For the media and communication

Communication and marketing help to support and contribute to Vaasa's development and survival as a competitive, attractive, resident caring and customer-oriented place for everyone.

Communication of the City of Vaasa 

We provide information on city services, activities, plans and goals for residents, customers, the media, and other stakeholders. 

Through municipal marketing, we make Vaasa and its strengths known in Finland and abroad. We manage and co-ordinate the general marketing of the city and are responsible for the marketing material.
