Parking and arriving

The exhibition site can easily be reached from the center of Tampere by bus. The bus stop is right next to the entrance of the exhibition.
The venue is located along Road 3 (E12), so it is easy to come to the exhibition area with your own car. Free remote parking at Lempäälä Ideapark increases parking space. If you come by car, turn off Road 3 at junction 42 and follow the Tampere Fair and Sport Center sign.

Lempäälä Ideapark is about 15 minutes from Tampere Fair and Sports Center. There is a free shuttle bus to and from KoneAgria. We recommend using the remote parking: it is free of charge and the shuttle bus brings the exhibition guests directly to the entrance at Ilmailunkatu. You can find the shuttle bus at the remote parking by the “Exhibition Transport” flag.
Parking at Tampere Fair and Sports Center
You can pay for parking at the exhibition center in different ways:
Purchase parking ticket with Moovy app (12€)
The Moovy app can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play. The application uses the GPS positioning of the phone to detect that the car is parked in the exhibition area. The price of parking with Moovy is 12 euros per day. The paid parking fee is shown from the application to the traffic controller when driving out of the parking area.
Please note! Due to Moovy’s normal hourly pricing for roadside parking in Tampere, the application gives a parking time of 2 hours when starting the parking at the exhibition site. However, this does not apply at the exhibition site, as you can park the car there for 8 euros during the same day as long as you want.
Purchase of parking ticket at the ticket office by the entrance (12 €)
A parking ticket can be purchased at the ticket office by the entrance with cash or by debit card. The ticket is shown to the traffic controller when driving out of the parking area.
If necessary, the parking fee can also be paid in cash directly to the traffic controller (12 € ) when driving out of the parking area, but for the sake of smooth traffic, we recommend that parking be paid in advance either with the Moovy application or at the ticket office by the entrance.
At the end of the exhibition day, the roundabout next to the nearby shopping center is easily congested. When driving home in the direction towards Helsinki, Turku or Jyväskylä, it’s better to leave the parking area to the left in the direction of the city center. From Ilmailunkatu via Sarankulmankatu to the right to Kolmionkatu and again to the right to Lahdenperänkatu and from there to the motorway in the direction towards Helsinki. When leaving, follow the road number signs for road number 3.
P2 is reserved for group buses along Ilmailunkatu. Group buses drive to the P2 area to leave passengers. The return journey starts from the same place.
Parking for disabled persons
Parking for disabled persons is free of charge and can be found near the main entrance.
