The architect Alvar Aalto, who reached the peak of his career, designed Finlandia Hall as part of the modern city center plan. The building was expanded for the first time in 1975 with a congress wing, which was completed as a media center for the European Security and Cooperation Conference (ESCEC) held in the summer of 1975. The next expansion of Finlandia Hall, the meeting and exhibition space Veranda, was opened under the terrace floor on the Karamzininranta side, Finlandia Hall will open after the basic renovation in autumn 2024.
Since its opening, thousands of meetings, concerts, international conferences, parties and state events have been organized in Finlandia Hall with quality professionalism for 50 years.
