Wiz-Team supports operations of first pop-up House of Switzerland

For the first time, an exclusive pop-up House of Switzerland just opened its doors in the German city of Stuttgart and Wiz-Team is proud to support several operations of this innovative project. Organised by “Presence Switzerland”, a unit of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs responsible for promoting Switzerland’s image abroad, the House of Switzerland aims to promote Swiss culture and business cooperation with the neighbouring region of Baden-Württemberg.

Over a four-month period, a varied programme of around 100 events will be organised on topics of common interest, with a strong focus on innovation and sustainability. The almost 2,000m2 space in the heart of the city will also host interactive exhibitions, workshops and be home to an array of Swiss culinary delights. According to the organisers, Stuttgart will be the first stop of a European roadshow, with the pop-up House of Switzerland also set to visit cities in Italy, France and elsewhere.

Wiz-Team is supporting this new initiative by providing its event management solution Event-Works for the areas of registration, accreditation and badge printing, communication, and the scheduling of sessions. For Stuttgart, the entire platform runs smoothly in German thanks to Wiz-Team’s multilingual module.

In addition to being part of this exciting project, Wiz-Team will also support the operations of the House of Presence Switzerland during the World Expo in Dubai, to kick off on 1 October 2021. This six-month festival will celebrate human brilliance and achievements in the fields of architecture, technology, innovation, music, arts and more.

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.
