Subcontracting Trade Fair starts next week in Tampere with 900 companies


After a long wait, Finland’s leading industrial fair will be held on 21.-23. September 2021 at the Tampere Exhibition and Sports Centre. In three days, the Subcontracting Trade Fair and AlihankintaHEAT will offer visitors a unique overview of the industry’s prospects and the future of the industry, with more than 900 exhibitors. The theme of the trade fair to be held safety first is Business from Data.  

The Asta fair for construction and housing held at the beginning of September successfully opened the Tampere Trade Fairs group after a long pandemic break. The group’s largest trade fair event is currently being built at the Tampere Exhibition and Sports Centre health safety first.

 - Subcontracting Trade Fair has brought together industry companies and experts in good and more challenging times for 33 years. Hopefully, the pioneer role as a courageous leader will also work now that society needs to be opened up safely to events as well. There are more than 900 exhibitors involved, so the industrial crowd is really seen under the same roof at the end of a long wait. After the past virtual year, it is clear that there is a strong need for industry players to meet their customers and partners face to face. Hopefully, event visitors will also be allowed to go to the fair to do business, and companies’ teleworking and travel instructions would not become an obstacle. Fortunately, restrictions are finally being eased, so there is still hope to get the professionals on the go. We definitely emphasize health safety and the most important guideline is to come to the fair in good health, says the event’s Project Manager, Marketing and Communications Director Tanja Järvensivu of Tampere Trade Fairs.
