Annual European Political Discourse in Turku

Europe Forum

The Europe Forum is Finland’s leading European political discussion platform and an annual political season opener held in Turku, where Finland’s role in Europe and the European Union is contemplated. Aboa has been involved in organising the Europe Forum since 2019. We have been closely involved in the development and expansion of the forum, which has become a significant citizen discussion event.

In 2023, the Europe Forum convened for the sixth time, bringing together nearly 800 decision-makers, experts, and citizens. Over the course of three days, 38 high-quality program sessions were executed with the participation of over 40 program organisers and 170 speakers. During the live broadcasts, there were nearly 2800 unique visitors throughout the event.

This is how it was done

  • In addition to on-site arrangements, Aboa Events has been responsible for the planning and execution of live streaming in collaboration with Rajulive.
    In 2022, we introduced simultaneous interpretation to the live stream.
  • Aboa Events has been part of the Europe Forum from the planning phase to post-event activities. Our responsibilities have included event production management, coordination and leading, program coordination, internal communication, as well as invitation and registration processes.
  • The event has been organised at several different locations in the center of Turku, including Hansakortteli, the Market Square, and the Turku City Theatre. Each year, the forum has attracted hundreds of speakers and been followed by thousands of visitors.
  • Aboa Events coordinates and collaborates with all the entities participating in the Europe Forum.

“Aboa Events has been an excellent partner. Every interaction with Aboa has meant smooth and seamless communication, making the organisation of a large conference considerably easier. The people at Aboa not only do their job with professionalism but also commit their hearts to the project, bringing enthusiasm and expertise to the table. I also appreciate how Aboa is always one step ahead in the development of the events industry. They consistently bring innovative ideas to the table, helping to advance our annual event. Through the collaboration with Aboa, I have been confident that the event will be successful, and people will enjoy it.”
