A record number of 10 000 conference delegates

9.12.2016

The year 2016 has been the year of large conferences. There has been a steep rise in conference delegates this year in Tampere.

The number of conference delegates in Tampere will reach 10 000 this year, being the highest number in ten years. This succesful amount of guests is second only to the delegate number of 2006, in which Finland held the presidency of the Council of the EU. This in itself increases the number of events and delegates.

Strong economic impact

Based on data from the Finland Convention Bureau delegate survey, we can see that conferences generate a substantial income for the businesses involved in conferences within Tampere. This year it will be a sum of nearly 12 million euros.

The biggest conferences of 2016 include the JCI European Conference and Nordic Gerontology conference in June, as well as the 12th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion conference in September.
