Whether it’s an employee event or a VIP party, a promotion, a roadshow, a congress or a press conference, our Event Construction Department will have it completely covered – the exact implementation of an event design, from planning through to completion.

Spectacular Gala Events

We construct unique experience worlds for the galas of IWC Schaffhausen at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in order to launch their new annual collections. Expomobilia realises all scenery and grandstand constructions, signage and textile work.

In 2019, IWC Schaffhausen celebrated the launch of its new pilot watches. According to the motto «Silver Spitfire – The Longest Flight», Expomobilia transformed the location into a stylish evening ambience for an exclusive gala evening boasting a hangar look. The bar, carrier arches, DJ desk, hangar gate, grandstand, floor signage and the interactive Photo Booth were all produced in-house by Expomobilia. All graphic design work was carried out by our own team as well.

BMW Brand Experience Center

Expomobilia was commissioned by BMW (Schweiz) AG to create an internationally unique kinetic installation, which has become an eye-catcher at the BMW Brand Experience Center in Dielsdorf (CH). The biggest challenge was the detailed implementation of the concept by Luxoom Medienprojekte GmbH. Numerous movable elements, motors and the control system had to be built with extreme precision within a very limited amount of space. Expomobilia utilized motors and units that would otherwise be used in space travel. The 'Pixel Curtain', with a total of 36 pixels, is controlled by sophisticated software using hand signals. The development of this system took several months. Mechatronics, software and hardware were developed, manufactured and installed by Expomobilia as general contractor.

 

En Prison

 
Expomobilia | En Prison

“Prison” (French for jail), the traveling exhibition has been commissioned by the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, the Confluence Museum in Lyon and the German Hygiene Museum in Dresden. It is currently being showcased at the Red Cross Museum in Geneva until August 2019. With its forward, unconventional and avant-garde design, the exhibition looks at the subject of incarceration from all angles- from imprisonment and exclusion to detention conditions, social reintegration and restorative justice.

Expomobilia managed the overall in-house production of fittings, graphics as well as the printing, delivery and installation of this travelling exhibit. The modular room and wall elements of the installation offer high levels of flexibility, hence enabling the mobility and versatility that are crucial whilst executing a roadshow. All of the elements have been specifically designed and entirely manufactured in-house by Expomobilia as compact units, that can easily be installed and delivered to diverse locations.

“The Fairy Tale Factory” exhibition, commissioned by the Ethnographic museum in Geneva (MEG), opened to the public in May 2019. The MEG highlights traditional stories with this exhibition. Eight tales, little or unknown to the general public, are staged in "Theaters of the Imagination". Magic lanterns, dioramas, mirrors, optical illusions and changes of scale allow to immerse oneself in the history and to free oneself from the rules of the real world.

Expomobilia constructed the exhibition walls, produced the interior fittings of the theme rooms and the showcase enclosures. We collaborated with Holzer and Kobler Architects, implementing their concept and set design for bringing the unique versions of traditional fairy tales to life.

As well as the stage design, our event specialists were also responsible for the event decoration. Under the motto of “Attractive Living”, the meeting areas were decorated with seasonal flowers and plants as well as stylish decorative elements.

ABB’s 125th anniversary & BEA BlachReport Event Award 2018

2016 represented an important milestone for ABB. In 1891, 125 years ago, Charles Brown and Walter Boveri founded their company Brown, Boveri & Cie in Baden. The anniversary was marked with impressive celebrations in Chilbiplatz in the town of Wettingen in the Swiss canton of Aargau at the end of October 2016.
Expomobilia was contracted by Standing Ovation, the company responsible for designing and organizing the event on behalf of ABB, to provide services which included the entire interior design and decorations for the temporary structure where the celebrations were held. Expomobilia also took responsibility for constructing the complex stage made from customized projection surfaces and supplying the furnishings and fittings, the signage and the flower arrangements. For this project standing ovation received the renowned BEA BlachReport Event Award 2018.

Special tasks

In addition, Expomobilia carried out a number of special tasks, such as providing the four foundations for the industry robots that formed part of a spectacular stage show.
The total area covered by the structure was more than 4000 m2 and it took 17 days to erect. All of these preparations resulted in a successful event that fulfilled the end customer’s wishes and complied with the client’s specifications.

Siemens SSP Global Meeting

SSP Global Meeting 2018: Stilish Co working space with subtle touches of colour

Within the framework of the SSP Global Meeting 2018 at ETH Zurich, Expomobilia's event construction team organised a modern and cosy environment for a one-day seminar on behalf of Siemens. Our event construction specialists turned the simple but classic auditorium into a colourful and pleasant "meeting zone" for the 100 seminar participants. In just four hours, a pleasant co-working space was created – with comfortable seating and a few splashes of colour in the form of purple carpets, green plants and yellow room dividers.

Tissot

 

Tissot’s Fascinating World of Watches at Zurich Airport

Together with our event construction team, Tissot is building a wide-ranging world of watches at Zurich Airport. Over an area of around 120 m2 the watch specialist is presenting the latest models from the dynamically stylish series Classic, Sports, Tactile, Heritage and Women. The five highlight islands carry the passengers off on an exciting voyage of discovery into the fascinating art and technology of timekeeping. As a result, before their departure the passengers can enjoy the craftsmanship of the Swiss watch brand, which is forever creating new innovations and setting trends. Expomobilia organised the roadshow material in compliance with the security requirements of Zurich Airport and erected the stand in the Airside Center in just a few hours. A logistical and organisational challenge that our experienced event construction team, together with Tissot, expertly mastered. Because both Tissot and Expomobilia are there for you around the clock.

From Development to logistics management: all by Expomobilia.

SWISSLOS GOLDESEL: Commissioned by the advertising agency Contexta and Rufener Events, Expomobilia staged a roadshow for Swiss lottery operator Swisslos in a number of towns and cities across Switzerland. Bringing to life the Brothers Grimm fairytale “Table-be-set”, featuring a golden donkey that spits gold when its tale is pulled, may have been a somewhat unusual task for our Development and Engineering Department, but the result of their engineering skills and craftsmanship is lots of fun for roadshow visitors, who can literally grab the donkey by the tail and, with any luck, win an instant prize.
