Event Venues

Tampere has a wide variety of venues to offer for event organizers. Whether you are organizing a sports event, outdoor festival, concert, congress or trade show, you will find a suitable location in the city.

The choice of venue depends on what kind of event you are organizing and when. Accessibility, target audience and rental costs must also be factored in. If you want to organize your event outdoors, the availability of electricity, water and required infrastructure will also affect the choice of venue.
