Neuchâtel in brief…

The picturesque lakeside town Neuchâtel is steeped in history, having celebrated its first millennium of existence in 2011. The city’s link to Swiss technology is unquestioned, being located at the heart of the Swiss Watchmaking industry and all of its major players. The EFTF in particular has well-established roots in the city, having been hosted in Neuchâtel 6 times previously.
