SWISSBAU FOCUS – THE INTERDISCIPLINARY EVENT AND NETWORKING PLATFORM
Swissbau Focus is the event and networking format at Swissbau. Together with our partners from business, science, education and the media, we provide a platform for interdisciplinary discussions, knowledge transfer and networking. At Swissbau in Basel, participants discuss current topics and future trends in more than 80 events. Swissbau Focus networks experts and opinion leaders and is the established meeting point for all players in the construction and real-estate industry.
FOCAL TOPIC FOR 2022: NEW PERSPECTIVES FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
The building industry is facing major challenges. It is up to our generation to transform the building stock and drastically reduce the high consumption of resources. At the same time, new technologies and methods are opening up opportunities that need to be exploited. Cooperation across the entire industry is currently undergoing a fundamental change.
Swissbau Focus is the leading platform for knowledge transfer, controversial debates and networking between opinion leaders and experts from the Swiss planning, construction and real-estate industries. In conjunction with strong partners, it brings together know-how and innovations from all the different disciplines and encourages engagement with the central issues of our time. Every two years, Swissbau Focus in Basel unites the brightest minds from all over the country, who jointly highlight new perspectives for a sustainable future.

PARTNERS AT SWISSBAU FOCUS 2022
All Swissbau Focus events are co-created with the leading associations, institutions and organisations from research and initial and further training. All partners will be live on-site during Swissbau 2022 in Hall 1.0 South. Don’t miss this opportunity for face-to-face talks and forging new contacts.
Stefan Cadosch, graduate architect ETH SIA, President SIA, cadosch und zimmermann GmbH:
“The SIA is delighted to have helped shape Swissbau Focus right from the outset and to have clearly made its mark on the contents. In addition to the current problems occupying the construction industry, lectures and panel discussions will focus on topics going beyond the classic work of planners. Just as important for us are the talks we can have with industry representatives, associations and educational and other institutions. Swissbau Focus and our generously dimensioned lounge offer the ideal networking platform.”
Stefanie Bertschi, specialist for buildings, Project Manager for the EnergieSchweiz construction trade fair:
“Swissbau is a unique platform for EnergieSchweiz. The discussions and networking on the subject of energy, the personal talks with the Partners and the joint stand with the Label family (Minergie, GEAK, SNBS, 2000-Watt Sites and the "Gebäudeprogramm" building programme) are of key importance for us. And we make use of interactive presentations to engage with all the industry representatives.”
Daniel Löhr, President of the Career and Communication Group, Swiss Engineering:
“In its diversity, Swiss Engineering, as an association of 13,000 engineers and architects, reflects the society of the present and the future. Our members make a key contribution to solving the challenges of today and shaping the future of tomorrow. We are able to profile ourselves at Swissbau and network with key protagonists. Swissbau provides us with a relevant networking platform – both inside and outside the construction industry. As President of the “Career and Communication” group, I consider it my duty to ensure that Swiss Engineering actively participates in Swissbau."
Thomas Müller, Deputy Managing Director SIA ad interim:
“In the SIA Lounge at Swissbau Focus, we hold discussions with our members, key figures from the planning, construction and real-estate sectors, the building industry and planners’ associations, the administration and the world of politics. In the Arena and the Lounge we will be discussing highly topical subjects: rapidly, spontaneously and directly – and in analog form for once, rather than digitally. The SIA is an official Leading Partner of Swissbau Focus, but we nonetheless regard ourselves primarily as a sparring and discussion partner."
