The 9th European Feminist Research Conference - Sex & Capital, EFRC 2015
3-6 June, 2015
Kirsti Lempiäinen & Sex & Capital – organizing committee, University of Lapland
We organized together with Rovaniemi-Lapland Congresses an international conference Sex & Capital in June 2015 at the University of Lapland. There were over 300 participants, so there was a lot of work to do during a long period of time. Without Marja-Leena’s (Porsanger) and Kaisa’s (Juupaluoma) amazing know-how and professionalism we would have been in trouble many times. Planning, implementation and the aftermath of the conference were done with experience, efficiency and energetically. The participants have sent their appraisals of a conference which was the best organized they ever attended, for which we can only thank the congresses service. We warmly recommend!

Regional Council of Lapland
Regional Council of Lapland has organized the FEM Conferences since 1998. Nowadays FEM is one of the largest and most significant mineral industry events in Europe. FEM aims to promote and develop extracting industry regionally and globally. The biannual event includes world-class presentations by invited speakers, pre-conference short courses, a trade show, and excursions. FEM brings together exploration and mining industry experts and leaders worldwide. Since 2011 the number of delegates has been over 1000.
There is a separate bidding for FEM conference services each time it is organized. Rovaniemi-Lapland Congresses (RLC) has won the bidding for every FEM so far (1999 – 2015, nine conferences). Rovaniemi-Lapland Congresses has handled among others conference registrations, hotel bookings, trade show bookings and all incoming payments. All the arrangements have been handled with high professionalism. The feedback from conference delegates has been very positive. Regional Council of Lapland recommends Rovaniemi-Lapland Congresses services for any event organizers.

Professor Glen Coutts
The work of the congress office in organising the world summit was outstanding. Before the event, the organisation was meticulous, every the detail was attended to by Rovaniemi-Lapland Congresses. During the months leading up to the event, the staff were a source of great support and advice to us on the academic committee. During the event, everything ran extremely smoothly; helpful staff always on hand, arrangements for speakers, accommodation, transport, tours and catering. I have been involved in arranging many conferences in different countries and the feedback from our delegates was extremely positive. Delegates from all over the world left the University of Lapland with great memories of a very successful summit, I am happy to recommend the congress office.

Very reliable and professional, fulfilling wishes we did not even make. The Congress office had active, functioning connections to local tourism and other companies, so we had colourful and interesting events and exceptionally good food for very reasonable price. We have received positive comments on the programme, the facilities, the food and catering. Especially welcome was the help of the young staff members who were always present when needed. We got a most memorable congress thanks to Rovaniemi-Lapland Congresses.

"The whole congress was very well organised. The punctuality of each point of program was very pleasant. The food was very nice, even excellent!", wrote one of the almost 200 participants of the EUPRIO 2001 Conference held in Rovaniemi 14-17 June, 2001. The feedback of the delegates was more than positive. They were thrilled with the way the conference was organised. The annual conference of European Universities Public Relations and Information Officers was hosted by the University of Lapland Communications Department. Rovaniemi-Lapland Congresses took care of all practical arrangements of the EUPRIO Conference in a very professional way. I’m more than happy to recommend the congress services.
