Swissbau Innovation Lab – the special show for digital transformation

The Swissbau Innovation Lab takes up the topical issues associated with digitisation and is thus right abreast of the times. This special show for digital transformation allows visitors to experience the opportunities and relevance of the new technologies for the construction and real estate industries in many different ways and provides a suitable stage for their digital innovation. The life cycle of a building forms the central theme and is deployed to illustrate how buildings will be planned, constructed, used and operated in the near future.


The Swissbau Innovation Lab is developed and implemented in conjunction with partners from research, planning, construction and operation. Innosuisse, the Swiss Agency for Innovation Promotion plays a leading role in the development of content as Main Partner Innovation, together with Bauen Digital Schweiz and now also the SIA, as Main Partners Transformation.

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."
