When it comes to conferences facilities, Central Finland and its capital, Jyväskylä offer a wealth of options – everything from meeting rooms seating 10 people to idyllic country manors. For that special evening celebration, too, there are various alternatives for accommodating substantial numbers of conference guests.
Jyväskylä’s immediate surroundings, in the heart of the beautiful Finnish lake country, offer numerous opportunities for recreation and refreshment to complement a congress or conference. A summer evening cruise on glorious Lake Päijänne, a bowl of fish stew enjoyed on the lake shore, open-air dancing, a snowshoe safari, a little fishing... which option would suit your event best? Perhaps a concert with music by a Finnish composer? Or a voyage of discovery into the creations of world-famous architect Alvar Aalto? And all this just a short journey from the city. The personnel at local conference and congress service offices are skilled professionals who will design the ideal social programme for you.
Jyväskylä is fortunate to have a wide variety of well-appointed conference and congress facilities, successfully accommodating the full range, from an intimate meeting involving just a few individuals to mass events attended by 20,000 people. Options available range from cosy private function rooms to the congress services offered by the Jyväskylä Pavilion international congress and trade fair center. Central Finland also offers a number of attractive locations, such as high-quality hotels, holiday centers and rural retreats, to assist the organizers of social programmes and special occasions for congresses.
