More than 100 event professionals from eight different countries headed to Switzerland to compete in the annual Switzerland Meeting Trophy challenge from 2-5 July.

National teams representing Great Britain, Belgium, Russia France, Germany, the Netherlands, North America, and the Nordic countries took part, with Russia taking the title.

The trip started with a tour of Zurich, before delegates travelled by train to Lucerne for a two-night stay. On the Saturday (4 July) the teams travelled by car to Bern, with a stop in Emmental, where they enjoyed a fondue reception and a cheese-rolling competition.  

In every area, the teams were met with quizzes on the local area, and took part in challenges including pedalo races, tight-rope walking and chocolate tasting.

Team GB included representatives from seven UK agencies, including Banks Sadler, The Turner Agency, Helms Briscoe and CL Venues.
