There are everything that we have imagined. It is old. But it looks ok and the staff is friendly. Satisfied.

Main conference center for UN and business occupants of Geneva. All is well. Minor problem is that there are not many restaurants and cafes nearby, so you end up eating in the conference center, which in case of big conferences can be crowded.

As its name implies, this is a conference centre. It is conveniently located near the UN and close to several other international organisations. There is absolutely no need to go here unless you are attending a conference! As far as conference centres goes, it has well equipped large conference rooms and a fresh and unusally designed interior. The areas available... More

The ICG, also known as Varembé Conference Center, is a building sitting very close to Place des Nations and several international organizations and missions. It is very well equipped, with a restaurant and a cafeteria. I suppose due to security reasons, the several conference rooms are not open at all to the outside, so you get the feeling that you...

Well, not a tourist spot but a business venue! As such it can be rented by organisations and with the UN so nearby, many international organisations use this venue. This is an area where many of the buildings have conference facilities, as with over 8000 conferences a year this is necessary. However, when I was asked to give a PP... More

Nice large hall, not enough sofas in the lounge for people waiting for their meetings. They used office rooms for the small meetings, which were too small. But the cafe was okay, the cafeteria food also decent enough. I liked the door to the toilets in the main hall, which were made to look like the surrounding walls

The building, which has recently been modernised, has basically no architectural charm, no view on the lake... but it is extremely well located: 2 minutes walk from the "Place des Nations" (UN Headquarters), not far from the airport, the highway and the main railway station. If UN and WTO conferences take place in their own premices, some important diplomatic conferences... More
