Sustainable Meetings & Events

Why dispose of aperitif leftovers when participants can take them home with them? From paperless registration forms to virtual trade fair apps - sustainable events not only protect the environment, they also leave a lasting impression on your guests.

Our network is your network

The Bern Convention Bureau has local roots and excellent networks. We are happy to use our partnerships with the Switzerland Convention and Incentive Bureau (SCIB), the cantonal umbrella marketing organisation Made in Bern, the University of Bern, the Präsidialdirektion Wirtschaftsraum Bern and numerous network groups with local players from the MICE and event sector to connect you with the right people in Bern.

"Together into the future"

New hotel rooms, new restaurants, the new festival hall: Bern has every reason to be (pre-)happy and is now even more so making common cause. Bern Welcome, Kursaal Bern and BERNEXPO are joining forces to network and utilise synergies as the Congress Hub Bern interest group. Are you an expert in your field and well connected in your industry? Have you been harbouring an idea for a congress for a long time or would you like to bring an existing event format to Bern? We can help you get the ball rolling.
