The Estonian Convention Bureau has announced a new, high-powered partner in the world of academia, with Tallinn University of Technology, also known as TalTech, signing up as a member.
TalTech is the country’s only dedicated technical university and its compact campus in a scenic area of the capital, Tallinn, has made it a popular choice for conferences, particularly those with a technical, science or IT focus.
In addition to a 700-seat assembly hall and classical auditoriums, the university offers some unusual lab spaces and studios.
A bonus activity on offer for tech-minded visitors is a tour of Mektory, TalTech’s innovation and business centre. Add-on workshops on offer cover topics like LED-making, 3D printing and space technology.
TalTech is the second academic institution to join ECB, whose ranks also include the Tallinn University Conference Centre.
ECB Managing Director Kadri Karu said she hopes that the partnership with TalTech will put Estonia in an even better position to attract international conferences to Estonia.
“Thanks to the collaborative nature of R&D, TalTech has already made a name for itself around Europe and established strong, cross-border ties. We’re hoping those connections can help broadcast the message that this is a great place for large-scale meetups,” she said.
