SwissTech Convention Center
Since April 2014, the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) has opened the SwissTech Convention Center, new ultramodern venue that is adaptable even in its smallest details, and particularly suitable for housing conferences, exhibitions and symposia of international scope.
SwissTech Convention Center has seating capacity for a total of 3,000 people and comprises a large 2,205-seat auditorium, a 795-seat balcony and fifteen or so break-out rooms on the ground floor, all of them fully modular.
With futuristic technology for events that are an effortless combination of flexibility, modularity, openness and simultaneity, this centre showcases what the convention industry demands today and tomorrow. It is endowed with revolutionary patented technology, allowing seating to be retracted at the touch of a button. Swallowed up by an intelligent floor, the seating thus gives way to a flat surface. SwissTech Convention Center is clearly the venue of choice for your forthcoming science congresses.
