As Helsinki is one of the world’s most Northern capitals, the weather conditions during the winter can be quite cold. The temperature can get freezing especially during the night, and the average temperature in November is normally one degree celsius (34 Fahrenheit). Please take the weather conditions into account when planning your trip and stay in Helsinki.
The dresscode for Slush is casual. The weather might be chilly, so warm winter gear is recommended.

Slush uses Stripe Payments Europe Ltd for payment processing, which accepts payments from credit cards with global payment options (Visa, MasterCard & American Express). If you wish to pay through invoice, please contact email@example.com.
Unfortunately, we cannot deduct value added tax. The tax legislation in Finland states that even though we send the invoice abroad within EU, the buyer will “consume” the service in Finland (=attend Slush in Helsinki). So that is why we have to add the tax to the invoice.

Badge Claim point is located around downtown Helsinki and will open approximately a week before the event. You can also collect your Slush Music Badges(s) from the venue entrance.
