1. Oodi – Helsinki Central Library

Oodi – Helsinki Central Library is much more than a library. It is a living meeting place, right at the city center of Helsinki. Oodi is an urban public space, that is open to everyone. However, there are five great facilities well-suited for different kinds and sizes of events. Facility sizes vary from 31m2 room Aura to 250m2 auditorium-style space Kino Regina, which is a suitable venue for lectures, film screening, and other events. There is also a kitchen of 30m2 which you can reserve for a small event as well!

2. Little Finlandia (Pikku Finlandia)

Little Finlandia, provides unique, high-quality facilities for seminars, meetings, events, and congresses. Finlandia Hall will continue to provide their services during the renovation project, operating in Little Finlandia. Little Finlandia offers facilities for up to 1000 people. There are 4 separate spaces with a capacity for 200-400 people, the latest conference technology and diverse services. You can reserve the whole building or parts of it. The venue can be modified as you wish, whether it is a more formal or casual event.

In addition, there is also a cafe in Little Finlandia where you can enjoy a cup of coffee or after-work bubbles, or even lunch on weekdays.

From the magnificent concert hall with seating possible for 1693 people to smaller venues suitable for concerts, meetings, and seminars.
