Go international as an SME – Pioneering spirit for sustainable success

The Aussenwirtschaftsforum is the meeting point of the year for all Swiss exporters

Tuesday, April 28, 2020 – Save the date or register today!

Benefit from the exchange with 600 participating SMEs and discuss the future forum topic together with our experts, our 22 Swiss Business Hubs and 5 Trade Points.

Switzerland is a nation of inventors: its SMEs are characterized by strong innovation and pioneering spirit. To adapt to the changing environment, companies that want to drive their growth and grow internationally must prepare for global risks and opportunities in an agile manner. To do this, they need a sophisticated and sustainable internationalization strategy. Whether it be offline or online, markets need to be built up over time – with the right business partners, the right sales structure and a broad network.

What to expect

  • Experienced CEOs from SMEs and experts explain how they introduced their innovations to markets near and far with good preparation and consistent Swiss quality. 
  • We show you which sales structures work in which export markets and which online or offline channels have been established.
  • New inspiration for your international business.
  • Exciting keynote speeches, practical sessions with interesting experts and many exciting personalities
  • Export award ceremony
  • As well as a lot of space for exchange and networking

Take the opportunity and learn how to begin expanding into the market or offensively expand your market share!
