Financial Figures

In 2022, the revenue of Tampere-talo Ltd was 14.7 million euros, compared to 6.2 million euros in the previous year 2021. With this revenue, the company returned to the scale of operations it had before the pandemic.

The increase in activity in the event industry was also reflected in the number of events and visitors. In 2022, Tampere-talo was involved in producing a total of over a thousand events, which attracted a total of approximately 381,000 event attendees. When including Tampere Hall’s daytime visitors in this attendance figure, the company’s activities reached a total of 475,000 visitors.

Concerts and conferences draw people to Tampere, who also spend money on various services. Tampere-talo generates approximately 50 million euros in tourism and event revenue for the Tampere economic area. This figure is based on a study conducted by the University of Tampere’s research center Synergos in 2018, with a reevaluated figure for 2019.

According to a study by the external research firm Salmi Analytics, the Snow Queen Ice Ballet brought approximately 3.4 million euros in tourism and event revenue to the Tampere economic area during the turn of the year 2022-2023.

Tampere-talo Group directly employs 57 staff and indirectly provides employment for hundreds of event industry professionals.
