5 trains per hour make the 40-minute trip from Geneva Airport to Lausanne, the capital of Vaud. This accessibility is one of the many attractions of Switzerland’s fourth city. Lausanne is known for its innovation, particularly at the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne), where the new SwissTech Convention Center, located in the centre of the campus, uses a unique technology in Europe. In the city centre, the Palais de Beaulieu is also an important centre for conferences, trade fairs and events.
The Olympic capital, Lausanne is proud of its Musée Olympique, opened by the IOC on the shores of Lake Geneva. Fully renovated, the museum hosts themed events.
Lausanne has a long tradition of exceptional hotels, with an offering of over 5,000 beds. Attached to Lausanne Tourisme, the Bureau des Congrès conference service has a team of specialists ready to arrange all or part of any tailor-made event.
