Innovation Symposium

Exhibitors present their most interesting showcases at the Innovation Symposium. These concise presentations are an ideal source of inspiration for your own projects and innovations.

The Innovation Symposium takes place daily from 10 am to 12 pm and from 1 pm to 3 pm and is free of charge. You can readily alternate between the expo and the symposium thanks to the latter's central location on two stages at the center of the exhibition hall.

Every speech will be recorded and published on the Swiss Plastics Platform when the Swiss Plastics Expo comes to an end. The Swiss Plastics Platform is a great opportunity to catch up on a presentation you may have missed or watch a particularly interesting speech again.
