The Kallio-Kuninkala course centre is located nearby the shores of Lake Tuusulanjärvi in the town of Järvenpää, Finland. It is 35 km from the capital Helsinki. The main building is an old manor house. The barn is converted into a concert hall/studio. There are also other smaller buildings around the main house in the same garden area. The bigger events of the conference will happen in the concert hall of the barn and the smaller presentations and workshops in the other rooms. The houses serve also as accommodation.

The venue is located in the countryside, so the nearest shops and services are in Järvenpää 3,5 km away.
