The varied range of meeting and incentive facilities in the city and surrounding region will be further extended with countless new options.
Twelve new hotels will open in Zurich by 2021, the majority with more than 100 guest rooms:
Airport Hotels and The Circle
The largest new hotel to open in Zurich in the near future is the major construction project, The Circle. A convention center is being built at Zurich Airport with capacity for up to 1,500 delegates. Shopping facilities, 12 restaurants, and green outdoor areas will create a brand new services hub for Zurich in addition to the city center. In total, over 550 new guest rooms will be provided at the Hyatt Place and Hyatt Regency.
The Radisson Blu, until now the largest hotel located directly at the airport, is also to undergo renovation in the next few years. With 330 guest rooms and over 40 meeting rooms, it offers ideal options for combining hotel accommodation with meetings at The Circle directly at the airport.

The hotel in Rümlang has 170 rooms and the one at its Wallisellen site (expected to open in early 2019) 140 rooms.
