Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre and Mall of Tripla, which was chosen as the best shopping centre in the Nordic countries last year, are intensifying their cooperation. The proximity of two strong commercial operators aims to strengthen the amenity, vitality and attractiveness of the new city center of Helsinki, the Pasila area, in accordance with the City of Helsinki’s city strategy.
The strong Helsinki operators Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre and Tripla have started all year-round cooperation to serve their common customers in a more versatile way. Cooperation brings benefits and advantages to the customers of both operators.
Diverse cooperation can be seen, among others, in ticket benefits and trade fair offers for the customers of both operators, experiential programme surprises at Tripla and promotion points and activations inspired by trade fair themes in the shops of the shopping centre. The common goal is also to develop the accessibility of the Pasila area, for example with signage and functional parking services.
– In the neighbourhood of Tripla and Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre, one plus one is more than two. Pasila is already quite an event hub, but together we, the two landmarks of Pasila, can make the area even more pulsating and vibrant, says Anni Vepsäläinen, CEO of Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre.
– Over the past few years, Pasila has developed into an urban and lively residential area, which will further strengthen its role as a versatile service producer in the future. It is in the interest of both of us that we can offer more comprehensive experiences to consumers and develop the area to become even more unique, says Päivi Salonen, CEO of Mall of Tripla.
