Tampere Events, an event application developed by Etteplan MORE, was used in the IAAF World U20 Championships 2018 for the first time. The application has since been developed further to suit the needs of people visiting mass events in Tampere region. Tampere Events provides the visitors with information about the schedule, arrival to the event and available services. The visitors can also pick their favorite events in the app and get notifications of upcoming events.
