"With this announcement we are excited to share the news of our branching out into the digital experience space, an extension of our commitment to strategically develop smart city solutions. We will bring together event stakeholders into one platform and harness the power of AI to create new value for all parties in the ecosystem, transforming the event experience, as we know it today.

“When looking at what a world class facility this will be, becoming the naming rights partner was a perfect match with the UROS brand. The team behind the arena project shares our vision and ambition to challenge the status quo, and we couldn’t be happier to work together going forward”, Raatikainen continues.

The partnership is a unique fit for what the parties believe will propel the event business into a new era of digitalisation and will be the greatest arena in Europe. Solutions and services developed by UROS will enable arena stakeholders and guests of the venue to create and enjoy completely new types of experiences.

“The best partners are those who can add value to our visitors. In addition to the naming rights deal, we are looking forward to working with UROS on a digital platform that will bring together all the services related to the arena experience”, said Marko Hurme, CEO for the arena.

“There is demand for a versatile arena in our modern world; a world in which people are choosing experiences and services over possessions. Even in the digital age, people want to meet each other and experience things together. Through the value created by teaming up with UROS, our arena partners will be able to build a more intense and deeply rooted connection with arena visitors, and bring fan engagement to a new level. It’s really all about the fans”, Hurme adds.

UROS LIVE will be the first downtown arena in Europe, and will significantly enhance the attractiveness of the City of Tampere and the surrounding Pirkanmaa region.

"The thriving and progressive future cities will provide services that are digital, user-friendly, as well as end-user-driven. These are also the key drivers of the City of Tampere, and we will take one-step closer to making them real today when our Arena forms a partnership with one of the forefront companies of the IoT industry in Finland, UROS Group. The new arena UROS LIVE is a significant milestone to the City of Tampere and our citizens. It enhances our means to host and organize major events all year round. Tampere works toward becoming the leading city of attractions, events, and amusement in the Nordics", emphasizes the Mayor of the City of Tampere Lauri Lyly.

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
