Tips and advice:

  • See our available spaces through the Varaamo booking service. Meeting rooms at the Iso Omena Service Centre are also booked through Varaamo.
    • Once you have found a suitable space, please read its instructions carefully.
    • The Stage and Kohtaamo should be reserved by email well ahead of the intended event date. Our personnel will process these reservations on a case-by-case basis. They will, for example, check that the space is suitable for your event.
    • If you need, for example, loudspeakers or other equipment, please contact the Iso Omena Service Centre personnel in advance. Detailed instructions and contact information is available on the page of each space on the Varaamo website.
  • After you have booked a space, remember to advertise your event if it is open to everyone. Good channels for advertising include the event calendar on Espoo.fi and Facebook. See the instructions below to learn how to advertise your event through the Service Centre’s online channels.
