The scientific congress will bring more than 8,000 participants from over a hundred countries to Messukeskus.

An important factor behind our choice is Helsinki’s reputation as a valued conference city. Helsinki is universally accessible and has enough hotel rooms for our large number of guests,” says Managing Director Bruno Van den Eede, of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) that is responsible for organising the conference.
