“At Paasitorni, we strive to provide our clients with the best service, ensuring meticulous planning and flawless execution for every event,” says Anu Penttilä, chief commercial officer at Paasitorni.

Designed by architect Karl Lindahl and erected in 1908, Paasitorni’s granite structure is a timeless masterpiece. The building’s 1925 extension, reflects Nordic Classicism, and adds to the venue’s historical significance. Helsinki Congress Paasitorni’s impressive façade is made of stone hewn from rock located on the site. “Paasitorni is historically important and we are very proud to be currently on our way to hopefully become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It would be fantastic for the building to get the recognition it deserves,” says Penttilä.
