The accessibility of our office
Please refrain from wearing perfume
We ask our event participants, our guests and our personnel to arrive to our office and our events fragrance free. Please do not use perfume, aftershave and other fragrances. We use fragrance-free hand soaps and cleaning products in our office.
There are about half a million of people who are sensitive to scents in Finland, and for them strong scents of people next to them can cause headaches, nausea or other symptoms. Reducing fragrances is a small act you can do to make others feel better. Thank you for your consideration!

However, the doors facing the inner court are not automated and are difficult to open. If you need help opening the doors, ask for help from the info point of the Cable Factory at the Glass Courtyard (open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.). You can also call the info, tel. 0947638300.
