Welcome to the new website dedicated to Swiss MICE destinations and your exclusive resource for professional conferences in Switzerland.

Planet Paradise, SWITZERLAND!

With the advent of the Internet and the possibility to be instantly in touch with anyone, anywhere in the world, it appeared that face-to-face meetings were doomed. In the meantime, burgeoning social media has exacerbated the situation, and one is indeed inclined to believe that all human interactions will only exist in a virtual reality. That has not proved to be true. All that technology is allowing us these days is giving us options for ‘setting the stage in a virtual environment’, for the players to eventually play-out their parts with real human interaction on a physical stage.

Having set the virtual stage and established the need to physically meet, the only question that needs to be answered is where this meeting should occur. The answer seems obvious: where else but in Switzerland? Renowned for its political stability, for its location at the heart of Europe, midway between America, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, and consistently ranked as a leading location, why would one wish to meet anywhere else? Switzerland features a wide variety of high-profile conference and congress venues with state-of-the- art facilities and of which are easily accessible.

Over and above all this, Switzerland is the proud host of two top world-ranked universities, the Federal Institutes of Technology at Zurich and Lausanne which makes Switzerland a powerhouse for European science. They alone count more than 130 nationalities working on vibrant campuses that turn out more than 20 start-ups a year. Wherever you choose to host your congress in Switzerland, the mix of natural beauty and our positioning as a dynamic crossroads at the heart of Europe are a natural fit for a successful and memorable event, and I sincerely hope we can welcome you here in the very near future.

We also invite you to browse the unique Conferences Agenda and inform yourself even more precisely of all professional conferences organized in Switzerland. That is the largest and only Swiss platform that provides data on any and all conferences, congresses and symposiums and is for free thanks to our non-profit strategy.

As you can see, not only does Switzerland continue to grow in attractivity as a MICE destination, but we too are making every effort to enhance this location and make it more accessible and interesting for those who are yet to discover the real advantages of holding conferences and meetings in Switzerland.
