Hall of Fame
The success story of Finland’s number one industrial trade fair event has already continued for 26 years, as the Subcontracting Trade Fair was first held in Tampere in 1988. The trade fair is popular first and foremost because of our cooperation partners, exhibitors and customers.
All of our nearly 1,000 exhibitors are important to us, but the strength of the trade fair lies in the 12 companies that have been part of the Subcontracting Trade Fair since the year it was established. These 12 companies are:
