Guide for meeting organisers    

A meeting is successful when everything seems to run by itself. We have compiled a brief guide on how to arrange a successful event day at Science Park. 

Before the event  

Contact us and tell us what kind of event you’re organising. Our meeting sales department will help you choose the best facility for your event from our diverse selection of spaces. The options range from seminar and workshop spaces to sauna facilities. 

The meeting facility is an important element in terms of the atmosphere and success of the event. The nature and date of the meeting as well as the number of participants largely determines the type of space that works best in each situation. If necessary, we can handle whatever furniture arrangements are required for the event.  

What kind of technology does your event require?  

It’s also a good idea to consider what kind of equipment and technical devices you need. Please inform us about any special needs well in advance of the event. Science Park also has a meeting room with video conference equipment. It’s also worth considering whether you could organise the meeting as a hybrid event, which means not all the participants would have to be physically present. This saves money and nature – and that is always important to us. You can also ask about IT support in advance as an additional service for the events. 


More information about the facilities and functions   

The Science Park website provides a comprehensive presentation of our meeting facilities. We’re happy to give you a tour of the venue in advance. That way you can feel confident about knowing where to find everything on the day of the event. 

Our meeting facilities are stocked with a variety of basic supplies, including everything needed to take notes. 

Our facilities have modern meeting technology, AV devices and wireless network connections. If necessary, we can provide instructions concerning use of the meeting technology in advance, so that everything runs smoothly at the actual event. In any case, it’s always a good idea to test the technology on the day of the event before the participants arrive  

Remember the refreshments   

Good food or coffee served with a snack are always popular at meetings and other events. A restaurant operating in Science Park is a convenient partner for organising catering at meetings. You can also order the refreshments from somewhere else – or make them yourself. . 

Guidance and parking for meeting guests   

Making sure all the guests to find their way to the location is an important factor when organising a successful event. 

Take advantage of Science Park’s guidance page by linking it directly to the event invitation or share our meeting facility map with participants. 

Parking for your event is easy to arrange in the parking garage located right next to Science Park. The parking garage at Hallitie 2 is open every day from 7 am until 10 pm. 

During the event    

Get the most out of your event. Now it’s time to enjoy yourself and spend time with your guests. We’ll make sure that the participants find their way to the right place and your event runs smoothly Remember that you can come to us with all your questions: we’re always available – and the customer always comes first for us. . 


After the event     

You don’t have to worry about the cleaning arrangements. Our cleaning service will put everything back in place after your event. Just remember to take your own belongings with you – but don’t worry if you forget something. We’ll keep any forgotten items in a safe place until you come to pick them up. 

Comments and feedback on the arrangements and services at the event are always welcome – this is important to us! 

We hope to see you again soon!
