Located in the heart of Hämeenlinna, Verkatehdas Event Centre opened its doors in 2007. Our purpose is to ensure that there is a place in Hämeenlinna to organise different types of events that bring people together, whether they be meetings, concerts, hybrid or virtual events, fairs, corporate functions or even mass vaccinations against worldwide pandemics, as witnessed in 2021.

The red-bricked factory buildings of the Verkatehdas property were renovated in a way that honoured the Hämeenlinna Verkatehdas factory that had been manufacturing baize fabrics since 1895. More than half a million visitors arrive at Verkatehdas each year to enjoy various events.
