Tampere is a dynamic and easily accessible city with a long industrial history. It is located in Pirkanmaa, Western Finland, only 180 km from the capital Helsinki.
At the heart of Tampere, located between Lake Näsijärvi and Lake Pyhäjärvi, is Tammerkoski, which connects the lakes and was used as an energy source for one of the country's first industrial plants, the Finlayson textile factory founded in 1820. In 1882, the first electric light was lit in Finlayson, making Tampere the fifth city in the world to have electric light. Almost 140 years later, Tampere is still the industrial core of Finland, and it has also grown into an important center for ICT companies.

MPD 2023 will be held at Tampere Hall. The venue is located at the heart of the city.
