The Centre

The Centre for Global Dialogue (the Centre) is Swiss Re's premier conference facility. It is a dedicated venue hosting industry-leading events on risk and insurance.

The Swiss Re Institute leverages the Centre to engage its key stakeholders in a personal dialogue and create lasting impressions.

Alongside conference facilities, the Centre features a business hotel for Swiss Re clients, stakeholders and staff; as well as fine dining facilities.

The Centre is located just outside of Zurich, in an idyllic position for views of the lake and mountains beyond.


Our minds still work when we are asleep. The Centre is an excellent place to work your mind and a perfect one to rest it.

After a day’s work guests can unwind in one of the 50 guest rooms and 3 suites. Each of these quiet, spacious rooms has an en-suite bathroom and a large writing desk. Disabled-access rooms are also available.

The Centre’s rooms and services feature: 

  • WiFi, Broadband and Swiss Re LAN connections in all rooms
  • Flat screen television
  • Mineral water in the room
  • Optional provision of hypoallergic bed linen on request
  • Laundry and ironing service, out-of-house dry cleaning
  • Corridor mini-bar with hot and cold beverages, as well as small snacks

The hotel rooms have been designed to high standards of comfort and functionality. Attention to detail and quality covers every aspect of the room. The bed linen is manufactured from a material compound sourced from sustainable forestry, achieving the smoothness of silk with the durability of cotton.
