Bad coffee is the worst possible start of any day, but that won´t happen here as the team at PM banquet & conference is well enlightened about the fact that gustative pleasure is triggering creativity whether it´s about those fresh croissants for the morning session or vividly sparkling champagne with creative nibbles to summarize a fruitful workshop.

Each and every client´s individual needs are taken into consideration as this is not just another conference center, rather a creative lounge with the ambitions and service of a top notch restaurant.

Sparse and light design in combination with the latest technology is there to inspire and let you focus on your goals. And when you need intellectual nourishment the kitchen brigade has a great experience on how to deliver food for thought or just downright decadent pleasure.
