SAMK Campus Pori
as a venue of occasions

Big conferences, seminars, annual celebrations and gala evenings can be arranged in versatile and experiential environments in the Agora hall and Atrium lobby on SAMK Campus Pori. 

An impressive stage of endless possibilities

The Agora hall is the largest single conference space in Pori and the nearby areas. The hall can seat 500-1000 persons depending on e.g. seating arrangements.

The Agora hall in the centre of the campus and Atrium lobby full of light are suitable for international conferences and national seminars. The hall and its surroundings offer an inspiring and functional location for e.g. general meetings, anniversary banquets or gala dinners.

Accessibility has been considered in the design of the entire campus and the hall, which is on street level. Thanks to even floors, accessibility is not an issue and moving around is easy.

Modern technology and live broadcasting

Modern conference technology and a high-quality sound system guarantee both functionality and excellence. Live online streaming and multi-camera productions make it possible to participate in events from anywhere in the world.

The hall's lighting and AV systems make it easy to create the desired atmosphere. The stage can be planned and modified according to the nature of the event and the users' wishes.

The campus offers a modern 1 gigabyte (1,000 Mbit/s) wired and wireless network.

If a smaller space is needed or the nature of the event requires multiple spaces, the Agora hall can be divided into three sections – each of which have their own sound and presentation systems. In addition to the main hall, we have conference and work spaces for smaller groups (28 different spaces in total).


Good food and other services make the occasion perfect

It is easy to combine the occasions with customized services provided by the whole campus. The restaurant services are provided by the Juvenes Company Ltd. Juvenes is the first company arranging  catering services for celebrations which  has been awarded the coat of arms of Chaîne des Rôtisseurs in Finland. Juneves provides quality services from everyday eating to celebrations.

In addition, the occasion can include welfare services and use teaching and research laboratories and exhibition space for different purposes.

Pori's hotels and many other services are only a short walk away.
