We had the great three days in the first Subcontracting and AlihankintaHEAT virtual event in history. This confusing year 2020 will also remain in the story of Finland’s largest international trade fair as an exceptional chapter and the beginning of a new phase. In the Tampereen Messut Group, we have since March had to postpone or cancel all our major events due to the corona pandemic putting not only in the event industry but also the entire world on its knees. Eventually, the autumn’s traditional Subcontracting Fair, which has brought the industry together since 1988, was finally postponed by a year.
The first Subcontracting and AlihankintaHEAT virtual event in history, which took place completely online 8.-10.12. 2020, gathered a large crowd behind the screens. Almost 5000 viewers followed the live program broadcast from the Tampere Exhibition and Sports Centre and the average viewing time of the live program was almost 30 minutes. In total, the Subcontracting virtual fair was visited by 5000 visitors over the three days and a total of 830 meetings were arranged at the Brella networking service. The current state and future of the manufacturing industry as well as the Business from Data theme sparked discussion and interest throughout the event. The Subcontracting Fair and AlihankintaHEAT will be held the traditional way on 21.-23.9. 2021 at the Tampere Exhibition and Sports Centre. The theme remains Business from Data.
The largest subcontracting industry trade fair in the Nordic countries, Subcontracting 2020 and AlihankintaHEAT, were launched today for the first time fully virtually online. Until Thursday 10.12. players in the manufacturing industry will be pampered with live program and pre-recorded video broadcasts directly from the studio of the Tampere Exhibition and Sports Centre, as well as the opportunity to network with industry professionals and companies on the Brella networking platform. The virtual event is free of charge for visitors. The event website is open around the clock until 10.12. 11:59 pm and can be accessed at alihankintavirtual.fi.

"At the time of writing this text, the corona situation in Finland is getting worse and new restrictions are underway. There is also the light-deprived November bringing us down. In addition to the virus, we are fighting apathy and an uncertain future. These times emphasise the importance of strengthening the psychological feelings of safety and trust. Safety creates trust, and trust begets safety. And this emotional state is something we must look after in our society with special vigilance," writes Jarno Limnéll.
Latvia and Finland are aiming at being Champions in the area of open data. Indeed, Latvia is leading in the Baltic region while Finland is excelling in the Nordic region.
As public sector is creating large amounts of data from surveys, digital maps, and forestry related information, and as researchers supplement them with synthetic datasets, new data-drived solutions and business models are expected to emerge.
