We are here to offer You the food for Your mind through an interesting programme, but also a memorable experience by introducing You the gems of Tallinn and Estonia. Therefore, we have chosen Kultuurikatel (The Creative Hub) as a venue for our event and Lennusadam (The Seaplane Harbour) as a venue for the gala-dinner. Let us give You a hint, why these places are worth to visit.
The Congress will take place at The Creative Hub, which is very close to the Old Town and City Center and is accessible by every means of transportation. The building was completed as Tallinn City Central Power Station in 1913. After a long hiatus, the stunning industrial complex was re-opened in 2015 as a renovated universal creative and event centre. The interior blends the old with new creatively.
The Creative Hub is also home to advertising, digital and other creative agencies, creative industry development centres and a restaurant. The Creative Hub was the venue of the main events held during the presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2017. It is one of the most unique creative and event spaces in Northern Europe. The industrial interior of the complex has inspired legendary film-maker Andrei Tarkovski, wowed German Chancellor Angela Merkel and enchanted hundreds of other prominent figures.

The gala-dinner will take place on the 1st of December at the The Seaplane Harbour. It is located in the Kalamaja neighbourhood, not far from the City Center. Kalamaja neighbourhood, often considered as a hipster area of Tallinn, this once closed off Soviet border zone is conveniently located between the scenic Tallinn coast and the Old Town and features some real architectural gems. The area is best known for its colourful wooden houses, bohemian charm and industrial heritage.
The venue has a wow-effect as it accommodates an authentic submarine Lembit from the 1930s and its interior, old blended with new, gives a very special touch to an enjoyable gathering.
The Seaplane Harbour, including the Seaplane Hangar, was built to become part of Peter the Great’s naval fortress 100 years ago on orders from the Russian Emperor Nicholas II. The architecture of the Hangar is remarkable, featuring the world’s first columnless thin-shell concrete domes of such volume. The building was used for seaplanes until the Second World War! Now it accommodates one of Europe’s grandest maritime museums and event venues. Its renovation started in 2010 and in 2012, the maritime museum was opened. Now it accommodates one of Europe’s grandest maritime museums and event venues.
