Sailing from Tallinn to Helsinki

In addition to the beautiful cities of Tallinn and Helsinki, MyData 2017 takes place on the Gulf of Finland!

Included in the three-day conference pass is transport from Tallinn to Helsinki on Wednesday 30 August 2017.

After finishing the first day in Tallinn, shuttle buses will take MyData 2017 attendees from the conference venue straight to Tallinn harbour for boarding the ship. 

Once onboard, a light meal will be served. After having some food, settling in, and setting the agenda, the first unconferencing session of the conference will take place.

After arrival in Helsinki, informal evening programme will be organised.


Bring your luggage to the Tallinn venue

To ensure comfortable travel, we ask that all conference guests bring their luggage to the conference venue in Tallinn as they arrive. There will be a secured area for storage.

Do not leave your luggage at your hotel if you’re staying in one, as we’ll head straight from the venue to the harbour (starting from 16.15).


  • The programme will conclude at the Tallinn University conference centre at 16:00.

  • Shuttle buses between the conference venue and the port will run between 16:00 and 17:00. The drive to the port (Terminal A) takes about 15 minutes.

  • Boarding for the ferry ends at 17:30 and we will set sail at 18:00.

  • After dinner, the unconferencing session will take place 18:30-20:00.

  • The ferry arrives in Helsinki and we disembark at 20:30.

  • Directly after we arrive you are welcome to join us for informal socialising near the port in Katajanokka.

  • If you wish to drop off any luggage at your hotel first, you are also welcome to join us later.

  • The venue for the evening get-together will be announced closer to the date.

You will be given your ticket for the ferry trip along with your conference badge when you arrive at the conference venue.


A light meal, including a salad buffet and a drink, will be provided for conference guests. If you have dietary restrictions, please indicate them when purchasing your conference pass so that we can prepare something suitable for you.
