Lucerne 2017

61st International Congress

The 61st International Congress of FIDEN was held from 19th until 22nd of October 2017 in Lucerne, Switzerland.

Under the motto „Positioning as Building Services Provider in Times of Digital Change" we looked at the presence and future of our industry. What does digitalization 4.0 mean? How can I prepare as a building services provider for the changes arising from digitalization? How can I start today to adjust my company?

In our discussion forum renowned building services providers exchanged their views on the demands they are faced with from their customers due to changes in the digital age and outlined solution approaches.
Interesting contributions by experts from universities, companies, public administration and associations who had made a name for themselves on these topics awaited the conference participants at the FIDEN Congress 2017 with the latest information and lively debates.

Alongside the Congress, also in 2017 we had an interesting and entertaining framework program which gave the opportunity to explore Lucerne and the places of interest in the region and talk shop with other congress participants in a relaxed atmosphere.
In a work visit the delgatse learned about the particular requirements regarding the cleaning and maintenance of a monastery and a distillery.

The city, the lake, the mountains: Lucerne, surrounded by an impressive panorama of mountains, offered an abundance of sights, art and culture. Strolling along the shore of the Lake of Lucerne and having an aperitif on the Reuss river, strolling through the historic city centre and experiencing Lucerne’s modern and sociable lifestyle. A Congress nobody should have missed!
