Like so many other events, the trade fair for the Swiss construction and real-estate industry had to be postponed and scaled down due to the pandemic. The fair is now being staged as Swissbau Compact from 3 to 6 May 2022 in Hall 1.0 at Messe Basel. After this once-only special edition, work will continue on further developing Swissbau as originally planned. In January 2024, the Swissbau fair is being staged in the customary manner again, as a multi-industry fair that meets the needs of a wide range of stakeholder groups.
Globalisation, climate change, digitalisation and, now, energy supplies are all issues that are presenting our society with major challenges. All over the globe, people are engaged in the search for solutions, resulting in a quick succession of new technologies, materials, tools and ways of living and working. Trade fair organisers are also operating in this arena of conflicting priorities. It is thus essential for them to have a profound knowledge of their industry, to be networked with it and to benefit from recognition by all the stakeholders.
Swissbau meets these requirements by working together closely with its partners, linking up the relevant stakeholder groups, constantly expanding its community and setting up live events and digital platforms. At the Swissbau Focus event platform, presented for the first time in 2012, the focus is on specialist discussions and networking. And with the launch of the Swissbau Innovation Lab in 2018, it became possible to experience digital transformation live and network the community.
Together with a marketplace that includes an exhibitor presence, these two successful formats will be providing the content for the once-only special edition of Swiss Compact running from Tuesday, 3 to Friday, 6 May 2022. In addition to the 250 partners and exhibitors professional visitors can look forward to a top-notch, interdisciplinary event programme. All the events are included in the admission ticket.
“We’re making a virtue out of necessity and will be pressing ahead with our transformation into a network and knowledge platform in the course of this special year”, explains Rudolf Pfander, Brand Director Swissbau. “We’re thus delighted that the decision-makers and doers of the construction and real-estate industry will be able to meet up live again at Messe Basel.”
