Helsinki welcomes thousands of KOLs

Despite its low temperatures, this city is well known for being friendly and featuring its splendid modern architecture and overflowing with art on every corner.

Helsinki is easy to navigate, with most landmarks being very close together within walking distance. The city has a vast network of transportation options, from trams to buses, including bike passes. Renting bicycles is also available across the city.

You can walk through the market, buy local food, rest in a cafe, and continue your journey with ease.

These locations are great choices if you want to explore the culinary offerings of Helsinki.

Finland is at the vanguard of healthcare in Europe

One of the most relevant aspects of Finland’s significant development, even above the United Kingdom or China, is its great dedication, with a long history, to research related to the incorporation of detailed data in the healthcare sector. An aspect that has powerfully caught the attention of the key opinion leader (KOL).

Since 2002, Finland has invested heavily in its efforts to digitalize healthcare records and incorporate technology into the public health system. Finland studies on cancer patients have been recorded and stored since the 1950s, and accurate records of all newborns have been kept since the late 1960s.

With the tremendous technological advance incorporating population data into the public health system and attracting many experts, Finland achieved top quality standards in medical practices and life expectations. This is one of the most critical advantages of meeting all the specialists precisely in Helsinki for the European Health Conference & Exhibition in 2022.
