Any parking space can be used free of charge with a valid disabled parking permit.

When exiting the parking hall, show the disabled parking permit to the camera at the gate.
Accessible parking is also available at the Conference Center parking area, but since the route to the Southern Entrance from the parking area has a rather steep uphill, we recommend using accessible parking at the parking hall instead.
All entrances and passages at the venue are wheelchair accessible. Elevators, which are marked on the maps of the convention area, can be used to move between halls. Most of the restaurants and cafes of the venue are also wheelchair accessible. Accessible toilets are also marked to the map.
Navigating through construction sites around Pasila station
Construction work for the new shopping centre Tripla at Central Pasila is well underway and the renovation work is being done both inside and outside of the Pasila railway station. This has affected some of the routes in and around the station.
Although there are good arrangements and signs present at the Pasila station, we recommend using the pedestrian tunnels (north of the station) to reach Messukeskus. By using the tunnels you can avoid the construction site and get to the venue faster. You can see the recommended route from Pasila station to Messukeskus here.
Up-to-date information on traffic arrangements and pedestrian routes can be found at the HRT Pasila website. Services and stores available at the Pasila railway station during the construction process can be found on the Pasila railway station website.
