At LABOTEC Suisse 2012, you'll meet potential new customers from the region where the fair is being held: easyFairs brings the show to the visitor's doorstep. This attracts busy trade professionals, including many representatives of SMEs who have neither the time nor the budget to travel to the huge mega-shows, where the real content of the trade fair is often obscured by the circus-like environment!
Its clearly structured, compact concept and friendly but business-like atmosphere make LABOTEC Suisse 2012 the perfect platform for making new contacts and doing business in one of Europe's most dynamic markets.
Switzerland's third largest city, Basel is at the heart of the “RegioTriRhena” (a.k.a. “Regio Basilensis” and “Dreiländereck”), a tri-national economic area encompassing southern Baden (Germany), northwest Switzerland, and upper Alsace (France). The Swiss life sciences/pharmaceutical sector, centred in Basel, contributes the greatest value-added: the output of just three of Basel’s big pharmaceutical companies accounts for about 10% of the world's total medicine production. Two of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, Hoffmann-La Roche and Novartis, are headquartered in Basel; other big names include Syngenta, Ciba Specialty Chemicals, Clariant and Huntsman.
Other important sectors are the chemical industry, finance and insurance, logistics and the creative industry, plus countless SMEs operating in the wider area include electrics/electronics manufacturers, auto parts suppliers, machinery producers, various high-tech companies and service providers.
