On May 16th and 17th the conference will be held at Kultuurikatel, the swankiest conference venue in Tallinn. The building of the Creative Hub was completed as Tallinn City Central Power Station in 1913. After a long hiatus, the stunning industrial complex was re-opened in 2015 as a renovated universal creative and event centre. This centre, which creatively blends the old with the new, is the ideal place to realise high-flying ideas that help people develop and grow, touching their hearts and minds.
