The Event Concept

Here’s how it works: Exchange, information, exhibition 

Every two years since 2004, the Powertage has brought together all the important companies, experts and decision-makers in Zurich.  Together with leading associations, the Powertage initiates discussions and promotes exchanges about current and complex topics.  An attractive event programme featuring specialists and unexpected keynote speakers, as well as an extensive exhibition of Switzerland’s most important industry representatives, creates an inspiring setting for the electricity industry to exchange ideas and network.

The concept is built on the pillars of “forum”, “networking” and “exhibition”. The conceptual development covers the needs of partners, exhibitors and visitors even better and consolidates the event’s status as the meeting place for the Swiss electricity industry.

1. Hear what the industry experts have to say 

The Powertage Forum will highlight a range of perspectives on current topics such as “Intelligent Usage of Electricity”, “Private Consumption”, “Mobility” and “Storage”. Lively discussions on these issues will take place as part of podium presentations and talks.

2. Exhibition: Marvel at innovative products and solutions 

The well-established Powertage event stays close to the market, which is also reflected by the current and comprehensive offerings of our exhibitors. The innovations, products and services presented during the trade fair demonstrate concrete solutions, particularly for professionals at energy supply companies as well as those responsible for procuring electricity for bulk purchasers and the public sector.  

3. Exchange ideas: Join the conversation

Meet industry colleagues, share ideas and develop the solutions of the future together. The Powertage offers the perfect setting for all of this to take place. Nowhere else can you encounter the combined force of the industry! 2024 will bring new, innovative formats such as roundtable discussions with experts or keynote presentations held by exhibitors at the Speakers’ Corner.
