More than 400 exhibits to FINLANDIA 2017
(1st September, 2016)
The organizing committee has selected the exhibits to be accepted for FINLANDIA 2017. According to the individual regulations (IREX) of the exhibition, the list of exhibits will be disclosed no sooner than September 30th, 2017. At that time the National Commissioners will be informed about the accepted exhibits of his/her country.
Approximately 400 exhibits plus 58 literature exhibits were selected from some 600 applicants. Given the space limitations, previous exhibition results and other criteria, the exhibition committee was unfortunately obliged to decline about 650 frames of exhibits. The accepted exhibits, together with invited exhibits, make a total of 2248 exhibition frames. This makes FINLANDIA 2017 the second largest exhibition ever arranged in Finland and the largest one in Europe in 2017!
