Description

A small city with a reputation worldwide as a major international conference and exhibition center. Located in the heart of Europe, set in some of the most enchanting countryside ‑ the calm expanse of Lake Geneva, ringed by green hills and, soaring above, the majestic peaks of the French and Swiss Alps. Geneva embodies the best of both worlds, it is a smart, cosmopolitan city with all the advantages that this implies and, at the same time, it is a small, friendly resort. Fashionable hotels, chic restaurants and elegant shops jostle for a position along the flower‑decked lakefront which encircles the famous ”jet d’eau” fountain. Geneva hosts the European headquarters of the United Nations, it is the founding venue of the International Red Cross Movement and also the home of some two hundred world organizations. The charming Old Town bears witness to over two thousand years of history. The artistic and cultural life is particularly rich, including theaters, concerts, exhibitions, music festivals, opera house and museums covering a wide range of interests. Fabulous hotel developments mean Geneva can now offer 9,073 rooms in 115 hotels. Combine this with its wide range of congress infrastructure, and this delightful Swiss city has more to offer to the association market than ever before.
