Why Switzerland Global Enterprise is participating in Digital Day

Innovation and top digital technologies set us apart, allowing us to spark other companies' interest in Switzerland. At the same, we want to convince more exporters to use technology to grow internationally. This simplifies entry into markets near and far. "Digitization paves the way toward global growth for Swiss SMEs," says Daniel Küng, CEO of Switzerland Global Enterprise. These are the messages that we are sending to the international Swiss economy as part of Digital Day.

Nationwide Digital Day events

During Digital Day, a moderated program of events will take place at Zurich Central Station, touching on topic involving mobility, media, education and employment, technology and innovation, health, and virtual reality. The central stations in Geneva, Chur and Lugano will also be transformed into Digital Day hubs.
