Among the typical activities of the congress acquisition, the candidacy is undoubtedly the most important and complex, as it involves multiple resources, deep research and analysis of requirements and procedures to put forward the bid, as well as a great networking activity, both local and international.

In this sense, Lugano Convention & Exhibition proposes itself as an active partner offering its professional services to scientific, cultural and business people, as well as any kind of private and public institution, aiming to bring a conference event to Lugano.



Among the main services that Lugano Convention & Exhibition makes available for the congress acquisition, we can mention:

  • Historical data research and analysis of past editions of specific events
  • Feasibility study: proposal of dates, venues, technical and logistic details, transport, hotels, etc.
  • Quotes regarding the City venues to be used
  • Contact with local service providers
  • Help to set up the general budget
