Where Medieval Meets Modern!

Are you constantly seeking for a new, wild-card destination for your events that offers incredible experience and excellent value for money?

Estonia is a true rising star among international meetings and events destinations. No wonder though – Estonia is a fresh, short-haul destination that comes packed with positive surprises. It’s a country loved for its relaxed atmosphere, where major attractions and venues are typically within walking distance, where high-quality, business-class hotels are easily affordable, and where restaurant food is inventive, seasonal and simply amazing. The capital city, Tallinn, never fails to wow visitors with its enchanting, UNESCO-listed, medieval Old Town, but also offers areas of stunning modern architecture and creative, youthful vibes. Estonians, known for their deep appreciation of nature, prioritize sustainability, offering excellent options for eco-conscious meetings and activities. Simultaneously, Estonia is celebrated internationally as one of the most digitally advanced societies globally.

We all know that the best—and quite frankly the only way—to really know if a destination is right for your next meeting, conference or corporate retreat is to experience it firsthand.

Therefore, If you’re considering Estonia as the potential host for any of your business events, Visit Estonia and Estonian Convention Bureau would like to invite you to the “Post-tour to Tallinn”, scheduled from November 3rd to November 5th, 2024.

During this trip, you will be exploring Tallinn as a meeting and events destination.
