Palexpo has been the home of INDEX for the past 11 editions, and has welcomed the event to Geneva since 1984. Its easy accessibility from cities around the world makes it a favourite destination for this three-yearly event.


For the twelfth consecutive occasion, INDEX™17 will take place in Geneva, from 4th – 7th  April 2017.

Its 108,000 m2 of modular and flexible exhibition space is situated at the heart of the major communication arteries leading to Geneva and within ten minutes' reach of the town centre and its 180 Swiss quality hotels. This affordable exhibition and conference destination boasts 1'500 hotel rooms within 1km of the complex, across all star categories, and 7,500 rooms within a 5km radius.

The Congress Centre, which reopened in March 2009 following a major refurbishment, offers excellent conference facilities to all participants. 20 meeting rooms of various sizes can accommodate from 20 to 2,500 delegates each in comfort and style.

With the city's international airport conveniently located next door to the exhibition centre, most European capitals are just a short flight away via more than 100 direct flights each week. The journey time from the airport to the exhibition centre is the shortest in Europe, a mere 10-15 minutes on foot, and five minutes by bus or taxi. An underground link to the airport railway station, which is also only ten minutes’ walk from the exhibition centre, also means Palexpo is easily accessible by rail.

Palexpo has its own direct access to Europe's north-south motorway system, has ample on-site parking facilities (4,500 places) and is served by frequent public transport links, making access to the city centre extremely simple to reach and a short bus or taxi ride away.
