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.

Good food and other services make the event perfect

It is easy to combine the occasions with customized services provided by the whole campus. The restaurant services are provided by the Compass-Group Oy. The campus restaurants Silvia and Café Agora make it possible to organise a variety of festive events, especially in the evenings and at weekends.

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