GPD 2017 Venue

New Venue concept – open concept adopted to

  • Enhance networking activities
  • Improve attendee logistics between sessions
  • Provide new and different experience to all participants

The conference will be held in a new facility, Tähtiareena, which is part of the Tampere Trade Fair Complex. The new venue enables us to stage the GPD Conference in one open 5,000 square meter space, which will be divided into six seminar sections with their own presentation and audio units. The open nature of venue makes moving between sessions and presentations easy and efficient – the same is true for participant networking. At the center of the open space we will construct a special Expo and Step Change area accessible from all directions, which could not be effectively done in the old venue. Running from session to session between floors, corridors and closed doors is no longer necessary.

Welcome to the new GPD!
