What is Expat-Expo?
Expat-Expo is a one-day, admission-free event designed for the English-speaking residents of Switzerland. The event is intended to gather various local English-speaking businesses, organizations, museums, clubs and service providers together, under one roof to showcase their goods and services. Expat Expo is a must-attend event for Switzerland's Anglophone residents and conducts annual expos in Zug, Basel, Zurich, and Geneva with hundreds of different companies exhibiting and attracting thousands of visitors per year.
Why Expat-Expo is Important to our community:
Integrating into a new country can be a daunting process and Expat-Expo is designed to help the Anglophone community feel quickly at home here. We believe our service contributes greatly to the successful integration of newly arrived families and veteran expats alike and reduces the stresses of integration for expats and their employers.
Our objective is to provide your company effective and affordable access to the lucrative English-speaking marketplace of Switzerland. Expat-Expo is not only a very good marketing tool but is also valuable for networking with other business owners. Companies that exhibit are looking for long-term exposure to clients and the opportunity to build solid relationships over time. Although exhibitors do sell products and services at Expat-Expo, the visitors are primarily there to learn about the different goods and services on offer to them and often do not make purchases during the event. Anyone that exhibits should bear this in mind and view their participation in Expat-Expo as an opportunity to demonstrate their products or services to the public.
Any company may exhibit and the range of products and companies at Expat-Expo is amazing, from one-person companies all the way up to large multi-national corporations. Many of the businesses exhibiting are expat-owned but there are also many Swiss companies attending, including: World Radio Switzerland, UBS, Zurich Insurance and Swiss Life as well as many Swiss museums and local tourism offices.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome and we encourage visitors to bring their families to enjoy our free Bouncy Castle! Our crowds vary from location to location and the weather can play a role too but we estimate attendance to be approximately 1000-2000 each in Geneva, Zurich and Basel and in Zug we have about 1000 visitors.
