In the Name of TEOS: United We Stand

The White Turf in St. Moritz



Teos was known as an ancient Greek city on the coast of Ionia, one of the twelve which formed the Ionian League – the first alliance of city-states in the region. «United we stand, divided we fall» seemed to be the anthem of this coalition, even in the organization of festivals and games. More than 2000 years after that age, TEOS has become an acronym and a label of quality for the Top Events of Switzerland whose the Festival del film Locarno is a proud member.

From Lucerne Festival in Summer (from August 12th to September 11th, 2016) to the international track and field meeting in Zurich (the Weltklasse, on September 1st, 2016), not to mention the Omega European Masters in Crans-Montana (the golf tournament is scheduled on September 1-4, 2016), the TEOS gathering is promising a lot of emotions before the end of the year.

And for the next year, check it out: the Ski World Cup Wengen (January 13-15, 2017), the White Turf in St. Moritz (February 12th, 19th and 26th, 2017), Art Basel in June and the Montreux Jazz Festival in July are already offering all the best you can find in our country. There is then more than one reason to feel patriotic, maybe celebrating the Swiss National Day on August, 1st. And if you will do that, be close to Locarno: the very next day the 70th edition of our Festival will start, and we are sure you do not want to miss it.
