Travel trade


The development of tourism in Helsinki is the responsibility of the Economic Development department’s Travel and Tourism unit. Its tasks include promoting tourism in the city and developing the operating environment in a sustainable and intelligent way in cooperation with the tourism ecosystem. It is also responsible for providing tourist information services, increasing international cooperation, and promoting tourism products, innovation, digitalisation and knowledge management.

A new city owned company, Helsinki Partners, is responsible for the tourism promotion and it provides information, news, advice and assistance to tour operators and travel agents.

This site compiles information for companies in the tourism and experience economy sectors and the media and other stakeholders. The site contains current travel and tourism news, material and statistics, information about the City of Helsinki’s travel and tourism development work and contact information for those working in the experience economy sector.
