Seaside Dinner with a Dash of Magic
Uunisaari – Ugnsholmen

After the first conference day we will unplug from the buzz of the campus and enjoy a relaxed conference dinner at the charming island Uunisaari – Ugnsholmen. A private boat will take us for a one hour cruise along seaside Espoo & Helsinki towards Uunisaari. Our conference assistants will guide you from the conference venue to the starting point of the pier.
