Abundant sunshine, lush vegetation, enchanting panoramic views and a contrasting mountain-and-valley setting: Lugano makes a unique conference destination. The central location of the Lugano Convention Centre and many hotels means that participants can easily stroll over to the popular car-free city center and its many outdoor cafes and shops. Lugano comes as a revelation: Switzerland's third largest financial center is known as a sophisticated and efficient Swiss business city, also hosting two research universities and important cultural and biomedical institutions, and yet it has not forgotten how to enjoy the good things in life. Locals lead a distinctly Italian lifestyle, enjoying long summers and mild winters.
This quiet, compact little city of spacious parks lies on the shores of beautiful Lake Lugano, in an unspoiled landscape of lush hills and wild, remote valleys. Lugano captures both Switzerland's and Italy's best qualities and it guarantees a Mediterranean touch. Our catchword is "come for business, stay for lifestyle"!
