Convention Centre

Lugano’s elegant and modern Convention Centre is centrally located, close to the heart of the city’s financial and recreational facilities and right next to the splendid municipal park, Parco Ciani and the lakeshore. The centre is located within easy walking distance of many hotels, shops and attractions. Ideal  for  all kinds of events, it is equipped with the most modern technology and fully air-conditioned. An amphitheatre for 1,130 persons with a fixed stage, break-out rooms with dividing walls, a banquet room for 850 persons and a large exhibition area (1,350 + 830 m²) offer the ideal location for meetings, workshops, seminars, conventions, banquets, exhibitions and shows. About 250 parking spaces are available directly in front of the Convention Centre. One of the most appealing aspects of the Convention Centre Lugano is its uncluttered hallways, wide stairways and outside terraces, spacious yet people-friendly in scale and ideal for networking between sessions.

Technical equipment

The Convention Centre has a high-speed wireless internet connection, simultaneous translation systems and the latest technology for the audiovisual and IT systems in collaboration with our partners.
