YOU CANNOT CONNECT ANY HOUSEHOLD DEVICES OR NETWORK DEVICES (modems, switches, routers, etc) TO YOUR TABLE SLOT.

ATTENTION! If you bring game console and computer with multiple monitors to your table slot make sure you don't overuse the power consumption limits that are assigned to your table slot.

Arrival

South Entrance is open during the whole event, day and night.

Arriving by Car

For many the easiest way to arrive to the venue is by car. The Event place is located about 6km from the downtown of Tampere. The address is Ilmailunkatu 20, 33901 Tampere. Easiest way to find your way to the event location is to use your own navigator. In Tampere region you should follow "Messukeskus"-signs that lead you to the event place.

Torstaina pohjoinen sisäänkäynti on auki klo 19 asti. Liikenteenohjaus ohjaa teidät vähiten ruuhkaiselle sisäänkäynnille siihen asti. Tämän jälkeen sisäänkäynti tapahtuu pelkästään eteläisen sisäänkäynnin kautta.

Arriving to the event from the main roads:
Helsingin suunnasta.
Jyväskylän suunnasta.

Parking

There is free parking at the parking lots

Eteläisen sisäänkäynnin parkkiin pääsee ajamaan messukeskuksen pääparkin kautta. Kuten kuvassa näkyy vihreällä nuolella. Bussipysäkin ja taxitolpan puolelta ajaminen eteläiseen sisäänkäynnin eteen on kielletty, kuten kuvassa näkyy punaisella nuolella.

The parking lots are marked at the picture above. Parking right in front of the door is ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN!

Public Transportation

Jos olet tulossa kauempaa, niin sinun on helpointa matkustaa ensin Tampereen juna-asemalle tai linja-autoasemalle. Bussilinjalla 14 pääsee suoraan tapahtumapaikan pääovien eteen. Juna-asemalta lähin pysäkki on tien toisella puolella vastapäätä juna-asemaa. Linja-autoasemalta lähin pysäkki on linja-autoaseman edessä. Jos linja-autolla kulkeminen on mielestäsi hankalaa, on tietenkin mahdollista käyttää myös taxia. Kyyti bussi- ja juna-asemalta maksaa noin 13-18 euroa.

Event Location

The Venue is at Tampereen messu- ja urheilukeskus(TESC) E-hall also know as "Tähtiareena". The Venue offers all the basic needs: showers, sleeping areas and restaurants for Lantrek customers.

Showers

The showers are located in A-halls hallway as shown in the map below. The showers are clearly marked for women and men and the showers are available during the whole event.

Sleeping

Yleinen käsitys on, että koko tapahtuma pyritään valvomaan "samoilla silmillä".  Suosittelemme hyödyntämään tapahtuman nukkuma-aluetta ja tuomaan mukanasi oman patjan, tyynyn sekä makuupussin. Huom! Nukkuminen on turvallisuussyistä sallittua vain sille varatulla alueella. Nukkuma-alue sijaitsee A-hallissa ja on valvottu ja kaikille yhteinen. Tapahtuman nukkuma-alueella on kylmä betonilattia, joten suosittelemme huomioimaan tämän nukkumavarusteiden osalta. Kannattaa pakata vaikka villasukat ja toinen makuualusta ym. mukaan jos se vain on mahdollista. Korvatulpat ovat myös hyvä varuste herkkäunisille.

Eating

If you are hungry the restaurant called Finnresta Barcelona is at the second floor of E-hall. They have warm buffet with salad and bread table. Additionally there is coffee and tea.

If needed! Vegan and special diet are possible if asked at the kitchen.
