Challenge the Present, Create the Future: The World Congress motto ties the entire program together. On various themed days, we question the status quo, get into the driver’s seat and work together to make a positive impact.

Nice to know

The World Congress will take place at Swiss Life Arena, which opened just last year. As the World Congress hub, the impressive multifunctional building offers everything we could wish for:

  • Easy to reach by public transportation
  • State-of-the-art media and event technology: top-notch tech, for example 360° LED technology for the opening ceremony and the gala evening
  • First-class infrastructure: in addition to the latest facilities, there is also a restaurant in the arena
  • 70,000 m2 for us to use for events, trainings, the tradeshow, and more
  • Impressive architecture: Designed by star architects Caruso St John Architects
  • Impressive spaces: High rooms and a stage for entertainers who will keep the energy going strong
  • Sustainability: The building is CO2-neutral
  • Swissness: Swiss Life Arena is the home of the ZSC Lions, the ice hockey club from Zurich
