About Messe Zürich

Situated in the heart of a vibrant district, Messe Zürich is the ideal venue for trade fairs, conferences and meetings. This modern location, which belongs to the internationally leading live-marketing company MCH Group, offers both a flexible range of halls and versatile seminar rooms. Other attractive venues are also available in the immediate vicinity in Zurich’s Oerlikon district. These include Theater 11, where world-class shows and musicals are staged, and the Hallenstadion Zurich, which hosts cultural and sporting events and regularly teams up with us to this end. Together with Zurich Tourism as a third partner, we have set up the Arena Convention Expo (ACE) to further this cooperation and are able to offer almost unlimited capacity for major events.

Zurich is Switzerland’s prime business metropolis, which makes it an attractive event destination. This is why we are delighted to have such a flexible event venue in this city on the River Limmat.
