Conference and banquet facilities

Number one event venue in Eastern Finland
Newly renovated Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel is the most versatile event venue in Eastern Finland where you can organise quality exhibitions, meetings, seminars as well as stylish parties and celebrations. Kimmel offers modern-day Karelian luxury for up to a 1000 guests at the same time. The location nearby Sirkkala park, by river Pielisjoki brings event guests close to the North Karelian nature.
The new meeting spaces and Bistro Heili were finished on the 16th of September 2021. The creative space Urho will open it doors for public later in September 2021. Ballroom Sirkkala and the glass cabinets will open later in October 2021. You can already make reservations to the new spaces!
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 1000 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 new Bistro Heili including a bar and an evening restaurant Las Palmas which is open on Fridays and Saturdays. The new restaurant and the evening restaurant open in autumn 2021.
Uumen programmes offered by Sokos Hotels in North Karelia bring wellness to our event guests. Read more about forest yoga and other lovely Uumen services from here
