CICG - International Conference Centre, Geneva

Conference Centre

Built by the FIPOI, the CICG was inaugurated in 1973. It hosts international conferences at a governmental level, on political, economic and technical topics, as well as all types of private conferences. Entirely renovated and extended between October 2004 and October 2005, with a larger entrance hall, a new multi-use area which is totally flexible and adaptable to your needs, the CICG can host your events in the best conditions possible.

For the 2004-2005 renovation, the FIPOI organised an architecture competition with 2 rounds, in order to find an architect who could carry out the work whilst respecting the original building. Anzevui et Deville was chosen for the architectural management of the project, whilst the architects Andrea Bassi and Pierre Bonnet were chosen to participate in the design of the main entrance of the CICG, in close collaboration with Anzevui and Deville. The conversion of the rooms, the Espace Dunant and the updating of the furniture was awarded to Group8.
