The centre point for events in Turku Welcome to Logomo, a 19th-century locomotive shed given a new lease on life as a cultural showcase in 2011. Logomo took centre stage during Turkuâ€™s tenure as the European Capital of Culture, which required a large, adaptable and centrally located venue for hosting dozens of different cultural events. Today, Logomo is a centre for culture, the arts and creative economy, a place full of life from morning until the small hours. In addition to serving as an event venue, Logomo also offers office space, where comfort and community are combined in a whole new
space concept, using the very latest technologies. Ever since its inception, Logomo has always steered right clear of mediocrity, whether talking about cookiecutter space solutions or uninspiring architecture. This uncompromising approach has borne fruit: Logomo has been discovered as not only a popular venue for uniquely intimate celebrations, it is also an unparalleled cultural arena and business cluster. Come discover it for yourself! Read on and learn more about Logomo, for which few events are too big and hardly any event is too small.
â€œWe firmly believe that something new and unexpected can come from a synthesis of different approaches and widely varying expertise, not to mention creating just the right setting for them.â€? Heikki Hartela

Big but smart
Logomo’s primary space is Logomo Hall, where events for up to 3,500 people can be arranged. The versatility of the space comes from its unique auditorium moving on air-cushions. Just by changing its position, the space can be made into a flat-floored banquet hall or an arena-like stage venue. One of the Logomo Hall’s special features is its virtual acoustics system, which always offers the optimal acoustics for everything from speech to opera and hard rock. By combining Logomo’s halls and other spaces, it is possible to host large-scale congresses, trade fairs or even indoor festivals with multiple stages.
“The people at Logomo provided us with such amount of help and new ideas, it made our event a success.” Ari Katajamäki, Trimble Energy & Public Administration
“Logomo is the perfect venue, a world-class stage and the customisation options for the facilities are fantastic.’’ Michael Monroe
The genius of Logomo Hall is truly revealed when hosting a slightly smaller event. Adapted from a shipbuilding industry technique, auditorium moving on air-cushions allows you to set up a space that precisely suits your needs. The optimal number of guests naturally depends on whether we are furnishing the space with banquet tables, lecture desks or rows of chairs - or even leaving the space empty for standing. In addition to Logomo Hall, Logomo also has other large spaces and halls, which can be combined to form a wide variety of space configurations for a wide variety of events. Just contact us and we’ll help you come up with ideas for your event.
