Basic courses, summits, congresses or retreats: no Alpine setting is more ideal for meetings than Valais – away from the  hustle and bustle of everyday life and (via the Lötschberg tunnel) closer than ever.

Amid a landscape of fascinating contrasts between charming valleys and snow-clad peaks rising above 4,000 meters, our destination offers infrastructure and services that make for harmony between work and pleasure: after workshops, participants can enjoy hiking through vineyards or cheesetasting in the Ice Pavilion. Chalets offer traditional ambience with cutting-edge IT facilities, and there are locations like the Matterhorn glacier paradise mountaineers’ lodge with Valais’ high-est seminar room (3,883 meters above sea level)

Typical, rustic Valais houses, chalets and hotels lend an authentic charm to the  villages in the valley and the three car-free resorts in the Aletsch Arena. You’Il have a fabulous view of the 23 km long Aletsch glacier from the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch.

The industrial town of Visp is experiencing a boom since the opening of the Lötschberg Base Tunnel and with its Congress Center La Poste, today comprises a delightful little culture and congress center.

At a crossroads between France and Italy, the Martigny Region and Pays du St-Bernard draw countless visitors thanks to superb cultural attractions, a sunny and mild climate and a wide range of leisure activities.

Located in the heart of the famous “4 Valleys”, Nendaz showcases magnificent views of the Alps from its mountain plateau high above the River Rhône. All kinds of activities can be organised for groups and companies, from ski trips, snowshoeing tours and guided hikes to experiences of traditional local culture – such as a class in learning to play the alphorn.

A day of relaxation or a day of discovery, a journey, team-building event or seminar: whatever your plans, the Swiss Discovery team will create a tailor-made programme for you in the Alps. Any number of participants is possible: from one individual or a small group to an international gathering of staff from a multinational.

The almost magical power of the mountains is omnipresent in Zermatt; opening the doors of the mind to creative ideas. Hotels with modern seminar infrastructures provide great support in this field and are making Zermatt an enchanting spot.

Equally as promising are seminars and meetings at the largest thermal spas and wellness resort Leukerbad in the Alps. With the cordial service and perfectly equipped meeting rooms of the local hotels, you set sail towards successful seminars and relax in the mean-time in the hot thermal alpine pools.

Particularly popular with seminar guests  is the sun-blessed Crans-Montana plateau. With flexible halls that seat as many as 2,000 guests, this golf paradise is one of the biggest seminar and congress centers in the Swiss Alps.

Broaden your horizons with a stay at Verbier – Val de Bagnes – La Tzoumaz. With its wide range of activities and breathtaking panorama, this multi-faceted region is an inspiration to sports professionals, nature lovers and lovers of fine food alike.

Champéry is a typical Valais mountain  village, in a gorgeous setting dominated by the summits of the Dents du Midi and can accommodate groups of 20 to 800 people. It is located below the world’s largest skiing and mountain biking area, the Portes-du-Soleil in the Mont Blanc region.

Valais is home to a wide diversity of congress and convention destinations. Whether ski resort, hiking centre, golfing mecca, wellness oasis or city of culture: between the Rhône Glacier and Lake Geneva, ultra-modern locations and a wide range of activities await groups looking to combine productive work with stimulating entertainment.
