03 September 2019

Tieto was one of the main partners of SuomiAreena 2019, the biggest public debate forum in Finland. The week took place in Pori from the 15th to the 19th of July attracting 73 000 visitors! 

The themes of SuomiAreena 2019 were future skills and innovations – and as a main partner of the event we organized full round of activities throughout the week in Pori.

"Participating SuomiAreena gave us a great opportunity to take part in the public discussion and introduce our data-driven innovations to the event visitors. SuomiAreena offers a great platform for different stakeholders to share and discuss about their future visions and views”, says Kia Haring, Head of Global Communications and Sustainability.
