Espoo city politicians show support for the international meetings industry

Espoo has long traditions in hosting international conferences. By signing the agreement the City of Espoo wants to show that it is publicly committed to supporting the meetings and events industry internationally. In 1994, the City of Espoo and Aalto University (by then it was called Helsinki University of Technology) signed an agreement to have more cooperation between the city and the university and to eventually result in getting more scientific conferences to Espoo.

Yet another step towards building more effective partnership between the scientific community in Espoo and the city was the launch of EspooAmbassador -programme in 2009. In this Ambassador programme the City Mayor Jukka Mäkelä has an active role by hosting an annual event for scientific community where the ambassador award is also given.

Cooperation between the city and scientific community is the city receptions, where the city welcomes all conference participants to Espoo by delivering a welcome speech and some refreshments. In Espoo, we have been happy to have active city officials but also politicians to deliver the welcome words. This has been the Espoo way to develop the association between the City of Espoo, the whole scientific community and the politicians so the signing of this important Declaration of Support is yet another demonstration of the importance of international conferences to Espoo.
