promoter of tourism as well as meeting and congress activities in Espoo
The mission of Visit Espoo is to promote and develop tourism, as well as meeting and congress activities in Espoo. In tourism marketing, we collaborate with the municipalities of Kirkkonummi and Vihti, as well as the city of Kauniainen. Producing marketing services related to leisure, meeting, and congress tourism is our core competence. We actively seek different meeting and congress events as well. Developing the service offerings of the tourism area and attracting investments are also part of our team's tasks.
In marketing tourism destinations, products, and events, we work closely and actively with tourism businesses. Visit Espoo acts as the coordinator of the region's tourism entrepreneurs' cooperation and joint marketing network and helps companies grow sustainable businesses and enter international markets. Annual marketing activities for both leisure and meeting/congress tourism are planned and developed together with tourism businesses.
