The Thief, Oslo, Norway
The addition of a sleek, stylish spa in January this year, connected to The Thief hotel via an underground walkway, offers guests the opportunity to swim by candlelight under a starlit sky – the roof of the spa is fashioned after the Nordic sky.

ME Ibiza and ME Mallorca
The ME brand is bringing its brand of cool to the Balearics, and if the bars at the other ME hotels are anything to go by, you won’t have to leave the hotel to find the best place to party. And for those looking to combine a meeting with the fun, the ME Mallorca offers the 125sqm Aura Meeting Room.

Swiss Tech Convention Centre, Lausanne
Located on the campus of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, the Swiss Tech Convention Centre opened in April and has a 3,000-seat ampitheatre that can be automatically transformed into a number of different configurations in 15 minutes at the push of a button. The system can also be used to create halls with capacities for group sizes of between 330 and 3,000.
