One more night! ArcticEvening Helsinki will take place tomorrow, starting at 6pm (Korjaamo, Töölönkatu 51). The event is sold out, but we wanted to let all the people coming know that we’re having a surprise guest speak in the event. We won’t disclose anything yet, but this is world class stuff! And this is on top of our fabulous speakers already, that we’ve managed to get for you – Ulla-Maaria Engeström of Thinglink and Jussi Laakkonen of Applifier.

The event is the official afterparty of the IBP Camp Helsinki, which is held earlier tomorrow. The event will feature speakers such as Andreas Ehn, ex-Spotify as well as Timo Soininen, the CEO of Sulake. For speakers and other information on ArcticEvening Helsinki, have a look at our earlier post.

We’ll see you tomorrow and don’t be late – doors open at 6pm and we’ll start the show very soon after that. Also, take a moment to get to know our sponsors who make these events available. We’re not charging you for the event so it’s your job and duty to take a minute to have a look at these sponsors (and thank them publicly for supporting us – if you see fit) 🙂

Those on Twitter, set your hashtags to #arctic for the event.
