ABB’s 125th anniversary

Customer ABB

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 exhibition booth structure where the celebrations were held.

Complete spatial design including the complex stage construction

Expomobilia’s exhibition booth builders 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.


Square metres

Similar to our work on temporary trade show exhibits, the total area covered by the structures was more than 4000 m2 and took only 17 days to erect. All of these preparations and our vast experience as a tradeshow exhibit company resulted in a successful event that fulfilled the end customer’s wishes and complied with the client’s specifications.
