From stadium sized concerts to industrial conferences
Oulu offers fantastic facilities for events of all sizes throughout the entire year and including all seasons. The annual medical event arranged by Duodecim attracts approximately 1 000 attendances to the Oulu Music Hall. The start-up event Polar Bear Pitching gathered an audience of more than 100 people to the shores outside the Raatti Stadium where the guests were able to follow company presentations – some of them held from a hole in the ice. Oulu’s winter is exotic so why not take advantage of the snowy scenery like the International Winter Bicycling Conference did when hosting their conference in the City of Oulu.
The Air Guitar World Championships’ finals attract more than 7 000 people to the Oulu market square each year and Extreme Run brings together a group of approximately 1 000 runners to the Nallikari shores every year.
Most international guests arrive to Oulu for congresses on finance, medicine, technology or natural sciences.
A typical science congress lasts for 4 days in general and has approximately 150 participants. The number of conferences held in Oulu show a steady growth each year. In 2014 a total of 22 international congress events were held here.
We offer you the facilities and opportunities to hold even larger, national events such as party congresses, large scale exhibitions or annual general meetings. Here at Oulu we have the answers for you whether it concerns facilities, traffic connections, accommodation capacity or support services.
