Aboa Congress & Event

Turku – a popular and versatile meeting place

We know Turku like the back of our hand. Turku offers excellent conditions for a successful event. Meetings, congresses, seminars and other events can be organised in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way because the distances in Turku are short and most destinations can be reached on foot. Turku is also easy to reach, whether you arrive by car, train, bus, plane or ferry.

Turku offers many different types of meeting venue, among them Logomo, which is a converted machine hall near the railway station, and the newly renovated city theatre next to the Aura river. There are also excellent accommodation options for thousands of guests in Turku.

In addition to modern meeting venues and comfortable hotels, Turku also offers a wide range of activities, a beautiful archipelago and an interesting history. In Turku, we can always find memorable activities and experiences to give your event that little something extra.
