New Design at Hotel Hanasaari, Espoo

Hanasaari was created as a consistent whole in the 1970s. Designed by Professor Yrjö Sotamaa, its interior was inspired by nature, art and Finnish design. The goal was to create an innovative and modern, yet intimate and warm environment. The forms were simple, but the materials – such as wood, granite and handmade fabrics – were warm and natural, as were the colours: Sotamaa used various shades of red, brown and orange. This was unusual in modernistic buildings at the time. The building was designed by architect Veikko Malmio.

ESHRE conference to Messukeskus Helsinki

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

“On this occasion we were looking for a host city and suitable arena in Northern Europe. Messukeskus is able to provide our large conference with flexible and high-quality premises. 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.
