Finnish people are insanely smart and talented. So are New Yorkers.
You are invited to see the latest from Finland in the fields of design, art and art-technology in a multi-content exhibition and party. We are bringing a little bit of Finland to Manhattan for an evening, and will give you a chance to meet the people behind the products. We offer you a taste of Finland by serving Finlandia Vodka cocktails and the world famous super food, Finnish rye bread.
