Future plans and facilities
The development of the city of Lausanne entails the regular renewal of its infrastructures and numerous construction projects. Following large-scale redevelopment in the Flon, a town-centre district that has undergone a complete rethink in recent years, numerous projects are in the course of implementation to ensure that the hospitality facilities of the Olympic Capital are continually optimised.
Swiss Tech Convention Center
In 2013 the Lausanne Federal Institute of Technology will open the first fully automated convention centre. With futuristic technology for events that are an effortless combination of flexibility, modularity, openness and simultaneity, this centre showcases what the convention industry is seeking for its future.
The "Beaulieu 2020" project comprises two parts: the upgrading of property assets and the revitalisation of commercial activity, thanks in particular to the purchase of the Beaulieu SA operating company by MCH Group, the leading Swiss company in the marketing of events, fairs and trade shows. The first stage of the refurbishment having been completed, all the halls will be revamped and a hotel will be built at the heart of the site.

With its project for a living museum on the theme of water, AquaEcopôle will open up the northern entrance into Lausanne with a spectacular construction. Generating national, or indeed international, prestige for the whole region, the two superior buildings will house the themed museum, a 131-room hotel, a restaurant, a medical centre, some local shops and a covered communal area.
Work in progress
Cantonal Museum of Fine Arts
The project for the new Cantonal Museum of Fine Arts and a museum and cultural hub on the site of the Halle CFF (train station) in Lausanne offers a unique opportunity for the city of Lausanne and the canton, in partnership with the National Railway, to design a new quarter dedicated to the arts over an area in excess of 22'000m2, in conjunction with the development of the station and the railway.
