Season’s greetings
Bonnes fêtes
Prettige feestdagen


Thank you to everyone that we collaborated with in 2023.
On the occasion of our 30th anniversary it was wonderful to look back and celebrate the beautiful community that has come together across Finland and the Benelux, as well as plan for the future, with a refreshed strategy and an exciting programme.

Our office will be closed from Friday, 22 December and we will be back at our desks on Tuesday, 2 January.

We look forward to seeing you in the new year!

Warm wishes,

The FCI Team
