Trade fair booth @ ILMAC

ILMAC, Switzerland's most important specialist trade fair for process and laboratory technology, came to an end on Friday, 23 September 2016. In the course of the four-day event, more than 12 000 professional visitors obtained information about product innovations, technological applications and process solutions. The issue of “Industrie 4.0”, a topical one affecting the entire sector, was the central subject dealt with at the ILMAC Forum and was examined from both the theoretical and practical perspectives. The “Lunch & Learn” sessions, in particular, organised by the Swiss Chemical Society aroused intense interest amongst the audience.

Davidoff VIP Lounge

A breath of luxury

In its new VIP Lounge, Swiss cigar producer Oettinger Davidoff AG is presenting the Davidoff Art Initiative and the company's products at the Art Basel shows. To create the appropriate atmosphere, the traditional techniques of tobacco-growing and cigar production have been visually incorporated into the lounge created by exhibition-stand builders, Expomobilia. The Caribbean feels particularly close here. The newly designed lounge was set up for the first time in the Collectors' Lounge at Art Basel in Hong Kong and was used again in 2016, at Art Basel in Basel. It is also being shipped to Florida for the Miami Beach show in December. Designed by the celebrated Atelier Oï of La Neuveville in Switzerland, the lounge was built by exhibition stand builders Expomobilia of Effretikon. For further information, go to: MCH Group Blog

The MCH Group is celebrating its 100th birthday in 2016. It was in 1916, with the first “Samples Fair”, that the foundation stone was laid for the successful international group of companies that we are today.

Highlight of this anniversary year: the employees’ anniversary celebration at the Event Hall in Basel
This colorful and eventful party on 9 September featured rapper Knackeboul, who MC’d the evening, the show acts Traktorkestar, Stickstoff and the rapper FABE, aka Kevin Messerli (with Stephanie), and DJ LukJLite.
And of course we shouldn’t forget to mention the happy winners of the great MCH Challenge, who were presented their awards by René Kamm himself.

That this was a really special evening was down to the perfect organization, so our grateful thanks to everyone at MCH Group, Rufener, Winkler and Expomobilia who helped bring it about!

Silver: Export Award Projekt Haval

We are very pleased to won the Silver Export Award 2016 for our project for Haval at Auto Shanghai 2015.

The three-storey exhibition stand with a curved aluminium structure covered a total area of 3000 square metres and was illuminated alternately in red and blue, in line with Haval's «Red and Blue» brand strategy.
The stand seems to have impressed Switzerland Global Enterprise, the Swiss export promotion forum, because we have been nominated for its Export Award in the «Step-in» category along with two other companies. The presentation of the award will be one of the highlights of the Forum for Swiss Foreign Trade & Investment which is taking place on 21 April 2016 at Messe Zurich.
