Palexpo is one of the largest international convention and exhibition venues in Switzerland.

Make your event come together with us and experience a bespoke service.  There is no limit to your imagination within our premises. We offer multipurpose event spaces and flexible facilities to foster your creativity and fulfil your every need in terms of set up and decoration.  We endeavour to meet and exceed your expectations from planning to delivery to make your event a success.

Our main congress centre is made up of 16 versatile meeting rooms that can accommodate from 20 to 2’500 delegates in a black and white style.  Another conference venue boasts 10 meeting spaces in black and metallic tones settings.  Both spaces have designer lightning and are adjacent to our restaurants and exhibition halls.

The setup of our halls is yet to take shape!

You  can  design  your  own  custom-fitted space  within  our  7  pillar-free  halls.  To get your event connected, high-tech audio- visual services as well as simultaneous translation are ubiquitously available within our premises thanks to Wi-Fi 6 and optical fibre network. Get the right atmosphere and enjoy the charm of our lovingly-restored 19th century Villa Sarasin located in a beautiful parkland, it is the ideal venue for  prestige  events  such  as seminars, receptions, birthday parties, wedding  celebrations,  cocktail  parties  getting your conference off to a flying start, or simply for business meetings requiring a sumptuous setting. Our in-house catering service is used to delight demanding customers’ palates. World cuisine together with world-class service and the picture is complete.

Palexpo benefits from excellent transport links

Palexpo is ideally located within walking distance from Cointrin International Airport and its railway station, 15 minutes away from the city centre by bus.  The newly opened Ibis Budget and Ibis Styles Geneva Palexpo Airport strengthens the onsite accommodation offer with 112 new one-star and 115 new three-star rooms. It brings the number of onsite hotel rooms up to 720 including the Starling 500 four-star rooms. It is no coincidence that we have been selected for the venue of the 2019 Convention on International Trade on Endangered Species and for the 3rd edition of the Laver Cup, or even as a regular venue for the European Lung Cancer Conference to be held in April 2020 amongst many others.

We are green!

At  Palexpo  we  are  environmentally  sensitive  and  that  is  why  your  ecological  footprint will be truly modest. Our sustainable development policy has been at the core of our business model for more than 20 years now.  Palexpo SA has obtained a second ISO 20121:2012 certification in 2019, a standard that recognises the responsible management systems we apply to our event organisation activities. This latest certification adds up to the standard obtained in December 2018 for the infrastructure and highlight Palexpo’s efforts to limit the environmental impact of its activities and to align with the UN 2030 Development Agenda. We recycle no less than 75% of our waste and buy our electricity from renewable sources.  We doubled our  energy  efficiency  in  one  decade  and  do  not  hide  our pride  about  that  feat!    Reduced CO2 footprint and local food are standard items in our packages and help you organise socially responsible events.
