Alpha to Zeta

The Palexpo congress centre now boasts an extension with 12 new rooms.


This new 1,600 m² multi-purpose space features 12 new conference rooms welcoming 20 to 300 people, as well as a modular space ranging from 210 to 540 m². Ideally located, these 12 new rooms can be accessed from Palexpo’s main corridor or from the adjacent congress centre. This will bring the total number of rooms and offices to 50.

This project was placed in the hands of Carouge-based architects Comte, Berthelot et Neto, highlighting modern, bright spaces. Palexpo’s sustainability and environmental commitments were integrated into every phase of the project, from its design to its construction.
