International media

Business Finland’s media tours and contacts for the international media.

We promote Finnish knowhow

Business Finlands' international media services work as an interface between the media and Finnish industry and business. We invite journalists from all over the world to experience pioneering Finnish innovations and hear the latest news from our key industries.

Due to the current situation of COVID-19, we have temporarily discontinued our physical international media tours. We will however organize a LIVE STREAM for international journalists by the theme Remote digital health care and technology from Finland on Tuesday September 1st 2020. See more below and register! See you there!

Time and time again, Finland scores at or near the top of international rankings of competitiveness; of environment for business growth; and of quality of life. Strong tech expertise, a high education level, a large contingent of creatives, and a burgeoning startup scene contribute to an attitude of innovation. Finland is at the forefront of digitalization, health solutions and smart and clean technologies.

Business Finland offers international media the opportunity to come to Finland and experience the Finnish knowhow first-hand as a part of our media tours. During our media tours, you get to hear how Finland is tackling the global issues of today and meet some of the most interesting players in the field.

Every tour has its own theme focusing on burning topics such as circular economy and sustainability or digital solutions for healthcare. The themes are focused on the key industries of Finland today:

  • ICT & Digitalization
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Food & Beverage
  • Bio & Circular Economy
  • Energy
  • Fashion & Lifestyle
  • Cleantech
  • Maritime & Offshore
  • Business events

We have a long tradition of organizing media tours that goes back to 1960, when the independent media service unit Finnfacts was launched. Since 2016 Finnfacts has been a part of Business Finland, continuing the work of helping introduce international journalists to Finnish expertise and knowhow.
