Event Point's International MICE Correspondent Ramy Salameh collaborated with InternationalRail.com, who provided him an Interrail 'Global Pass' ticket to explore Switzerland, Austria and Slovakia helping him to discover some of Europe's hidden MICE gems. During his travels, he had the chance to visually showcase some amazing, quirky and inspiring venues/incentives. Through our 'Gallery section' take a tour of the places and activities that you may not have been aware of, but with the help of Event Point International may well plant the seeds of an idea that may take root for your next event.
Switzerland has been blessed to be the HQ of the two biggest sporting organisations in the world – the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). Both support their own museums, which provide Lausanne and Zurich with truly unique MICE venues offering inspirational USP's for planners with various rooms for hire and this can include post event tours of the museums, charting the history of the Olympics (www.olympics.org/museum) and FIFA World Cup (www.fifamuseum.com).
