Four technologies from startups such as Perspective Robototics, Qumram and Advertima were particularly outstanding.

The 2018 motto of the Swiss Pavillion is «Research & Innovation» and «Business Security». Startups with innovative technologies have the opportunity to take the center stage in representing Switzerland.
