Switzerland's ten biggest and best-equipped congress centres together form the Swiss Convention Centres (SCC) alliance. The congress centres founded this alliance with the aim of jointly positioning themselves on the international stage. The Congress Center Basel (CCB) has been an SCC member right from the very start.
The fact that the SCC is now a familiar name for contacts in the sector is due not least to its regular presence at the industry events IMEX in Frankfurt and IBTM in Barcelona. The key role in the SCC's marketing, however, is played by the annual client event which is staged at different locations. In the course of this evening event, Switzerland and its advantages as a congress destination are presented to the most important associations on their home territory.
On 20 September 2017, the SCC event was staged in London. Invitations to the dinner had been sent to key clients from various associations based in the English metropolis. Also involved was Livio Goetz, from the Switzerland Convention & Incentive Bureau (SCIB) in London, who provided the SCC with vigorous support in the capital city.
The legendary Private Dining Club of Swiss chef Anton Mosimann will doubtless stick in the participants' minds as an exclusive location for a long time to come. The outstanding cuisine certainly lived up to its reputation. Mosimann has been running the famous "Mosimann’s" in London since 1988, counting not only numerous heads of state and international stars among its regular guests but also members of the royal family.
"Our event is always greatly appreciated by the clients, as well as by the individual SCC members. This year too, those present took the opportunity to forge and foster valuable contacts in this exclusive setting", comments Simone Rem, who holds the post of Coordinator Swiss Convention Centres, as she took a look back at this stylishly elegant and convivial evening.
