Number of seats - up to 100,
Date - to be announced,
Place - Helsinki,
Agenda - networking and fun

Focus of the event

The main theme of the event is “a New Normal after the covid-19 impact”. All sides of the health industry have experienced changes, it is now time to reshape a New Normal.

The list of the topics will be constantly updating, with the emphasis on:

  • new policies and regulations,
  • new ways of work in restricted conditions,
  • need of digitalisation in Health,
  • psychological support for everyone affected by the crisis
  • preventive measures,
  • ways to prepare ourselves for any future pandemics,



Virtual Delivery

Working remotely became the New normal now, and we go along with it, letting people reach their goals in a comfortable atmosphere. 

The Online Tool allows us to imitate all elements of a regular in-person event. You will be able to chat with roughly 1000 attendees of the event, have audio/video meetings and many more.

The program will include:

  • 3 high-end keynotes,
  • 30 round-tables with the best experts in the field,
  • direct matchmaking  


Unconference is a type of event where agenda is not strictly regulated by organizers, but is rather co-created by attendees. It is less formal than a regular conference, and the main focus lays on making new and deeper connections in a relaxed atmosphere.

All our guests (including you!) will have something to bring to the table of the New Normal after covid-19 discussion, and the content part will be created during the mutual exchange of information at our professionally guided round-tables.



Let's reform the Health together!
