THE SWISSTECH CONVENTION CENTER
The SwissTech Convention Center (STCC) is located on the campus of EPFL/UNIL. Its futuristic design makes it a truly unique building in Europe. STCC is committed to sustainable development. By promoting renewable sources of energy, ensuring optimal management of waste disposal, and supporting eco-friendly mobility and human safety, the Convention Center intends to adopt policies that are respectful of humans and their environment.
Built in 2014, this unique convention centre is perfect for mid-size events. Its meeting rooms can be modulated to suit any desire. The 2205-seat plenary room can be divided into two big auditoria. The ground floor of the building can host six rooms for parallel sessions as well as an exhibition space, press rooms and many meeting rooms. The so-called Gala System handles the seats – actually making them disappear – to create a ballroom; a feature that will be put to good use for the Gala Dinner on Wednesday 3 July 2019.
Its advanced features make the STCC the perfect place to hold the entire WCSJ2019 conference under one roof. With its close proximity to Lausanne city centre and direct links with the M1 metro and bus lines, ease of access is guaranteed. A few tens of participants will even be able to find lodging right on the campus, very close to the STCC, and benefit from the lively campus environment in the evenings.
