Swissbau Innovation Lab – The special show for digital transformation

The Swissbau Innovation Lab takes up the current topics of BIM – Building Information Modelling – digital solutions and building in the future. This special show for digital transformation allows visitors to experience the opportunities opened up by the new technologies in the construction and real-estate sectors and shows how buildings will be planned, built, used and operated in the near future. Together with more than 60 partners from industry, research, planning, construction and operation, this unique presentation is being staged at the heart of the trade fair with a new architectural concept.

HIGHLIGHTS

The Swissbau Innovation Lab comprises the following highlights:
iRoom – Interactive Virtual Reality Show

The show focuses on the real area of “uptownBasel”, which serves as an innovation laboratory for the Swissbau Innovation Lab. Since March 2019, more than 60 Partners have been working on innovation projects for the area in interdisciplinary teams. A joint vision has been drawn up for the construction and real-estate industry of the future. The exciting concepts can be experienced in the iRoom at Swissbau, in an interactive show.
 
Innovation Village – interactively staged products and solutions from the Partners, now including a startup hub

More than 60 Partners will be presenting their digital use cases in the Innovation Village and thus offering visitors a compact overview of current innovations in the fields of smart building, smart connectivity, smart mobility, smart energy and smart services. In the startup hub, future-oriented young companies will find a platform on which they can present their developments and ideas.
 
Speakers Corner – live presentations of current digital use cases in the industry

The Partners will be presenting their digital use cases in short pitches of 3 minutes on the Speakers Corner stage in the centre of Communication Square. Following this, the innovations will be discussed by professional experts on the stage and placed in a wider context. Powered by Innosuisse.
 
Satellite Partners – exhibitors’ digital innovations directly on their trade fair stands

Testimonials

Marcel Schmuki
Marcel Schmuki, dormakaba, Head of Marketing and Product Management Switzerland:
“The Swissbau Innovation Lab Workshops were an excellent networking platform for us. As a participating company, we were involved in the development of the Swissbau Innovation Lab right from the start. This meant we were able to input our ideas and, together with the others, create a visitor experience that focused on digital transformation from company practice, which we fully support.”
Thomas Schlierenzauer
Thomas Schlierenzauer, Hilti Head of Product Marketing:
“We hadn’t been at Swissbau for around 20 years. The Swissbau Innovation Lab brought us back to the fair in 2018. The most frequently asked question on our stand was: What is Hilti doing here? People know us as a manufacturer of drilling machines. And now we’re suddenly in the Swissbau Innovation Lab and talking about digital transformation. It was precisely this contrast, this presentation stage and this change in people’s perception that we had been hoping for in order to present our innovative solutions.”
Andreas Jöhri
Andreas Jöhri, Ittenbrechbühl, Partners:
“For us as an architects' and planning office, participation in a trade fair was something completely new. As a big firm of architects, we are very much involved in digital transformation and are endeavouring to work on the front line. We then had the opportunity to participate in the Swissbau Innovation Lab and show people what we are currently working on. This enabled us to move outside the usual planning circles and establish direct contact with other innovation drivers, manufacturers and planners."
