Congress Hall is the pearl of Paasitorni with its tall ceilings, splendid chandeliers and impressive balconies. As early as in 1908, when it was completed, the venue was referred to as “the biggest and grandest evening entertainment hall in the city”. Congress Hall’s marvellous setting allows you to organise successful events for up to 800 participants. It can also serve as an unforgettable backdrop for various kinds of celebrations, from gala dinners to relaxed Christmas parties, starting from 150 people upwards.
When you hold an event in Congress Hall, you also have at your disposal the bright foyer and lobby, both ideal for networking as well as for serving cocktails and snacks. Nor do small-scale exhibitions pose a problem.
The screen technology of the Congress Hall was totally renewed in 2019, to better enable even the most demanding technical productions. Please contact our Sales for more information!
