Storico luogo di incontro, discussione e convivio, il Monte Verità vanta una lunga esperienza nella gestione di seminari e congressi residenziali di medie dimensioni (fino a 120 persone). Dal 1989 ospita il Centro Stefano Franscini (ETH Zurigo) che, a sua volta, attira ogni anno al Monte Verità diverse centinaia di ricercatori di punta provenienti da tutto il mondo.
Il centro congressuale Monte Verità si presenta come una sorta di campus comprensivo di albergo, sale per conferenze, ristorante e parco. Il tutto immerso in un capitolo affascinante e importante per la storia culturale europea del Novecento, quello della colonia vegetariana Monte Verità.
„I am writing to thank you for organizing a terrific conference, one of the best I have ever attended. The choice of topics and speakers, and the setting, were just spectacular. It is rare to attend a conference where literally every talk was stimulating and provocative. I learned a tremendous amount and had the opportunity to make connections with scientists I had not meet before. The meal-time and poster conversations provided a wonderful catalyst for new ideas for my own research."

"For the 49th meeting of the AGAGE network (Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment) the Monte Verità proved to be an ideal location. By its compromise of being relatively remote but also being near the town of Locarno and Ascona it provided the ideal setting for the conference. Participants only gave positive feedback about friendly staff and about the location. We were optimally supported by the local hosts also in terms of organizing the conference dinner, which consisted in an excursion and dinner on the Isole di Brissago. I can only recommend Monte Verità and would like to return for a conference."
Dr. Stefan Reimann, EMPA, 2014
"Monte Verità was a perfect place for our international workshop (OrgN2014). The beautiful location, delicious meals, and friendly and helpful staff created a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere that contributed to interesting and stimulating scientific discussions. A great conference venue that we can recommend to everybody."
Prof. Dr. Doris Rentsch, University of Bern (CH) and Prof. Dr. Susanne Schmidt, University of Queensland Brisbane (AUS), 2014
"We had only excellent feedback about the conference at the Monte Verità. The participants greatly enjoyed the conference, both the setting and the organization, and also the meals were great. Monte Verità is also giving conference organizers a lot of help, and so even as organizers, we could enjoy the conference and participate in the discussions following the talks, usually quite long into the night. The setting is fantastic, and we can only recommend it to anybody who would like to organize a scientific conference."
Prof. Dr. Martin Gander, University of Geneva, 2013
I organized a conference in July 2013 at the Monte Verita with 50 scientists from all over the world. The one week meeting was a success, thanks to the staff of the Monte Verita. The hotel, which is also the conference center in located on the hill of Ascona with an amazing view on the lake, only 10 minutes walk from the village. The service at the hotel was excellent, great food and very helpful staff. It is definitely one of the best place in Europe to organize a conference.

"As a member of the international network i-Rec (Information and Research for Reconstruction, the World Habitat Research Centre of the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland organized its 6th International Conference on "Sustainable Post-disaster Reconstruction: from Recovery to Risk Reduction" which was attended by about sixty participants from Switzerland, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, the United States, Canada, New Zeeland, Australia, India, China, Japan, Iran and Nepal.
All participants were absolutely thrilled by the splendid and inspiring venue and by the superb organizational support that was offered both before and during the conference. The conference rooms were ideal for holding plenary and parallel sessions as well as side events and evening programmes in a scientifically inspiring and yet relaxing atmosphere. The very friendly managed restaurant satisfying the complex dietary requirements of people from many different cultures fully satisfied all participants and contributed not marginally to establish good contacts, establish new partnerships and develop new project ideas. The excursion to the Brissago Island was an amazing experience that we would strongly recommend to everybody.
All of the above led many participants to assert that it was one of the best international conferences they ever attended!"
Prof. Jennifer Duyne, SUPSI, 2013
I have recently organized my fifth conference at Monte Verità. At each time I am amazed by the magic of the place. The view on the Lago Maggiore and the surrounding mountains, the park, the history of the place and the buildings they all convey a special energy and spirit that, together with the wonderful hospitality of the center, make each conferences such a unique experience. We enjoy science and have productive discussions in a intimate, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Something I recommend everyone to experience. Thank you Monte Verità!
Prof. Curzio Rüegg, University of Fribourg, 2013
"On the hills overlooking Ascona and Lake Maggiore, with nice accommodation, delicious food and smiley people to support us, our conference was a big success. We could fully concentrate on science, days and evenings, while enjoying the place.Thanks again"
