Lausanne Tourisme & Convention Bureau
Lausanne, the Olympic capital, is your destination for conventions, conferences, meetings and business travel. Compact and intimate, Lausanne is easily reached from all over Europe, being directly connected by train with Paris and situated just 40 minutes from the nearest international airport. Your guests will be immersed in a unique city, perfectly placed between Lake Geneva and the Alps, and where the worlds of sport, culture, technology, health research and innovation all meet. The Convention Office in Lausanne will work with you to organise part or all of a congress, conference, event or group activity. Using its contacts with service providers and suppliers, we will ensure that the logistics of your meeting tie in with official events and leisure activities. Your professional gatherings can be rounded off by a made-to-measure programme. Lausanne is situated as a point of departure for numerous excursions. The ascent to Glacier 3000 in a cable car with panoramic views, a tour of the great halls in the Château de Chillon and sampling the wines of Lavaux (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) in a vintner’s cellar are just some of the many attractions that can be tailored to the expectations of your business clients.
You will not only find in Lausanne very prestigious institutions such as the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV) or the Université de Lausanne (UNIL), but also the renowned International Olympic Committee and its museum. Besides, Lausanne has a strategic location since many excursions and activities take place in the city. Lausanne also enjoys a very large range of restaurants and cultural supply, which could be good incentives to convince new business clients to pass by.
