How WSF was born

World Sauna Forum was originally created to spread the message of the authentic Finnish sauna experience, to make people find the sweet relaxation and the health benefits. In 2024, World Sauna Forum will take place for the sixth time, greater than ever! Our passion is to help international sauna businesses to thrive, and show the multiplicity of sauna innovations to the world – and, of course, to gather all sauna lovers together to ‘think inside the box’.

Our story

The first World Sauna Forum was arranged five years ago in Central Finland, the official sauna region. Since then it has grown bigger every year and moved to Tampere, the World Sauna Capital.

Past events

By this day, World Sauna Forum has been organized five times as a live event, and once as a virtual event. It has consisted of talks, panel discussions, business matchmaking, and workshops around the Finnish sauna experience. And of course, a lot of bathing in different kinds of authentic Finnish saunas!
