The end of August and 1st week of September is a turning point for Helsinki, as the sea temperature reach the highest level but daily temperature begins to descend as the northern city heads into autumn weather. The Finnish capital experiences an average daily temperature of 15°C during August / 1st week September, with the average high being a beautiful 19°C. In the evening the average low is dipping down to just 11°C with occasionally showers. The mild summers in Helsinki result in many visitors coming to escape the heat in the south.


Information about fees and how to register will be published in the 2nd announcement.


A targeted group of medical, biotechnical and pharmaceutical companies will be invited to sponsor
an integrated symposium and promote their products and services at the exhibition.
