Conference dinner at Turku Castle

The traditional ECCB Conference dinner takes place at the historic Turku Castle on Thursday, 19 September. Join us for a memorable evening in good company! You can sign up via the conference registration form.

Turku Castle has stood guard over the Aura River estuary since the 1280s. Its granite walls are steeped in the history of Finland, Sweden, and the other Nordic countries. The castle is located near Turku harbour and close to the city centre. In fact, in Turku, most of the main attractions, hotels and restaurants are within walking distance, making the city easy to explore.
