Hosting events in the time of Coronavirus
Following the provisions issued by the authorities, we invite our users to consult the updated information and recommendations on the Canton's Public Health Division website as well as the Federal Office of Public Health website.
Lugano Eventi is the official platform that shows the complete list of events taking place in Lugano. It is constantly updated to inform the public and professionals about potential changes of the event schedule.
New space layout
In compliance with National healthcare measures and safety distance ordinances, Palazzo dei Congressi has reviewed the capacity of its rooms and atria to be able to safely welcome its guests. For seminars, meetings, training courses and exams we guarantee a minimum space of 4 square metres per person in well-ventilated and disinfected large rooms.
We provide the following items in each room:
- signs with indications about the maximum room capacity and the safety requirements
- an automatic hand sanitiser dispenser
- a stand provided with latex glove boxes, disposable paper, disinfectant liquid for surfaces as well as for hands.
Events in digital format
Due to the current ban on major events, the occurrence of major size or international events is uncertain. When in doubt, we may decide to cancel or postpone them. Organisers can adopt new solutions, like live video streaming: thanks to referenced technical partners and an ideal location, broadcasting online your event to a large audience will be a smooth and easy process. Here are some examples.
