EDDI19 conference dinner takes place on Tuesday 3 December at the Finlayson Palace.
A Scottish industrialist James Finlayson founded a cotton mill in Tampere in 1820. He soon sold his business to the Nottbeck family who further expanded the activities. Finlayson became a town within a town, offering housing, school, church, and healthcare for the employers. The ruler needed his own palace. The Finlayson Palace was built in 1899 in the Neo-Renaissance style, and it replaced the former two-storey wooden building. Today the renovated palace serves a restaurant. Finlayson still is one of the most popular textile manufacturers in Finland.
Please note that the late rate does not include the dinner.
