Frequently Asked Questions

Where the Event is held?

The event is held in Messukeskus Helsinki, Expo and Convention Centre.

Is the Nordic Business Forum Helsinki event going to be organized?

We are hopeful that the EU goals of the COVID-19 vaccination schedule are reached and we get to run the event on 29-30 September in Helsinki as planned.

The plan from the Finnish government for lifting the restrictions imposed due to COVID-19 (published April 21st) gives a good prospect for the event to be held normally in September. However, we are naturally closely following the situation, and are ready to make any adjustments if necessary.

What happens if the event is rescheduled or canceled?

If the event is rescheduled within 6 months of the original event dates, we will directly transfer your ticket to the new dates. This is also stated in our terms and conditions. In case the event is rescheduled for more than 6 months, your ticket is transferred to the new dates, but you can also get a full refund for your tickets if you wish. In case the event is canceled, you will get a full refund for your purchases.

What if I travel from outside Finland?

We are following the official guidelines from the local authorities. Based on our terms and conditions, we are not liable for any restrictions of travel set by the authorities.

If you are not able to travel due to COVID-19 restrictions, you will also be given the option to change your NBF2021 ticket to a ticket for NBF2022. You are also allowed to sell your NBF2021 to anyone willing/able to attend physically.

Do I need a COVID-19 vaccination certificate in order to attend the event?

The Finnish government has not yet decided on whether vaccination certificates or negative test results will be needed to attend indoor events for any period of time in the future. We are following the official guidelines closely and will inform our attendees of the latests decision of the authorities.

I have another question. Where can I get help?
