Prepare WOMEX

As we arrive at the final hours of our countdown, we will soon be opening the doors and celebrate the 25th Edition of WOMEX!

To help ensure your stay is as smooth as possible in Tampere, Finland, we've put together a handy checklist that takes the legwork out of trip planning, allowing you to get straight down to business as soon as you arrive.

Collecting Your Badge and Delegate Bag

The WOMEX Registration counter will be located on the ground floor of the Tampere Hall.

Delegates should go to the following counters to get their WOMEX Badges:

- Already fully paid? Bring your WOMEX confirmation and your ID card and collect your badge at the Check-In Counter.

- Not yet registered, nor paid or partially paid? We're happy to help you at the Registration (Walk-Up) Counter.

Registration opening times:
From Wednesday, 23 October until Saturday, 26 October - 10:00 to 18:00 hours.
Please note that the Trade Fair will open at 14:00 hours on Wednesday, 23 October.

Arrivals after 18:00 hours:
Delegates arriving after the registration counter closes can pick up a one-day wristband for the Opening and Nightcases at the Tampere Hall. Please exchange it for a lanyard and an all-days wristband at the registration counter the next day to have access to the entire event.

The registration counter is open from Wednesday to Saturday between 10:00 and 18:00.
