The Housing Fair is an annual national event in Finland featuring family houses. This year’s Housing Fair will be held in Hyvinkää, approx. 60 km north of Helsinki. The event will be organised by the Housing Fair Finland Co-op and the City of Hyvinkää and the exhibition will be open to the public for the whole month starting on 12 July.
The exhibition is an important promotion event for the Finnish housing industry and both demo houses builders, as well as building material suppliers receive a lot of attention from visitors and the mass media. Last year’s event, which was held in Tampere, attracted over 145,000 visitors.
