Lausanne Montreux Congress (LMC) distils the expertise of a whole economic region to offer a comprehensive support and management service for conferences. In addition to this tailored support, LMC offers you a catalogue packed with opportunities, with four convention and conference centres, more than 120 hotel establishments totalling more than 6,000 rooms, as well as must-see locations for your activities and events within a breathtaking setting.
The presence in the Lake Geneva region of universities, of fifty or so international sports organisations and federations, as well as of major national and/or international companies contributes to the very promising development of business tourism. Many visitors travel here for a business appointment, a meeting, a conference, a seminar or a convention. These gatherings contribute substantially to the national and international influence as well as the economic development of the cities of Lausanne and Montreux. The notoriety of the universities, to only mention EPFL, UNIL, EHL, the Glion Institute of Higher Education, the Swiss Education Group, IMD or ECAL, give the region a privileged position, even an exceptional one with regards to the size of its population.
Indeed, as is the case for major sporting events, international competition is increasingly intense in the field of convention organisation. Countries, regions and many large cities have made the organisation of events and conventions part of their strategic priorities. These players commit considerable human and financial resources to attract such events.
The different players wish therefore to strengthen the positioning of the Vaud territory of the Lake Geneva region – known as the Vaud Lemanic Arc – as a destination unique in Switzerland by implementing a strategy to attract organisers of meetings and events linked in particular to new technologies, medicine, research, sustainable development, sport, music and hospitality; all this in order to increase the hosting of conventions and events that are favourable to the image and economy of Lausanne and Montreux.
