Meetings and events

Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel is the most versatile event venue in Eastern Finland where you can organise quality exhibitions, meetings, seminars, weddings as well as stylish parties and celebrations.

Number one event venue in Eastern Finland

Kimmel offers modern-day Karelian luxury for up to a 900 guests at the same time. The location nearby Sirkkala park, by river Pielisjoki brings event guests close to the North Karelian nature.

Versatile spaces from glass cabinets to the centre stage fit for a car show

Kimmel enables different events hosted with North Karelian hospitality! Our smallest spaces are sympathetic glass cabinets which are located next to Bistro Heili. The former hotel suite is transformed into a creative space called Urho including a sauna as well as a hotel room dedicated for the host. Our new meeting equipment in our glass cabinets and creative space enable good quality remote meetings for smaller groups.

The hotel's meeting wing has eight meeting spaces which can be divided into smaller spaces or into a one large meeting space for up to 600 people. The main event space is Sirkkala ballroom which overlooks river Pielisjoki. Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel also enables events for up to a 900 people when combining all the event spaces.

Our biggest event spaces have cameras which enable streaming to other spaces in Kimmel or with a hybrid model to other locations in Finland. Some of our meeting spaces have walls which open up so you can also arrange a car show within our biggest event space.

The hotel is completed with a Bistro Heili including a bar and an evening restaurant Las Palmas which is open on Fridays and Saturdays.
