Winkler built many of the show booths for Swissbau in the new building designed by internationally acclaimed architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron. Names include famous brands like Geberit, V-Zug, KWC, Bauknecht and many more. For the largest project – the Swissbau Focus competence platform – Winkler supplied the rigging, the entire lighting concept and the interior design for the multipurpose Event Hall, and ensured that a host of themed events, workshops and the Swissbau Focus Arena ran smoothly during the fair’s five days.

Le Musée Olympique de Lausanne – Re-opening ceremony
A dazzling event for IOC VIPs. The retiring president Jacques Rogge symbolically handed over the key to the fully modernised Olympic Museum to new president Thomas Bach, and received the crème de la crème of the sports world and society on two evenings. Winkler was commissioned to wow the illustrious guests immediately on arrival.
Swiss Venture Club – SVC North Switzerland Business Award 2013
Radiant winners, outstanding entrepreneurs and stirring moments: at Messe Basel’s Congress Centre, Winkler was again responsible for staging this challenging event before an audience of 1,200 invited guests from the worlds of industry, culture, politics and the media. The client also commended our crew: “We can’t praise you enough. Many thanks for the great collaboration.” We would like to thank them for their trust, and are radiant in our turn.
Neue Aargauer Bank – Aargau Gala of the Year 2013
Winkler invested its wealth of broadcasting experience in this established event and designed a set that is equally suitable for stage shows and presenting – not to mention the 1,500 invited guests of the NAB Gala and the audience of the regional TV station Tele M1. As a full service provider, Winkler was responsible for all technical aspects from power to lighting, audio and video and live broadcasting with a televised fringe programme.
VW – Los Angeles Auto Show
Frankfurt, Paris, Detroit, Geneva, Tokyo, New Delhi, Shanghai, Beijing and now Los Angeles – Winkler is responsible for Volkswagen’s complete audio at all top motor shows worldwide. The equipment, some of it weighing several tonnes (loudspeakers) or measuring just a few millimetres across (Lavalier microphone) travels by air from Wohlen across the world, where Winkler consistently delivers the same legendary Swiss and German quality in a wide variety of cultural settings and languages. Extremely well built. By Winkler. Worldwide.
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Days Zurich – Fashion Festival
For the fourth consecutive time since the event began, Winkler partnered with Switzerland’s most prestigious fashion festival. We were responsible not only for all technical services including the VIP marquee at Turbinenplatz, all fringe events in the foyer and outdoor areas, but also for the interior design.
Radio Télévision Suisse – Projection of the RTS archives on Tour Bel-Air
To mark the UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, Swiss broadcaster Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS) mounted a spectacular event to create a special impact. For one entire evening the Bel Air Tower in Lausanne was transformed into a giant screen, with images from the RTS archives of the 1950s-1960s projected onto the building facade. The event was aimed at raising public awareness of the value of RTS’s audiovisual heritage, and the need to preserve it.
Aargau Health and Social Vocational Training Organisation – “Caring Professions” Cinema Promo
Aargau canton’s professional association for vocational training in the health and social sector commissioned Winkler to produce a filmed advertisement. Winkler produced a premium quality cinema promo with an award-winning team. Winkler was in charge of the entire project, from props and casting, location scouting, script, filming and music to post-production. We are proud of the result – a promotional film of international calibre.
Infiniti – Exhibition stand at the IAA
Another sensational showcase for Infiniti. Last year in Paris, this year at the IAA in Frankfurt, the world’s most extensive motor show for the automotive industry. Back then, Winkler developed floodlights for its automotive customers along with JB Lighting to meet the specific and high demands of the car manufacturers and their exhibition builders. Even after some months of use the clients remain extremely enthusiastic about the LED floodlights with infinitely adjustable colour temperature. They are energy-efficient, time-saving and beautiful.
150 Jahre Baloise – Employee party
Six working days to set up an employee event is no easy task. On Monday morning the first of 16 trailers will set out and by Sunday evening everything will be in place. Bâloise is celebrating its 150th anniversary with the band Status Quo, and is hosting a special celebration for its 3,000-strong workforce with no less than three worlds and one main stage. Winkler is creating a unique atmosphere for each world, which poses a wide range of technical challenges.
