The platform is a magnet for entrepreneurs, architects and planners and provides further education and interdisciplinary discourse in the digital age.

Fuckup Night – Applauding failures and mistakes

In keeping with the motto “Trial and Error – courage for new approaches?”, a Fuckup Night is being staged for the first time at Swissbau Focus from 17:00 to 18:30 on Friday 18 January 2020. Here, entrepreneurs will be recounting how they failed with a number of their ideas, what they learned from this and what ultimately led them to success.  Fuckup Nights publicly celebrate mistakes and failures (fuck-ups).  Those who have suffered a hard fall and have still picked themselves up again receive acclaim. Hold out, learn and keep going is the credo of all fuckup nights. This event format is now successfully attracting attention and provoking a great deal of applause in more than 40 countries worldwide.  A new feature at Swissbau 2020.
