility to enjoy the Nordic and Eastern culture even longer.
