Wiz-Team is proud to support the operations of the Swiss Pavilion at the World Expo in Dubai, which will kick-off on 1 October 2021. With the theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”, this six-month international event will celebrate human brilliance and achievements in the fields of architecture, technology, innovation, music, arts and more.

Organised by Presence Switzerland, a unit of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs responsible for promoting Switzerland’s image abroad, the Swiss Pavilion will reflect Switzerland’s scenic beauty and its position as a world-leading technology, scientific and innovation hub.

Wiz-Team CEO Johann Woringer says: “We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with Présence Suisse and supporting such a prestigious event. It’s pretty exciting to help present our home base Switzerland on a global stage!”

The registration process to visit the Pavilion, which will provide the visitors with an authentic Swiss experience as well as a journey through the Swiss innovative ecosystem, has recently opened and is operated by Wiz-Team’s event management software Event-Works. This innovative solution will also be used for accreditation management and badge printing, the scheduling of sessions, communication and reporting.

Event-Works’ modular approach provides a flexible and scalable tool which can be easily customised to the needs of different event types. For instance, the Swiss Pavilion in Dubaiexpects 10,000 visitors to join in public and private side sessions where Swiss partners will present their research and products through small exhibits, talks and showcases aligned with the Expo’s Focus Weeks.

JOHANN

CEO

As the founder and CEO of Wiz-Team, Johann has been a part of this adventure long before the start of the organisation 10 years ago. This dynamic and fast-growing company was born out of gap in the market Johann and his colleagues experienced as event managers in the early 2000s.  With little tools available to effectively manage the demands and challenges of data management for complex events, they decided to build their own solution. 

Shortly thereafter Johann created Event-Works and later Wiz-Team with the vision to deliver world class digital solutions built by event professionals for event professionals. From Wiz-Team headquarters in his hometown Lausanne, he oversees a global network of developers and experts, who support the organisations mission to empower event professionals through smart, intuitive, and innovative digital solutions. 

Johann’s expertise in event data management is outstanding.  He has delivered innovative event management solutions to every Olympic Games edition since 2004 alongside a range of other international events. Having worked across many sectors, including sports federations, the medical congress industry, corporate companies, and government agencies, he has acquired a wide-ranging background and an exceptional experience in various types and sizes of events. Before he set up Wiz-Team, Johann specialised in web and database development, as well as project management in the luxury industry, and teaching.

Johann holds an MBA in international management and speaks English, French and some German. In his spare time, he enjoys scuba diving, discovering the world on a motorbike, gaming and exploring new technologies.
