Why bring a congress to Tampere?

Tampere is a lively and vibrant international congress city, where the developing services and infrastructure of a large city combine with the atmosphere of a small town. Tampere’s strengths are the active world of science and business, not forgetting the city’s rich cultural offer, which also serves conference guests. Tampere is a safe, human-sized city, where the services are located close to each other, and which is easy to take over on foot or by city bike!

Why to Tampere Hall?

The location of the Tampere Hall in the middle of the city means short transitions from one service to another. The nearest hotel, Courtyard by Marriott Tampere City, is located under the roof of Tampere Hall. There are several other hotels in the nearby. In addition to the congress, Tampere Hall offers an extensive cultural program, not forgetting the world´s only Moomin Museum! We are easily accessible by public transport, but there are also several car parks nearby. Nearby shopping malls offer shopping opportunities. There are several other venues in the vicinity of the Tampere Hall, which, when combined, make the congress a functional whole and an unforgettable experience for its participants.

The building’s versatile facilities are suitable for both small expert meetings and large congresses, with several parallel lecture and group work spaces. The exhibition spaces are suitable for spacious and bright foyers, and the versatile Park Hall is suitable for the needs of a larger exhibition – or for a festive congress dinner. You can also get various services for building and furnishing the exhibition from Tampere Hall. The in-house technical staff and up-to-date technology ensure that the event runs smoothly. With our help, various hybrid and virtual implementations are also successful.

Responsibly in Tampere Hall

When organizing events, the responsibility of the service provider plays an important role today. Tampere Hall launched its first environmental program in 1992, and as a result of long-term work, our property met the criteria for a carbon-neutral property in November 2019. The event at our premises can be carbon-neutral. Compensate for the emissions of your event to the own carbon sink of Tampere Hall.

Safety is also a responsibility. As a security business license holder we manage even the most demanding security level arrangements, not forgetting the various requirements related to health security. All facilities at Tampere Hall are accessible, and our staff is trained to guide and assist customers with physical and sensory impairments. In its operations, Tampere Hall adheres to the principles of equality and a safe event.
