The Division of Conference Management manages 30 rooms in the Palais des Nations at Geneva, plus two rooms in the recently restored Palais Wilson, where the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights is located. The rooms, which can accommodate from 12 to 1,939 delegates, are complemented by additional office space close to the meeting areas.
Conference rooms are primarily allocated to meetings which are part of the United Nations calendar as approved by the General Assembly.
Twenty-three rooms are equipped for simultaneous interpretation in the six official languages of the United Nations, and some of them offer the possibility of interpretation in other additional languages. Other features, such as sound recording or automatic sound amplification, are available in several rooms. Most of the conference rooms are equipped with Internet connection, electronic presentation, slide show, and video facilities. Videoconferencing or audioconferencing services may be installed in the rooms upon special request.
An experienced team of conference staff assists in the planning and servicing of meetings.
