Tampere Smart City Week Conference & Expo and DigITre postponed to June

Nokia Arena’s first exhibition event Tampere Smart City Week Conference & Expo and DigITre were to be held at the turn of January and February. Due to the current pandemic situation, a decision has been made to postpone the set of events until June. Tampere Smart City Week Conference and Expo on smart city development and the new ICT professional event of the Tampere Trade Fairs Group, DigITre, will be organised from 14−15 June 2022 at Nokia Arena. A unique start-up event, led by the frontrunner in smart collaboration, ArcticStartup Media Oy, will also be experienced at the fair. Registration for the set of events will be open throughout spring.

The organisers of Tampere Smart City Week Conference & Expo and DigITre, the City of Tampere, Business Tampere and Tampere Trade Fairs Group, have decided to postpone the set of events until June due to the worsening pandemic situation and the tighter restrictions.

“Postponing the Conference and Expo and DigITre was decidedly seen as the most responsible solution in light of the current situation. The health and safety of people are our top priorities and we want to make sure that everyone can enjoy a full fair experience in this amazing, new arena. The unprecedented offering of this set of events also deserves to be made available at a time when meeting people face-to-face is once again safe in terms of health. We wish to warmly thank all our partners for their commitment to the event. We are extremely excited about what the upcoming DigITre and Tampere Smart City Week Conference and Expo events have in store for us in June and wish everyone a warm and safe welcome to this number one event of the year in digital, data and smarter solutions,” says Project Manager Sami Siurola from the Tampere Trade Fairs Group.
