Important Meetings since 1229

Turku, the European Capital of Culture 2011, is the oldest city in Finland and an exceptional choice for conferences. Whether you are hosting a dozen or a thousand guests, domestic or international, Turku will make a lasting impression. Turku has the soul of an international culture capital in the approachable setting of a small city.

Thanks to the European Culture Capital year 2011, the Aura River flows through a milieu more fascinating than ever before, and the Turku Central Railway Station is brightened by the new Logomo, a modern venue located in a historic industrial setting, Logomo is an unparalleled arena for meetings, congresses and other events.

This City Was Made for Walking

Turku is an ideal choice for larger events, as the compact size and versatile venues in the city create a functional, pleasant environment. All congress hotels in Turku are located in the city centre, within walking distance from one another and the green riverside.
How many other international congress cities can offer the same?

20 000 Islands in the Archipelago

One of the unique features of Turku is its location by the sea. The Aura River divides the city in two, and flows into the sea. That is the gateway to Turku Archipelago, often called the most beautiful in the world, reaching all the way from Turku to Stockholm.
For congress and banquet hosts, the archipelago offers dozens of locations. Your guests can work and relax in the scenic archipelago nature.

Turku provides a perfect setting for your conference, and Visit Turku is glad to assist you with the preparations.
