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.
