Finland’s leading industrial fair and Europe’s second largest subcontracting industry fair Subcontracting is facing new challenges. Tanja Järvensivu, Public Relations and Partnership Director of Tampere Trade Fairs Group, who has successfully piloted the event over the past few years, will take on new tasks and Project Manager Sami Siurola will take over the Subcontracting baton.

– Warm thanks to the customers, partners and professionals who participated in the implementation of the Subcontracting Fair. It has been a great pleasure and honour to be working on the Subcontracting Fair for more than 20 years and the last years as the event host. Next autumn, Subcontracting is already celebrating its 35th anniversary, so this is indeed a diamond industrial event in Tampere, and it will certainly continue to shine, says Tanja Järvensivu, Public Relations and Partnership Director.

During 2022, Siurola has acted as a project manager for the new DigITre event in the ICT sector, Konepaja (Machine Shop), Nordic Welding Expo and 3D & New Materials trio, and as a project coordinator for the Isot Koneet Keskustorilla (Big Machines on Central Square) event, which will be transferred from Järvensivu to Siurola as well.

– It is great to be able to jump into the lead of a major industry event. The boots are big but really inspiring – warm thanks to Tanja for her extensive and unique work for the event entity. From here, it is good to continue developing Subcontracting further, says Project Manager Sami Siurola.
