The company responsible for Tampere Deck Arena’s business management has been established

Tampere Deck & Arena Management Oy is responsible for the arena’s operations and the development of experience services together with its commercial partners.

Tampere Deck & Arena Management Oy has started operations under the leadership of Marko Hurme. The newly-established company is responsible for the arena’s operations and the development of experience services together with its commercial partners. The company is located in the Tampere Deck Visit Center, just a stone’s throw from the site.

According to Marko Hurme, who joined Tampere Deck & Arena Management Oy as its CEO on 1 November, the founding of the company marks an important moment in the arena’s operations.

“The plans are now really starting to materialise! After many years of thorough preparations, the site’s construction is quickly progressing. We are now starting to build the arena’s brand and business operations,” says Hurme, who adds that sleeves have been rolled up and the plan is crystal clear.

“First of all, I want to meet every partner in person and discuss how we’ll work together to make the arena a success. We will also need to listen closely to all future users, fans and customers of the arena.”

Once completed, the arena will serve as a venue for a variety of experiences and services that both event organisers and paying audiences will find very easy to access. Developing a completely new digital customer path in collaboration with the entire partner network is one of the items on the new company’s agenda.

“We want to provide our guests with unprecedented experiences, and companies with agile and inspiring ways to work with us. The platform model and digitalisation will create a great framework that will be unique even on a global scale,” Hurme promises.

Towards the new arena: Tampere Deck Arena will definitely be a success story

The streets remain in the same place, but Tampere around them has changed. That was the first thought that struck me when I returned to Tampere one cold November day. My old hometown has greatly improved since my youth, which I spent in Viinikka and many other neighbourhoods; after initial bafflement, I was really happy to see the changes.

Tampere is now developing faster than ever: with the completion of the Deck, Tampere will have a new neighbourhood and the new arena will be its beating heart. It’s wonderful to be part of this development!

Tampere Deck Arena will be a unique experience centre in the world. The visitor-friendly location in the heart of the city encourages guests to come to the venue by public transport, and this – together with its state-of-the-art architecture – is what makes the arena so attractive. With the help of new technology, we will be able to create completely new experiences that start from the moment visitors come up with the idea of participating in an event. And the arena will not sleep even when the lights are switched off. The restaurants, cafes, hotel and casino will serve both us locals and visitors around the clock.

Tampere Deck Arena will definitely be a success story. The story will be the result of our joint efforts. I promise to bring decades of experience and connections from service and event businesses to the company, as well as my positively boyish enthusiasm to make good things happen.

Something like this arena cannot be built by just one person. I’m very pleased to be able to jump on board this train, whose other passengers already include dozens of leading players in their fields.
Dear partners: thank you for taking part! I can’t wait to meet all of you in person. And if you are still considering working with the arena: please contact us! There is still room for new enthusiastic partners in the front row of experiences.

Lapland Hotels: A great hotel experience is the result of innovative details

A great hotel experience is the result of innovative details

"Our desire to provide new experiences is reflected in the design of the new hotel." Ari Vuorentausta, Lapland Hotels

Lapland Hotels’ 18 unique hotels are located in the urban environments in Finnish cities, busy ski resorts, and on the edge of the wilderness and the rugged landscapes of northern Lapland.

Our latest hotel is being built in a completely new environment as an integral part of Tampere Deck Arena. This hotel, located in the heart of the Arena, will offer guests the opportunity to enjoy all the services, events and experiences in the area.

This project takes Lapland Hotels to new frontiers, even on a global scale. Our desire to provide new experiences is reflected in the design of the new hotel. The rooms with boxes that open directly onto the arena are sure to impress even the most demanding guests, while the 70 rooms with a sauna will ensure the hotel offers a distinctively Finnish feel that international visitors, in particular, will appreciate.

The demand for experiences is emphasized in the travel industry, and this is also the case in the hotel business. The setting must be great, and the complete customer experience relies on high quality and excellent service. Elements that enhance authenticity, ease and well-being are valued, and guests like to be impressed and surprised. Uniqueness together with innovative and exciting details mean that hotel guests will share their experience with their friends and family.

The massive Tampere Deck Arena project highlights the importance of collaboration – and we are bringing in our experience from northern Finland. The people in Lapland are used to working together towards a common goal, and the Arena and its unparalleled services will benefit from collaboration between strong partners. This is a network of partners who are creating something completely new and unique in Finland.

Ari Vuorentausta, CEO, Lapland Hotels

The unique hotel that is due to open in the Arena will be run by Lapland Hotels. The state-of-the-art complex will offer Arena guests more than 280 hotel rooms and comprehensive services, including a restaurant and bar seating 350 guests. The hotel’s many special solutions will reflect the uniqueness of the arena concept. laplandhotels.com

Veikkaus: Collaborating to create a next-generation casino

Collaborating to create a next-generation casino

“Casino Tampere will harness technologies of the future to improve customer experience, security and a responsible gaming experience.” Ari Tuuli, Veikkaus

Competition for people’s attention and leisure time is getting fiercer. Experiences are constantly and easily available in the digital world, and they are often delivered straight to your sofa at home. Yet, people want to be offered new experiences live and in the company of other people. Sports events, festivals and concerts across the world that bring hundreds of thousands of people together are proof of this.

Veikkaus Casino Tampere, Veikkaus’s second casino in Finland, will be built on the idea of working together, which is why various parties have already been involved in its design phase. Potential users of the casino have been extensively consulted, and customer and service paths are being developed in collaboration with the various partners.

Municipalities in Finland were asked to submit suggestions for the new casino’s site, and the on-going experience competition (in Finnish) invites everyone to be part of the creation of the most modern, cutting-edge and responsible casino in Europe. The competition is seeking completely new, imaginative experiences to be provided at the casino. How does a casino combine the latest ideas in service, interior design, design and technology? What’s the thing that makes people spontaneously exclaim WOW?

The casino, like the entire arena, will be a testament to collaborative activities. It will serve its customers seamlessly through its entire partner network. Casino Tampere will combine gaming with hotel and restaurant services as well as sporting and cultural events. Its location right in the heart of the city will encourage people to come to the venue, and the arena, home to two ice hockey teams, will also ensure that the casino guests can experience the exciting atmosphere live.

Your sofa at home can be beaten, but it takes skills and courage to do things in a new way. Consumer expectations are high and digital features will offer unprecedented ways to meet them. New identification methods, 5G, holograms, virtual and augmented reality and many other as yet unknown opportunities will lead the way to a whole new kind of customer and service experience. New technologies will also help to improve security and responsible implementation of all stages of service, which is particularly important when it comes to the gaming sector.

We will have various means to surprise even the most demanding customers, right from the moment they first think about going to the arena or an event.

Ari Tuuli, Project Manager, Casino Tampere, Veikkaus

Veikkaus is to open its second casino in Finland. Casino Tampere, which aims to be the most modern casino in Europe, will offer more than 100 slot machines, about a dozen table games, cash and tournament poker, sports games and Veikkaus’s other digital and mobile games. As with all gaming venues, Casino Tampere will admit customers who are 18 years and older.
