About Zurich

With its numerous event locations both big and small, Zürich provides the perfect framework for every kind of convention,
meeting and event. But the city on the Limmat river does not just have plenty to offer business guests; its location directly on the
lake, its attractive shopping facilities and its abundance of greenery make Zürich a great place to spend your leisure time, too.

Zürich is a business metropolis, international financial centre and melting pot of many different cultures. It is among the cities
with the best quality of living in the world, and offers art, culture, shopping and nature at the highest level. Zürich also appeals
as a result of its short distances and close proximity to the airport. All this makes the city an extremely attractive location for
conventions, conferences, business meetings and events of all kinds.
