Exporter demain! 2017

Rethinking business models - The international competitive edge of tomorrow

Exporter demain! 2017

The export meeting place for French-speaking SMEs in Switzerland

Swiss SMEs are past masters in the art of continually improving the efficiency of their products and processes. But there remains strong pressure on their margins. To create a competitive edge for themselves internationally, Swiss SMEs will have to adopt an intelligent economic model in future to adapt to technological and societal changes in their target markets and to find new sources of revenue.

The event «Exporter demain» organized by Switzerland Global Enterprise is the major annual meeting place for French-speaking Swiss exporters. Aimed primarily at small and medium-sized enterprises, the event is a source of inspiration and advice for conducting business profitably internationally. It will offer talks by renowned speakers, numerous opportunities for interaction and chances for discussions in small groups.

The theme of the event will be considered in greater depth during breakout sessions hosted by experts. The heads of businesses will share their own experiences in discussions involving small groups (Executive Talks). Participants – including many SMEs – will benefit from numerous breaks and a buffet, where there will be an opportunity for networking and discussion of the challenges in prospect and the solutions to be put in place.
