Weather & Dress
Temperatures average about 48º F (9º C) in March. Dress is business casual for the meeting. You should come prepared for the winter temperatures for transit between meeting site and your accommodations.
Standard currency is the Swiss Franc and can be obtained at ATMs. Euros are accepted in some place, and credit cards are widely accepted.
The electric current in Switzerland is 230 Volts AC, 50 cycles (continental European standard). Wall outlets are unique to Switzerland, however. There is a limited compatibility with other continental European plugs: the standard continental type hexagonal plug with two round pins will often work, and many hotels offer adapters.
