TAMPERE – Your Host City
The City of Tampere was founded in 1779, on the banks of Tammerkoski rapids. From the 19th century on, Tampere developed into a leading industrial centre in Nordic countries, especially in textiles, engineering and wood processing industry. This valuable heritage is still visible in Tampere's cityscape, and the old mills along the Tammerkoski Rapids count among Finland's national heritage landscapes.
Tampere’s progress grew from its factories up until the 1970’s and the start of industrial restructuring. Now, traditional industrial manufacturing has left the city centre, but the old mills have been resettled by ITC businesses and other aspects of the Information Society that make Tampere a hub of expertise in Finland.
Tampere proper has 210,000 inhabitants and the population of the entire Tampere sub-region reaches 300,000. The economic area of Tampere Region comprises over 450,000 inhabitants. Tampere is a population magnet: net migration to Tampere is some 2,000 people annually. With the neighbouring municipalities considered, net migration into the region is 4,000 people each year. According to several tourism and business surveys, Tampere ranks first in Finland in terms of attraction.
