General Information

Great Choice for Meetings, Incentives and Events

Switzerland is a great choice for corporate events, whether it is a product launch, a major international congress, or an intimate board meeting, as well as an incentive destination to fulfill the dreams of your incentive winners. With such a large choice of diverse destinations you are guaranteed to find the ideal venue and create the most memorable program by combining mountain villages with a resort or a typically charming Swiss city. Plenty of experienced people are ready to help organize your event. Even local governments are happy to personally welcome your delegates, perhaps even having a reception in the town hall!

Excellent and Diverse Suppliers

From cultural activities to sporting events or educational tours, Swiss suppliers deliver. They’ll create moments that are luxuriously understated (a candlelight cruise on a lake, bicycling along the cobbled lanes of a fairytale village), grandiose (a knighting ceremony in a medieval castle, sipping champagne atop a glacier), and ingenious (snow canoing on a glacier). Conferences held in the larger cities can use the surrounding countryside for excursions to mountain villages, vineyards, or train journeys into the Swiss Alps. The cities are large enough to have many sights to explore but small enough to get around easily. City tours, on foot, by bus, or tram, can give attendees a great feel for the area within a relatively short period of time. The cities are so diverse your group can visit a medieval clock tower, and then shop at world‑famous stores. Of course the cities are home to many varied museums, everything from world‑renowned works of art to transportation to watches. Consider a mouth‑watering visit to a chocolate factory to provide an enjoyable break from a day of meetings and seminars.

Swiss Scenery, Sports and Spas

Switzerland has the scenery for adventurous outdoor activities any time of the year. Whether it is a leisurely stroll through an alpine meadow, or a more vigorous hike, the magnificent Swiss Alps will leave lasting memories for your participants. Meetings and incentive groups can learn to work together in canoes as they compete along a course on a picturesque lake, or race against each other in individual kayaks. Boat cruises on emerald green lakes, hot air balloon rides through crystal clear blue skies, hitting golf balls off a mountainside, the choices are too numerous to list. Of course for winter sports, the choices are just as endless, with alpine skiing, tobogganing, and bobsled rides, and for those wanting to take things a bit easier, horse‑drawn sleigh rides, snowshoe walks, or dog‑sledding. With world‑class spas available you can plan a relaxing day for your delegates to unwind from an intensive few days of meetings. Choose one for your incentive winners to truly indulge in pampering themselves.
