In the Taloustutkimus 2023 business decision-makers survey (TEP), Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre emerged as one of the leaders in its sector in Finland. Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre was the undisputed top choice among companies in the sector for the functionality of its exhibition and fair facilities. It also received the highest ratings for service offerings, reliability, and operational dependability.

Furthermore, Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre (brand name Messukeskus) received the highest ratings from business decision-makers for its professional customer service and the competence of its staff.

In the upcoming year, our focus will be on improving customer service and sustainability efforts. We have long been committed to social, economic, and environmental responsibility, and our flagship initiatives are advancing sustainability across the sector in Finland, says CEO Anni Vepsäläinen.

The factors influencing the corporate image were assessed based on the reliability of companies, services, staff expertise, customer service and communication with customers, service speed, functionality of the premises, price-quality ratio and marketing communication.
