What is ACCFI?

What is Open Space?

We’ve all had those ‘magic moments’ at a conference where you meet the right person and have a wonderful conversation that is just perfect for you.

Open space conferences focus around having more of these moments.

How can we increase serendipity?

It might seem odd to say we can increase luck. But that exactly what we are here to do. Open space does everything possible to increase your chances of having magic moments. We know that they are here, and together we can find them.

Here’s some of the things we do:

More opportunities

Lot’s of spaces & Time More opportunities to Find insights & people you need

Broadcast topics of interest

Unlike normal conferences, at open space you can say
“I’m interested ____” and explore that area with others

Encourage movement

The right session is there,
you just have to find it.
Open spaces encourage you to move from session to session until you find the right place


Small groups of the right people allow for real and close connections to form. Open spaces put effort into making it effortless to connect to each other.

Are you the right attendee for an Open Space?

ACCFI Details

Agile Coach Camp Finland is a weekend retreat of brilliant, curious minds sharing and building knowledge together.

We give space for great things to emerge for people who help others get better in their thinking and doing - such as agile coaches / scrum masters, organizational / business coaches, consultants, tech coaches / seniors - to share in the form of an open space. You are welcome to join us for in-depth discussions about developing software, people and organizations. You can try out new ideas, facilitation techniques, games, practice programming with katas and dojos, get advice on a burning problem of yours or even jam with a guitar, do yoga, or go on a hike together.

On Friday, we spend the day with pre-scheduled workshop topics. Full Saturday and Sunday morning until midday we run an open space conference, facilitated by Diana Larsen, Antti Kirjavainen and Karoliina Luoto. It’s not all work, we’ll make sure there’s sessions that take you from head space to physical space too.

The event takes place 20.-22.5.2016 and location is Herrankukkaro. The tickets include a ride from Turku to Herrankukkaro.

Follow @agilefinland for #accfi on twitter to stay tuned on the news.


The price of the weekend is 350 euros and it includes the event from Friday to Sunday, stay at Herrankukkaro in shared rooms (2-4 people), foods and transportation from Turku to Herrankukkaro.

Ticket sales is now closed, thanks to everyone joining this year!


Herrankukkaro is a beautiful, isolated fisherman village style retreat location reserved specially for us for the weekend. It’s located in Turku Archipelago area (Naantali). The location is known for it’s beauty, unique setting (have you ever stayed in a bird cottage or a grandma cottage -framed room? Ever tried the world’s largest smoke sauna? Herrankukkaro is your chance for these) and great quality food that provides us the perfect location to build our ideas forward. The location alone is worth a “weekend with friends” for the price of the event we’re setting up. The place has been selected with the idea that it’s the greatest place to welcome our foreign coach friends for a weekend in Finland.

Schedule outline

The ride from Turku to Herrankukkaro will leave around 11 on Friday. Exact details later.

Friday is prescheduled workshops and Saturday-Sunday is open space.
