Palexpo your exhibition centre in the heart of Europe

About us


Since 1981, Palexpo has been a driving force of innovation, creativity and inspiration, and every year the congress and exhibition centre plays host to around one hundred regional and international trade and consumer events: conferences, trade shows, events, exhibitions, general meetings, conventions, symposia, etc. Palexpo also devises and organises its own signature events, such as artgenève, artmonte-carlo, the Geneva Book Fair, the International Exhibition of Inventions Geneva, and Les Automnales.

As a unifying space where culture, economy, science, art, sport, multimedia and lifestyle come together, Palexpo offers a rich variety of events that embrace emerging trends. Strategically located in Geneva, a city full of advantages, Palexpo draws its uniqueness and strength from its multi-disciplinary teams who have perfect mastery of all the technical and organisational solutions needed to stage high-profile events.


Owned mainly by the State of Geneva, Palexpo is a tool that serves the community. Its mission is to create economic and media benefits for Geneva and the region at large and to promote Geneva’s economy with a focus on sustainable development. Palexpo does not receive any public subsidies.


As a source of inspiration and stimulation, Palexpo aspires to be and remain a place of sustainable solutions and experiences by offering a functional, welcoming environment where ideas can meet, flourish and transform into innovative solutions through the excellence of its skills and services. Its mission is based on a unifying approach that takes into account the expectations of all its stakeholders while adhering to the values of sustainable development by being mindful of environmental, social and societal aspects.


With over 40 years’ experience and the desire to blend together imagination and innovation, it is with passion that Palexpo organises and hosts events with the utmost respect for sustainable development. Our versatility and teamwork skills let us handle any type of situation, while our flexibility allows us to meet our clients’ demands.
