Known as the Swiss Riviera thanks to its mild microclimate and picturesque location on Lake Geneva, Montreux serves up some of the region’s quirkier venues. Fancy banqueting in a medieval castle? Château de Chillon comes complete with a dungeon for after-dinner dancing. Or a walking tour and tastings at Lavaux’s ancient terraced UNESCO world heritage vineyards? For more straight-up conferencing, the state-of-the-art Montreux Music and Convention Centre can hold large groups, with stacks of hotel accommodation nearby. The resort-like feel and manageable size suit convention delegates – most of the venues are located within walking distance of each other, though cycling is another popular way to get around, and the lake itself is just an hour away from Geneva International Airport. With over 40 years’ experience in MICE, the Montreux Riviera Convention Bureau offers valuable support.
