Founded in 1920 with the construction of its first hall, the Beaulieu site shares a century of history with citizens of Lausanne and Vaud. Central to the heritage of French-speaking Switzerland, it is home to the magnificent Théâtre de Beaulieu and has hosted the legendary fair Comptoir Suisse for many years.
Changes to the event industry have led the site to review its strategy. A portion of its spaces are gradually being taken on by permanent tenants and co-owners. As such, the Beaulieu site is now home to a number of different stakeholders. Of particular note are the Haute Ecole de la Santé La Source, which has been hiring new premises since September 2018, and the famous Béjart Ballet Lausanne (BBL), which has been based on the site since 2005 and now owns its building. In autumn 2021, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will set up its new international head office on the site.
