Montreux

A town of 26,000 inhabitants situated between Lac Leman and the Swiss Alps, Montreux is a place of music and events.

Not only famous for its music festival in July, welcoming world-renowned jazz artists such as Nina Simone and Miles Davis, the city also gathers hundreds of policymakers in congresses and conferences.

Diplomats for the 1936’s Dardanelles Treaty, Heads of State and Government for the 2010’s Francophonie Summit or the 2014’s United Nation’s backed international Peace Conference « Geneva 2 » on the future of Syria, led by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon… There couldn’t be a better place to host the 8th edition of the World Policy Conference than the Fairmont Montreux Palace.
