Lugano Region MICE Department
Its ideal location, a crossroads between the cities of Milan and Zurich, first-class transport connections and modern infrastructure, make Lugano Region a favorite destination for business travelers, meetings, congresses and fairs. With the Convention Center, located in the heart of the city, the region stands for versatility and professionalism, offering a variety of natural and cultural attractions in a Mediterranean atmosphere.
With its easy layout, the city has a wide variety of sights, cultural attractions and unique experiences to offer. Lugano, the largest city in the Canton of Ticino, has a lonstanding tradition as a venue for congresses and conventions in the city center as well as in the surrounding region. The destination offers the ideal setting for any kind of event: its magnificent location on the lake and the nearby peaks of the mountains offer the ideal starting point for exciting social programmes and team events.
A hub for congresses and conventions
Located two steps away from many hotels, shops and attractions, with an amphitheater for 1,130 delegates, Lugano’s Convention Center is the ideal venue for events and performances. Some of its most appealing aspects are its uncluttered hallways, wide stairways and outside terraces. Most of the available indoor spaces have natural light, high-ceilings and are right next to the beautiful municipal park, Parco Ciani. On the other side of town from the Convention Center is the city cultural center, LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura; its various multi-pur-pose rooms which meet the multi-function-ality criteria, are designed and equipped to host meetings, conferences and outstanding private events.
The impressive meetings facilities located in the region, from economy to luxury, offer delegates the very best in comfort and amenities, from flexible work spaces (breakout rooms, plenary auditoriums, amphitheaters and exhibition halls) to modern technology, from a constantly updated catering offer to a wide range of high-quality accommodation (private hotels, budget hotels and guest houses).
Tailor-made social programmes
Lugano Region offers hundreds of truly original social programmes, such as Gala Dinners at a prestigious venue or a soirée themed according to a specific activity, assuring an unforgettable experience to all delegates. City tours, treasure hunts, sporty, culinary, creative or outdoor activities: thanks to the wide range of out-of-the-ordi-nary group experiences, the region offers the perfect activity for every event.
