The museum, located in the Swiss town of Vevey in Lake Geneva, the birthplace of Nestlé, was built to mark the food giants 150th anniversary

The venue houses several event spaces for small and large meetings, seminars and evening receptions for up to 500 delegates.

Other facilities include: The Piazza, which provides a space for large private events accommodating up to 100; The Villa which has three meeting rooms which can hold 60 delegates each; The Mezzanine for cocktail or evening receptions for up to 70 people; and Café Henri which can host 62.

Delegates will also have the opportunity to follow an interactive trail to discover Nestlé products, with the option of an audio-guide for self-tours around the Museum.

Congress and meetings manager at Lausanne Tourism & Convention Bureau, Olivier Mathieu, said: "The nest is an excellent new addition to the region's cultural attractions as well as our meetings and events offering. We are certain that the nest will become a popular events space with delegates looking for more than a box-standard venue to help inspire and encourage creativity."

The opening of the Nestlé Museum follows the unveiling of Chaplin’s World Museum in the Lausanne region in April this year.
