A prominent city on the world business stage, Geneva has several excellent conference centres to choose from. Here is our guide to three of the best. |
The Centre International de Conférences Genève
This place has space in abundance and is indeed the largest of its kind in Switzerland. Boasting a privileged location in the heart of the NGO district, this highly modern venue hosts conferences of up to 2,200 in a seated area. Cutting edge technology ensures the smooth running of business meetings that are held in spacious, minimalist and stylish rooms. We love the fact that the meeting rooms can be altered to suit the purpose and be split into conference rooms, office space, exhibition areas or catering venues.
Bus numbers 5 and 28 take you to this centre from the airport, but for quick, easy and hassle free access, book a Geneva airport taxi in advance.
Bringing business right up to date with its environmentally friendly powerhouse, known as Villa Sarasin, this complex is a wonderful example of modern architecture. Just being here offers a sense that you are positively making a difference. Two stunning congress centres, ideal for exhibitions, combined with the purpose built event venue lie at the heart of the complex, with the congress centre itself hosting 17 conference rooms. Recycling is a big part of the running of this site and there are green initiatives at hand in all aspects of the building.
If you are in the city centre you can take bus 5 or 28, or tram line Y to The Palexpo. From the airport it is only a 10-minute walk. Why walk though, when you can take a Geneva airport taxi and arrive in comfort and style?
Cité du Temps
This unique conference centre was once home to the main Swatch Group’s workshop in Geneva. Although the workshop no longer exists here there is, in its place, an orological exhibition that displays the history of Swatch products and evokes the idea of the relativity of time. For business people looking for a venue, the location of this centre is ideal. Right in the centre of the financial district, this place has plenty of space in its exhibition rooms on the second floor, all of which display work by various local artists. The bar and cocktail reception can accommodate 80 guests and the contemporary restaurant is renowned for offering a wonderful and somewhat exclusive gastronomic experience. Close to the city centre, this venue is within easy reach of the airport, so book a Geneva airport taxi and you will be at the Cité du Temps in no time at all.
