20 small and big changes at Messukeskus Helsinki

We asked our customers how they would renew Messukeskus Helsinki and our events. This feedback kick-started numerous improvements. Now it is time to thank our customers and show what we have accomplished – big and small changes!

1. More salads, smoothies, fruit and juices have been added to the selections of our restaurants and cafés. Our movable coffee trolleys and super cheap mineral water Dropp offer quick rejuvenation during hectic days. Dropp is the official mineral water of Messukeskus Helsinki, this request also came from our customers. All profit from the sales of Dropp is donated to the conservation of the Baltic Sea.
