These events are organized in four different cities in collaboration with the local chamber of commerce and will consist of two main parts: project presentation and matchmaking session.

All the award candidates will have to present their projects in the selected award category. This segment provides a platform for candidates to showcase their successful strategies and approaches. It enables them to exchange valuable insights and experiences with local and international participants.

A matchmaking will be co-hosted with the local International Chinese Chamber of Commerce. This interactive session allows candidates to engage in targeted discussions and explore potential collaborations with Chinese partners. The purpose is to facilitate meaningful connections and foster mutually beneficial business relationships.

Engage a Massive Fanbase:

new Public Voting App

To enhance the visibility of sponsor companies, we have introduced an innovative addition to the traditional jury, which consists of Swiss Embassy representatives and experts. In addition to their evaluation, the general public will also have the opportunity to vote, although their votes will carry less weight compared to the experts and the rest of the jury.

The inclusion of public voting serves as a means to generate visibility throughout society. This groundbreaking feature will significantly amplify the visibility of our sponsors, as their presence will be prominently showcased on the app, reaching thousands of potential voters.
