Lugano Region MICE Department
Organizing an event in Lugano is all about making connections, meeting the experts who understand the field of activity and finding all the advantages that a compactsize destination can offer to any delegate. Its accessibility (a crossroads between the cities of Milan and Zurich), its well-maintained infrastructure in terms of hotels, venues and convention centre, as well as the professionalism of our multilingual suppliers, make Lugano a perfect destination for national and international meetings.
Art de vivre
The region stands for a variety of natural and cultural attractions blessed by the typical Mediterranean atmosphere that characterizes Ticino internationally. Visitors can appreciate the quality of life, not least the great food. It’s possible to choose from hundreds of restaurants and enjoy top quality on-site catering. The city has also preserved its local culture, so delegates will find Swiss quality and hospitality in an “boutique” town.
Venues for congresses and events
Located two steps away from many hotels, shops and attractions, with an amphitheater for 1,130 delegates, Lugano’s Convention Centre is the ideal venue for congresses and events. 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 Centre is the cultural centre, LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura; its various multi-purpose rooms are designed and equipped to host seminars, conferences, outstanding corporate and exclusive 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 event 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 (budget to luxury hotels as well as guest houses).
Tailor-made social programmes
Lugano Region can help you plan original social programmes, such as local excursions and gala dinners and more, assuring an unforgettable experience to all delegates.
