Events organized on a regular basis are general assemblies hosting up to 5,400 delegates in a cocktail-style layout, exhibitions during congresses, sporting events or even corporate receptions. Thanks to its versatility and modular features, Hall 7 can accommodate all sorts of original concepts and gives free rein to your imagination. It can be separated into several sections using black curtains. Spotbased lighting on each pillar plays with the colours and intensity of the light to create different athmospheres. Adjacent Hall 6 (722 sq.m.) presents an additional space to facilitate the flow of participants and offer them personalized reception.

  • Can I bring animals?

    Animals are permitted at Beaulieu under the current legislation of the Canton of Vaud. Having animals at certain events requires authorisation from the cantonal veterinary office. However, if authorisation for the event has been sought via the POCAMA portal, it is not necessary to make an additional application to the veterinary office. For more information, please contact Veterinary Services on 021 316 38 70.

  • When can the rooms be hired?

    The rooms can be hired from 7am until 11pm. However, it is possible to extend these hours for an additional cost.

  • Can I reserve parking spaces?

    Parking spaces can be reserved according to your needs and you may purchase group parking tickets at special rates for your participants. Should you choose to hire out the car park, access may be managed by a security system provided to you at an additional cost. However, please note that the car park can never be fully hired out, as some spaces must always remain available for people who have a permanent space.

  • I need to deliver equipment

    If you or your exhibitors have material to deliver on site prior to your event, please speak to your event manager who will confirm that items may be sent and stored in advance. This option is subject to the availability of storage areas on site and is only possible if receiving goods in advance does not incur costs.

    For deliveries that occur during the venue hire period, your event manager will be able to advise you on access and unloading areas depending on the space you are hiring. However, please be aware that only vehicles no higher than 1.9 meters can be parked in the underground car park. If your vehicle is larger than 1.9 meters, you must let us know. Depending on availability and other events, we can find you outdoor spaces.

  • Can we ship material in advance?

    Equipment may only be sent before the exhibition if prior consent is sought from the organiser. If arrangements have not been made in advance, merchandise cannot be received or stored.   Authorised deliveries are only possible if no costs are due on arrival.

    For deliveries and parking during the exhibition period, please refer to the instructions provided by the organiser.
