Drone Technology Fact Finding Mission São Paulo
Why are we organizing this mission?
Switzerland was again – for the 9th year in a row – awarded by the Global Innovation Index as the world’s most innovative country - thanks to its unique framework that combines access to funding, a flexible and unbureaucratic regulatory system and, above all, the close cooperation in R&D between companies and higher education institutions. Not surprisingly also one of the world’s leading nations in drone-related technology, Switzerland is uniquely capable to meet the Brazilian demand for innovative and tailored drone solutions. The purpose of this mission is to showcase and highlight the capacity of Swiss SME’s in this area organizing a mini Swiss Pavillion (21m2) during the 5th edition of “DroneShow” in São Paulo, the leading fair in Latin America for geospatial and drone-related technologies, taking place from June 25-27, 2019.
We offer a comprehensive programme for start-ups and other companies linked to the drone industry and with an interest to promote their technologies abroad, looking for opportunities, new clients or potential partners. The participation at the Drone-Show will allow the participants to acquire a deeper understanding of the Brazilian market for drone-related technology; our side events will enhance the networking and effective business opportunities, allowing the participants to, under the Swiss Representation flagship, gain visibility and reach a targeted audience.
The Swiss pavilion is co-organized by Switzerland Global Enterprise and Presence Switzerland, the official marketing agency of the Swiss government.
