The United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) manages a number of facilities for the cultural activities it organizes. A list of these facilities is provided below. In addition to these facilities, an innovative modular exhibition system is now available to all cultural events organizers, thanks to a generous gift made by Switzerland on the occasion of its accession to the United Nations.

For concerts, UNOG can provide podiums and around 300 chairs. Musical instruments, including pianos, must be provided by events organizers.
