We are very proud and happy about the two received awards for the Swiss Pavilion at EXPO2017 in Astana. The Golden Award has been awarded by the renowned BIE (Bureau International des Expositions) in the category "Development". The silver award was given in the "Best Presentation" category. An international jury of nine members visited each pavilion of the 115 countries and the 22 international organizations participating in Expo 2017 Astana. In four different categories, depending on the size of the participation in the country, the official participant prizes were awarded either for exhibition design or for the development of the theme "Future Energy".
Extract from the jury evaluation:
Swiss Pavilion @ EXPO2017 in Astana: The project’s theme is “Nature in Motion” and is being jointly organized by us – general contractor for temporary constructions such as pavilions and trade fair booths – and the renowned design and architecture firm Atelier Oï based in La Neuveville. The aim was to create an entertaining and interactive exhibition where visitors can test and experience their relationship with energy in intelligent and efficient ways. This intuitive creative concept will also demonstrate how each and every one of us can make a small contribution towards the creation of something huge.
The exhibition at the Swiss Pavilion was divided into four chapters and distributed across a total area of 460 m².

Expomobilia’s VIP platform concept impressed the event’s organisers with its unusual design. It involved repurposing old shipping containers to create a bar and storage area and, at the same time, to help support the platform itself. The engineers from Expomobilia carried out a structural analysis of the concept and took all the safety measures that are needed on such a busy event site.
When combined with the supporting framework, the result was an attractive urban structure that fitted in perfectly against the varied artistic backdrop of the Badenfahrt event.
Expomobilia built the structure in only two days, which allowed all the other construction work for Badenfahrt to go ahead on schedule. The members of our project team were particularly pleased by the obvious satisfaction of the organisers and the positive response from visitors. We are proud to have been commissioned to build the main VIP venue at such a prestigious event.
Halle 622 in Zurich’s Oerlikon district was built by ABB Switzerland and until 2012 served as a production facility for high voltage apparatus. Following their conversion in autumn 2016, this collection of former industrial buildings were reopened in February 2017 and run by MAAG Music & Arts AG as a multifunctional event and concert location. As General Contractor, Expomobilia was responsible for managing the entire project, including the detailed planning, feasibility studies, construction and onsite assembly.
