Swiss HQ Club

Building relationships and creating value for regional and global Headquarters

About the Swiss HQ club

The "Swiss HQ Club" is an exclusive platform enabling headquarters with a strong footprint in Switzerland and a global reach to network and keep up with developments. The club has been in existence for nearly 10 years, and we are proud to serve over 400 members in the Romandie region and the Greater Zurich Area (GZA).

Our subject matter experts and the lively peer discussions provide club members with insights into the finance, tax, legal, supply chain and HR topics and the latest Swiss and global developments. We facilitate debate with those who have common objectives, challenges and visions.

What members are saying about the club

Swiss HQ Romandie Club

The Lake Geneva region's history is closely bound up with its openness to the rest of the world. Here Swiss and foreign multinational companies have found the ideal environment to build their headquarters, and have contributed to the development of the region and the country.

With our Romandie Club we aim to respond to the needs of leaders in regional or global headquarters by organising a series of 9 roundtables on relevant topics and two social and networking events in January and June in surprising venues. In these challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are running our meetings virtually. On a regular basis, members are informed about our upcoming events and receive a personal invitation.

We are open to welcoming new HQ Romandie Club members, so please feel free to share this link with your colleagues and peers.
Sincerely yours

Swiss HQ GZA Club

The Greater Zurich Area – reaching from the commercial capital to neighbouring cantons such as Schaffhausen and Zug – is one of Europe's strongest economic regions. With our GZA Club we aim to serve you and your needs with quarterly meetings on timely, relevant developments and possible thought-provoking approaches. The meetings have traditionally been dinners in an informal setting in downtown Zurich, but recently have been held as webinars because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prior to each event, a personal invitation will be sent to you. We are open to welcoming new GZA Club members, so please feel free to share this link with your colleagues and peers.

Sincerely yours
