They’ve survived the nine casting shows – now the top participants will proceed to the live shows for a final chance to present themselves and showcase their talent to the judges, the live audience on site, and millions of TV viewers at home. The two semi-finals and the final on 11 April 2015 will be broadcast live from the Bodensee Arena in Kreuzlingen. This year, Winkler was for the first time responsible for supporting the three live shows from start to finish.

Yamaha – SWISS-MOTO 2015
At the twelfth Swiss Moto show, the motorbike, scooter and tuning show broke all previous records. With a record number of 213 exhibitors, visitors could look forward to a huge variety of new releases and special models, and the matching accessories, as well as many attractions such as the European premier of the world’s fastest motorbike. Yamaha presented their innovations to over 70,000 visitors in front of a huge print and a large LED screen with Winkler lighting and video equipment.
UFA SHOW – Live castings - The greatest Swiss talents
After a two-year hiatus, a third season has returned to the Schweizer Fernsehen (SRF) channel. In front of an audience of millions, the judges are looking for the greatest entertainment talents in the country. In nine casting shows in Theater 11, judges Christa Rigozzi, DJ Bobo, Sven Epiney and Gilbert Gress will decide who’s got talent and can secure a place in the live shows. Winkler sets the stage perfectly for the artists with lighting, LED, hall sound and video.
OSCE – Ministerial Council Conference
On 4 and 5 December this year the Ministerial Council of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) met in Basel. A special occasion for Europe, a great honour and challenge for Basel and a highlight for Winkler.
NAB Award – Aargauer of the Year Award Ceremony
Every year Neue Aargauer Bank (NAB) invites residents in the canton to nominate people for their special achievements. The right light, a perfect audio and video transmission and the Winkler know-how in design and stage building transformed the award ceremony of the title 'Aargauer of the Year' into a successful glamorous gala evening for 1,500 guests, including federal councillor Doris Leuthard. The event, which was televised live by Tele M1, was hosted in professional and glamorous style by Sandra Studer. We warmly congratulate the lucky winner and proprietress of 'Chäber' on her award.
tpc – Kampf der Orchester
Swiss radio and television has produced a new music show. In the 'Battle of the Orchestras' eight Swiss brass bands qualified for the live show and presented their music to the public in a completely new manner. Just as each of the eight bands was supported by a celebrity, Winkler backed up the entire production of the three live shows with top technology and personnel.
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Days Zurich – Fashion Festival
Spotlight on Switzerland's major fashion event. This is the fifth time that Winkler has had the pleasure of staging the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Days Zurich. Aside from the usual technical equipment, our brilliant catwalk orchestration proved impressive again.
Toyota – Car Show Messe Zurich
With around 60,000 visitors, the Auto Zurich Car Show is one the largest multiple brand expos in German-speaking Switzerland. As ever, Winkler was back on board this year. In order to make the most of public interest, we expertly equipped the Toyota booth with appropriate lighting and rigging to attract all eyes to the company's new models.
Honda – Paris Mondial de l'Automobile 2014
Honda presented its latest brand trends at the Paris Motor Show. The focal point was the revamped Honda CR-V, given a facelift with a completely new front and sporty design. A successful première for the new Honda look, enhanced by light, audio and video from Winkler.
Infiniti – Paris Mondial de l'Automobile 2014
Paris Motor Show – the ideal venue for Infiniti to showcase its new luxury models. Winkler placed the luxury brand in the limelight – on an exhibition space of more than 1,000 sqm – bathing it in brilliant light from all sides with a video-LED wall in the background to display the new models on a large scale.
