MindTrek - what when where!?!

MindTrek is the leading annual Nordic digital media and business event since 1997, when it was first time arranged as Tampere Multimedia Festival. Ever since that MindTrek has also been one of the academic highlights of TAMK media students - an outstanding opportunity to learn from the top experts of the industry and network with Finnish and international professionals.

MindTrek has electrified Tampere autumn since 1997

This year MindTrek will come back to Finlayson October 3rd to 5th. To some events you have to buy a ticket, many events are free of charge. Below please find a summary of the events.
