The Romandy Business Hours

A privileged setting for networking in the Romandy business world

The Romandy Business Hours represent an innovative new concept: events which are 100% network oriented. Focussed neither on a talk nor a conference, they unite influential actors from the Romandy business sector looking for greater visibility and business opportunities in a casual meeting context between 5pm and 7pm.

Held in key towns in French-speaking Switzerland (Lausanne, Geneva, Neuchatel and soon Fribourg and Saillon), each Romandy Business Hours event hosts the special guest(s), with whom you can chat freely.

Join the network

Participation in Business Hours is currently free. From 2017 onwards, events will become accessible by way of a membership. Each participant or participating company will be able to choose between different membership packages, each guaranteeing access to the network and events.
