Let us know about your congress

Thank you for informing us about your congress! Oulu Convention Bureau keeps statistics and maintains communication on international meetings and conferences taking place in Oulu. If an event meets the criteria of an international conference, we will communicate them further to the Finland Convention Bureau for statistics. If you wish, you may register your conference with us just for statistical purposes.

Criteria for international congresses:

  • A minimum of ten participants
  • Participants from at least two countries
  • A minimum of 20% of participants from abroad
  • Duration of at least one day / 4 hours
  • Conference must have a designated website

Conferences from the previous year must be reported to us by 31 January in order to be considered in the annual conference statistics. The annual statistics are published every year in March or April. The conference statistics yield useful information for developing Oulu as a conference city. Informing OCB about your congress will get you visibility through our channels. Remember to add your event in the Oulu Events calendar.
