City Information

Lugano is located in the South of Switzerland and belongs to the Italian-speaking canton Ticino. The city lies on the northern side of Lake Lugano and is surrounded by a number of beautiful mountains. 

The town centre of Lugano is traffic-free and filled with a number of Italianate Lombardy style buildings, mediterranean squares and arcades, exclusive museums and parks with sub-tropical plants. Moreover, visitors can see the two closest mountains, Monte San Salvatore and Monte Bre, which open up an outstanding panorama of the town, Lake Lugano and the alpine scenary.

ENTER is the top event worldwide in the area of Information Technology in Tourism. It is exactly where one can find state of the art academic research but also industry knowledge and insights on trends and innovative applications that are driving change in Tourism.
