Concert and Congress Centre Tampere Hall is experiencing the biggest makeover in its 25-year history and driving for an increase in revenue and visitor volume in the upcoming years. Several projects are intended to boost the Hall’s competitiveness: the new event facility extension in May 2016, revamped restaurants and lobby point in Winter 2016 and Spring 2017, and the Moomin Museum, which will open in May 2017, just in time to celebrate Finland’s 100th independence anniversary. Valued at around EUR 22 million, the overall renovation of the Hall and its services serves to increase the already-strong appeal and development of the Tampere region.
The extensive investments of Tampere Hall made in 2015–2017 are the result of collaboration between its owner, City of Tampere authorities, and various regional and national partners. The first visible results of the project were revealed in May 2016, when three new meeting and event facilities – Maestro, Riffi and Duetto 1 & 2 – were opened in the renovated area.
