Tying it all together.

The leading trade fair for the construction and real estate industry in Switzerland.

Master builders creating presentation with a tower, 10 bricklayers competing for tickets to final


Swissbau and bauenschweiz, as the umbrella organisation for the Swiss construction industry, warmly invite you to the opening ceremony for Swissbau and to the “Tour d’horizon” on Messeplatz/Exhibition Square. 

The Schweizerische Baumeisterverband (SBV) will be attracting attention with its spectacular presentation at Swissbau 2020. This is centred around a 15 m tower – the “Tour d’horizon”. Prominently positioned on Messeplatz/Exhibition Square, the tower will be the centrepiece at the opening event already and will continue to be a major attraction for visitors throughout the trade fair. With the “Tour d’horizon” project being launched at Swissbau, the SBV wishes to enter into a dialogue with the population. This is because building ultimately employs and affects people in many different situations in life. In the “Tour d’horizon”, the master builders thus wish to confront the population in a playful manner with questions of importance for living, working and travelling in the future. The aim is to find out what the population’s needs are. So why not come to Swissbau and take part on the spot?
Advertising for the profession is also a relevant component. In Hall 1.1 during Swissbau, it will be possible to watch ten young building talents demonstrate their skills in the semi-finals of the Swiss Bricklayers’ Championship, competing for the five coveted tickets for the SwissSkills finals.
Locations: “Tour d’horizon” on Messeplatz/Exhibition Square, Bricklayers’ Championships in Hall 1.1.
