Safe meetings at Paasitorni

Dear Event Organizer / Guest,

Helsinki Congress Paasitorni has made a long-term commitment to responsible operations according to the ISO9001 quality standard, ISO14001 environmental standard and the current legislation, regulations and recommendations.

It’s our top priority to offer a pleasant and safe environment for our customers’ meetings and events. We have prepared the following guidelines to ensure safe events.

Please follow these measures with us so that we can continue to enable important encounters.

Coming to Paasitorni

  • Participate only if you are healthy.
  • Keep at least a 1-2 m safety distance from other participants at all times.
  • Please follow our employees’ instructions as you visit the cloakroom and registration desk.
  • Use the stairs if possible. Note that the lifts are reserved primarily for physically disabled customers.

During the event

  • We kindly ask you to take good care of your hand hygiene. Wash your hands often and carefully with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds. Soap and disposable hand towels are available in the restrooms.
  • Hand sanitizer is distributed in all meeting rooms, lobbies, restrooms and restaurants.
  • If you have to sneeze or cough, please use a disposable tissue or your sleeve instead of your hand. Throw the tissue away immediately and wash your hands.
  • We recommend using a face mask whenever close contact cannot be avoided.

We take care of all this

  • Our meeting and lobby spaces are spacious and adaptable. We have plenty of parallel facilities to reduce the number of people in one room. We consider instructions and our customers wishes regarding safety distances as we plan the facilities.
  • We have numerous meeting spaces with efficient air-conditioning. Primarily we offer these air-conditioned facilities for your event.
  • To avoid rushes, we try to stagger the start and end times of events as well as the serving times of lunch and coffee breaks.
  • To enjoy refreshments, we make sure everyone has a seat at a table or a corresponding surface, at a safe distance from each other.
  • Keeping the facilities clean is an important part of our daily operations. During the exceptional circumstances, we pay even more attention to the hygiene of the public areas, restrooms, door handles and table surfaces.
  • Our employees will come to work only when healthy. We use face masks when instructing customers with the technology or in some other long-lasting close contact.
  • We always disinfect microphones and other meeting equipment before events. We also encourage our customers to disinfect the microphones themselves with disposable disinfectant wipes.
