Lausanne Palace & Spa, Sunday 22 May 2016

The Léman International Fair will celebrate its 10th birthday by holding two fairs at two new locations in Lausanne this year. The first of these is scheduled to take place on 22 May at the 5-star Lausanne Palace & Spa, an ideal location for the  international and Swiss communities living along Lake Geneva or in the Canton of Vaud.

With an accent on learning in all its senses, this special birthday edition will offer something for all ages, and will focus on organizations that provide services like summer camps, wine courses, and wellbeing. Visitors will also have the opportunity to find out more about local resorts including hotels and golf centers as well as thermal baths. Entry to the fair is free and open to all.

Created 10 years ago by Léman Events Sarl as an event for Expats, the fair has now evolved into an occasion not just for Expats, but Locals and Swiss Residents too.  Whether you have only just arrived, or have lived here all your life, you can be sure of discovering something new at the Léman International Fair!

A key attraction of the Spring Fair will be the option to have FREE casual portrait photographs taken between 11h and 17h. Targeted at both adults and children, this service will be provided by the lifestyle and portrait photographer, Hannah Shan, who we featured on our website earlier this year. In addition, it will also be possible to request professional, high-quality business portraits for just Fr. 40.- (a 20% discount on the normal price), to use on your CV and online networking.  Don’t forget to dress smart if you are interested in this option!  

Another big attraction will be the FREE English book and DVD exchange, organized by The Scots Kirk Lausanne. This exchange  will include English fiction, children's books, DVD movies and music! Non-fiction reference books are welcome too but, for obvious reasons, please only consider bringing current business/technical/textbooks/etc. whose content is still useful in this decade! There will be no charge for books and DVDs you find at the Léman International Fair Book Exchange. So, don’t worry if you forget to bring your own used books or DVDs from home -  you can still take home new titles for free!  However, if you do wish to donate anything, all proceeds go to the current Scots Kirk Charity, Sethule Orphan's Trust.
