Palexpo - Geneva’s Exhibition and Congress Centre
Strolling along the lake shore
Palexpo, Switzerland’s foremost Convention and Exhibition Centre, hosts a myriad of exhibitions, conferences, shows and competitions throughout the year. Steps from Palexpo, you’ll find the United Nations Headquarters, located in the Palais des Nations. Two thirds of UN system activities take place in Geneva - over 10,000 meetings and conferences annually. The UN headquarters are easily accessible by public transport from the airport – bus Nº28, alighting at “Appia”. Geneva is also known as the birthplace of the Red Cross Organization. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum invites its visitors to engage in an awareness-building experience. A permanent exhibition, “The Humanitarian Adventure”, offers a unique insight into humanitarian efforts – and a message of hope.
