Banquet

One of the highlights of a congress is often a gala dinner or similar social event. There are various options for arranging them in the Jyväskylä region, from functional premises located close to the city centre to atmospheric sites in the nearby areas.

For large congresses, evening programme can be easily arranged for over 1,000 people at Jyväskylä Paviljonki or Peurunka Areena. The Frans&Sandra Restaurant in Original Sokos Hotel Alexandra offers a magnificent setting to events of up to 200 people, and Spa Hotel Scandic Laajavuori offers a beautiful forest landscape to events of 500 people.

One popular option is a cruise and a Finnish evening at Savutuvan Apaja. This way, congress visitors get hand-on experience in the Finnish way of life.

Memorable evenings can also be arranged in the atmospheric cowshed of the Varjola farm, stylish setting of Taulu Mansion or the Harmooni Restaurant, or the tradition-rich Tupaswilla.
