Be inspired by Nature!

Switzerland brings ideas with a nature twist: mountains instead of meetings, wildlife instead of Wi-Fi, cabins instead of computers: follow the call in your heart – just like Alex, the hero of our new short film: www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AH9eAFeOsM

The great outdoors remains the constant fountain of inspiration for organisers and visitors alike. So we will take a look at a new urban retreat in Zurich, a new resort between heaven and earth, a floating venue on Lake Lucerne.  Switzerland has it all... and more.

Zurich- Hotel Atlantis, where city meets nature
A hotel with a sparkling history: Steve McQueen and boxing legend Muhammad Ali were guests. Freddie Mercury gave a private performance on the bar’s grand piano. The Atlantis hotel once radiated an atmosphere of splendour – yet it still remained fairly casual. Today, after an extensive renovation, the luxury Hotel Atlantis by Giardino , at the foot of the Uetliberg and not far from Zurich city centre, is sporting a brand new, contemporary look. The hotel has 95 bedrooms, meetings facilities, an indoor and outdoor pool, two restaurants and a spa. Atlantis is an urban retreat that promises the vibe of the city intimately accompanied by the rhythm of nature: the calm of the forest and pastoral chime of distant cowbells goes hand in hand with perhaps the most urban view of Switzerland’s Alpine metropolis. www.atlantisbygiardino.ch

Lucerne: Events on water
The newest motor vessel MS2017 on Lake Lucerne will enter public service in May 2017 and immediately redefine quality in Swiss passenger shipping. With its elegant appearance, spacious decks and innovative design features, this unique event boat will function as an attraction in its own right. Up to 400 people can go aboard and enjoy the special atmosphere on Lake Lucerne. Amidst the spectacular setting of the Swiss Alps, MS 2017 will help you create memorable moments for your event. www.lakelucerne.ch

Ticino: Up into the sky
Standing majestically on Monte Generoso’s rugged plateau is the new “Fiore di pietra“ (stone flower). The building was created by the famous architect Mario Botta and features picture windows that frame the breath-taking 360 degree panorama. Two restaurants flooded with light and a conference room with magnificent mountain views provide the ideal setting for fine dining and exceptional corporate events. www.montegenroso.ch

Meetings between heaven and earth – New Bürgenstock Resort
Take your meetings to the next level: Opening this summer, the new Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne will offer 383 rooms in 3 different hotels, 12 restaurants and bars, one of the largest spa in Switzerland – an unprecedented 10.000 m² Bürgenstock Alpine Spa - and 31 meeting rooms with capacities of up to 850 people, all set in a breathtaking mountain landscape. Central Switzerland is witnessing the emergence of a premier resort – the Bürgenstock Resort, perched 500 metres above Lake Lucerne. The Resort is easy to reach from the city of Lucerne by boat or by car; this resort will set new standards in Switzerland. www.buergenstock.ch
