We're sad that we couldn't have you in 2020, but with all this extra planning-time we hope to prepare an even better Convention in 2021!
BVO Finland is happy to welcome our international Viking family to Helsinki for 68th Convention in August 2021. We've booked some wonderful venues and planned some amazing events for the Convention Weekend. We've also anticipated that many of you will be arriving earlier than Friday so the official program starts with a bonus event on Thursday the 12th.
This is why we're also preparing to host multiple additional activities leading up to, and following the official weekend program.
Registering for Convention
Please register for the main events before Jan 1st and you'll receive a special price for the entire weekend package or on individual events. You'll need to complete the full payment with a credit card when registering yourself and any potential guests. The price of attendance for all main events will jump after April 15th.
The discounted price for the Full Convention-package will be €280 when you register and pay by Jan 1st. This includes the Thursday Registration Event, Business Meeting, Informal Dinner, Formal Dinner, and Brunch.
Additional activities leading up to, during, and after the main weekend program will be organized at an additional cost. You'll find basic information about these events lower down on this page, but we'll notify you once we have more details about cost and how to sign up.
Where to stay
Helsinki has a wide selection of Hotels and Hostels in many categories. In addition, you'll find a great selection of vacation rentals on AirBnB.
Please see our preferred Hotel options below, most of which have a special promotional discount for Convention attendees. Click on the images below and use the promocodes to book a place to stay. We'll be offering to host Vikings that are still Students or under the age of 25 to alleviate the cost of attending. Apply for hosting here.
Additional events and activities
Tuesday to Thursday
If you are arriving early we have multiple events for you to attend starting as early as Tuesday. More information and prices will become available in due time. All additional events and activities require a separate fee to participate.
During Saturday we will be organizing different activities based on interest. Some activities will be free of charge while others require a fee to participate. Participation is limited so make sure to book your spots as soon as we open the Saturday Activity registration page.
Sunday to Monday
In addition to the Convention Brunch on Sunday, we will organise a casual dinner at a restaurant in Downtown Helsinki on Sunday. If you're still around on Monday morning feel free to fight your Monday Scaries away over breakfast. Please express interest once we open sign-ups.
