The EFQM Forum 2019 will take place in the Clarion Hotel Helsinki. The Clarion Hotel Helsinki is located in the new Jätkäsaari (Busholmen) urban investment district in the central West Harbour area. The hotel is a vibrant meeting place for both locals and hotel guests. How about some delicious drinks in the sky bar looking out over the city’s rooftops, a relaxed evening with chilled music in the Clarion Living Room or a delicious meal at our Kitchen & Table restaurant followed by a great night’s sleep? Helsinki’s city centre, shops and metro station are just a short walk away. Alternatively you can hop on a tram right next to the hotel.
