Zurich Convention Center becomes Institutional Partner

The Zurich Convention Center (“Kongresshaus Zurich”) will be the first Institutional Partner of the 2024 UCI Road and Para-cycling Road World Championships next September. Located close to the finish area on Sechseläutenplatz, the prestigious complex will be the headquarters of the 2024 UCI Road and Para-cycling Road World Championships in Zurich.

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) will hold both its annual Congress and its Gala at the Zurich Convention Center. In addition, the UCI and the Local Organising Committee (LOC) Zurich 2024 will use the various rooms for delegation briefings and other work connected to race operations, while the international media centre will also be set up within the convention center’s walls.

The Zurich Convention Center combines business, culture, art and gastronomy under one roof. The building, which also includes the Tonhalle, is an important example of Swiss architecture.

« The Zurich Convention Center is delighted to be the hub of the UCI Road and Para-cycling Road World Championships in Zurich», emphasised CEO Michel Loris-Melikoff. «The latest technology and a very dignified ambience, which skilfully combines tradition with modernity, enable us to host such important events competently and in the interests of the organisers.»

Gabriela Buchs, Co-director of the supporting events at the LOC Zurich 2024, added: «Thanks to its location on the lake basin, within walking distance of Sechseläutenplatz and the fan zones, as well as its state-of-the-art rooms and facilities, the Zurich Convention Center is the ideal venue for the headquarters of the UCI Road and Para-cycling Road World Championships. It also provides a stylish setting for the UCI Gala.»

The Zurich Convention Center also plays a pioneering role in terms of inclusion and sustainability. All the building’s event rooms and spaces are directly accessible by wheelchair. Events are climate-neutral, and the operating company relies on regional sources for its energy supply and food.
