Each year, the Evento Awards gala grants awards in various categories to Finland’s best event professionals. This time, Turku won fame and glory in two different categories. This was already the second time that Logomo, the newest and most accessible event and congress centre in Turku, received an award in the large event centre category. The grounds for the award underlined Logomo’s modern approach in which networks and partnerships provide the customer with the best end result possible.
Petri Hollmén, the founder and CEO of the Turku-based company Lyyti Oy, was recognised as one of the most influential people in the industry. Lyyti is a service founded in 2007, through which you can take care of event registrations, invitations and money transactions, for instance. Lyyti is a company known for its continuous drive to improve its services on the basis of the customers’ user experiences. Petri Hollmén says that the award made him speechless.
“The awards are granted by the industry’s top professionals and as an IT person, I never thought I’d get this award. The award is proof of the transformation that we have brought about in the operating models of the event industry. I’m truly proud of this as the award brings recognition for the entire company,” Hollmén notes in the bulletin he released.
In 2017 only, the Turku-based Lyyti was used in organising more than 65,000 events and managing infor-mation about more than 10,000,000 event participants around the world. Currently, Lyyti employs 40 peo-ple in Turku, Helsinki, Paris and Stockholm. Lyyti’s turnover for 2017 was nearly EUR 3.3 million and for three consecutive years, the company has been listed among Finland’s fastest growing technology com-panies on the Deloitte Tech Fast list.
