Book meeting facilities

Reservation, confirmation and cancellation
The reservation becomes binding when the customer has accepted the offer either orally or in writing. Maritime Centre Vellamo sends a written confirmation of the reservation to the customer. Reservations can be cancelled free of charge 14 days before the event. Events cancelled later than this will be charged in full. Reservations made two weeks before the event must be confirmed immediately.

Advance preparations
The customer must inform Maritime Centre Vellamo of the event programme, the number of participants and any audiovisual equipment needed. The customer is responsible for ensuring that their presentation materials are compatible with the equipment of Maritime Centre Vellamo. If necessary, the materials can be tested on the equipment before the event. We kindly ask the lecturers to arrive at the centre at least 15 minutes before the event start time. If the event starts outside of the Vellamo opening hours, the customer must agree on the arrival time with Maritime Centre Vellamo.

Payment methods
Facility hire fees can be paid by cash, debit card, the most common credit cards or invoice. If you want to pay by invoice, we ask you to give the invoicing address in advance in order to ensure smooth services on site. A service fee of €5 is added to each invoice.
