HELSINKI: What makes a world-class destination?

On Wednesday 8 June, our Chief Executive, Ros Morgan interviewed Deputy Mayor of Helsinki, Anni Sinnemäki as part of our ‘What makes a world-class destination?’ webinar series. 

Anni shared her vision for the Helsinki as well as discussing the key lessons learnt from the pandemic.  

Our top five takeaways are: 

  1. Cultural investment is fundamental to the revitalisation of city centres  
  2. A long-term strategy should be developed to ensure residents and businesses are kept informed of cultural activations  
  3. A city’s long-term sustainable goals increase its international appeal
  4. Social sustainability can be achieved by adopting a three-pronged approach 
  5. The younger generation should be at the forefront of new investment opportunities  

To end the interview, Anni revealed her definition of a world-class destination: a mix of different people and their energy.
