A study by Finland Convention Bureau show huge revenues generated from international congresses organised in Finland. During 2010 ga total of 61,371 participants spent time in Finland. On average, a congress visitor stayed for 4.9 days, and spent EUR 207 per day (let us hope it was not all on alcohol).
In all, the tourism resulting from international congresses reached EUR 72 million. The sum consists of the combined consumption of congress organisers and participants. Congresses are a sweet deal for Finland.
