Endless Possibilities

Together, the new Zurich Convention Center and the historic Tonhalle complex create a unique European venue with endless possibilities for whatever event you are planning.

International specialist conventions with several thousand participants? Meetings in rooms with natural light and marvellous views? Corporate conferences with star guests on the big stage? Captivating product presentations on the breathtaking terrace with a panoramic restaurant? In the new Zurich Convention Center, truly anything is possible – and carbon neutral to boot.

Following a comprehensive four-year renovation project costing around 175 million Swiss francs, guests are once again enjoying excellent service in the new and highly modern Zurich Convention Center and world-renowned Tonhalle.


5300 m² of event space, 4500 seats and more than 20 rooms and foyers: The new Zurich Convention Center is the largest venue of its kind in the centre of Zurich right by Lake Zurich. It sets new standards in terms of location, flexibility and individuality.

On request, almost all spaces and rooms can be made smaller or bigger, be partitioned or extended. All rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology. By subdividing the building and creating different event spaces, several events and breakout sessions can be held simultaneously.

Reliable and with an eye for detail. This is how we organise events. And it seems we’re doing quite well: the loyalty of our national and international customers is the best proof.
