Mingle with the Finns


Monday, March 26



This month, we shall have another opportunity to meet with the members of the Finnish-Estonian Chamber of Commerce at the Tallinn TV tower, which will officially open for public in April after the years of renovation. The Tallinn TV tower is the highest building in Estonia having 314 m in height, and was officially opened for the Moscow Olympic Games in 1980. In 2007, the observation platform was closed due to the unsafe situation of the building. 

The event will start with the excursion at the TV tower at 17:00 and continue at the sky-restaurant on the 22nd floor where the chef de cuisine, Mr Priit Toomits will be introducing the concept of the restaurant along with some delicacies.


Please register for the event latest on Friday, March 23. Click here for registration! We also kindly ask you to announce about your absence at least one day prior to the event in case you have registered. The event is free of charge for all Business Plus members of the DECC, 15€ for DECC and FECC members, 20 € for all other registered participants. More information from Merli Lindberg at info@decc.ee and www.decc.ee
