Messukeskus also hosted 1368 meetings, congresses and other corporate events.
"2013 was full of action in Messukeskus. In addition to hosting and organising hundreds of events, the corporate image and indoor facilities went through a complete makeover. The Gallery, restaurant world, northern entrance and a number of our meeting facilities were refurbished. Messukeskus also got a new digital signpost system with hundreds of screens, which improves the quality of service for our visitors and creates a totally new form of advertising for our partners", states CEO Christer Haglund from Messukeskus.
The next event for the general public at Messukeskus is MP 2014 Motorcycle Exhibition on 31 January - 2 February.
Messukeskus promotes Finnish welfare by enabling effective face to face contacts at exhibitions, meetings, conferences and other events. Exhibitions are the fifth most used marketing medium in Finland. Face to face encounters make the most impact, are the most social and create experiences like no other medium.
