Mediapolis is a centre of storytelling and digital industries

Mediapolis develops and makes it possible.

Located in the Tohloppi district of the City of Tampere, Mediapolis is a growing and developing centre and network of media companies and organisations. It has contacts with the media industry both in Finland and around the world.


The future of Mediapolis rests, first and foremost, on its strong organisations and the powerful network that they create. Collaboration and a strong shared ethos form a path that enables and generates collaborative projects and productions, strengthens existing contacts and creates new partnerships, promotes knowledge and competence sharing, brings about new visions and innovations introduced into production, and lays the groundwork for and creates new and growing business operations. Storytelling and digital industries form a fervently developing sector, where Mediapolis plays an active role.

More than square metres

Mediapolis was created in its current form in 2013. However, the idea of Mediapolis had already stirred a couple of years earlier, when the Finnish Broadcasting Company (Yle), which had operated in the premises for decades, revised its strategy. Yle wanted to increase co-operation with its partners, while it also wanted to get involved in promoting the vitality of creative industries as a whole. Furthermore, Yle announced that it would give up its ownership of the Tohloppi premises (32,000m2).

The premises were taken over by Technopolis Plc, a listed company specialising in real estate, facilities rental and services. Its promise of ‘more than square metres’ appealed to parties operating in the media sector, and when the City of Tampere also included Mediapolis as part of its own strategy, the undertaking found its bearings.
