Housing Fair 2014 Jyväskylä construction works progressing on schedule

The City of Jyväskylä hosts a housing fair at Äijälänranta, Jyväskylä on 11 July – 10 August, 2014. The fair area will have 37 lowrise houses, a kindergarten and one 13-storey tower block on the shore of Lake Jyväsjärvi.

What is the Housing Fair about?

The purpose of the annual Housing Fair event is to highlight new ideas and innovations in residential construction. In the Housing Fair area, the audience can familiarise themselves with the houses and gardens on the site and obtain information about housing, construction, gardens, energy matters and interior decoration.

Popular event for audience

The Housing Fair takes place every summer in a Finnish city. The Housing Fair usually attracts 150,000–200,000 visitors. Paying the admission fee allows visitors to visit the ready to move homes to see the facility solutions, lights, interior decoration, sauna and kitchen. Typically, the Housing Fair includes fully-equipped houses with decorated interiors, mainly built by families for themselves, as well as show homes from construction companies and apartment buildings. In Finland, the Housing Fair appeals to people who are planning to build a house or are interested in the latest energy solutions in home construction.

Houses for ordinary families

The Housing Fair area has been designed as a consistent unit with municipal engineering, green areas and lights. After the Housing Fair, the owners – ordinary families – will move into their houses. The Housing Fair is also an excellent opportunity for construction companies and interior decoration professionals to highlight their skill and their work.

Great opportunity for construction companies and interior decoration

The Housing Fair is where service providers and consumers meet. The Housing Fair introduces functional, sustainable solutions as well as examples of how the latest research in construction and housing can be applied in practice. The Housing Fair is not only a zeitgeist of contemporary Finnish housing design and construction, but also an innovator and trend-setter.

A mission to increase the public's awareness of housing

The mission of the Housing Fair Finland Co-operative Society, which was established in 1966, is to increase the public's awareness of housing and to improve the quality of housing design and construction. For this purpose, the Housing Fair has taken place almost every year since 1970 at different locations around Finland.

According to the Housing Fair Finland Co-operative Society the Housing Fair in Jyväskylä 2014 is the 45th event of its kind. 98% of Finland's adult population knows of the event.
