On 14 September 2023, the Embassy of Switzerland in the UK held the first edition of our Soirée Suisse at the Royal Academy of Arts.
The Soirée Suisse is the Embassy’s flagship annual event. We invite our key political, economic and cultural contacts in the UK for an evening celebrating a key aspect of Swiss culture.
In 2023 we welcomed around 300 guests to the Royal Academy of Arts, with a focus on showcasing the work of the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron, based on a unique exhibition of their work held at the Academy.
The event provided an opportunity to showcase Swiss excellence in a content-driven event to a high-level network of stakeholders from business, politics, government, academia and the arts.
Our event sponsors were given a strong, visible presence both at the event and in communications related to it, access to hundreds of key stakeholders at the event and invitations for their own selected guests to attend. We extend our thanks to Zurich Insurance for being the Gold Sponsor for the event this year and to all of our other sponsors for their support.
The Soirée Suisse is intended to raise the profile of Switzerland, the Embassy and our key partners in the United Kingdom and we look forward to working with our partners on future editions.
We are committed. We are connected. We are creative. #WeAreSwitzerland.
