Participation to Swisstech - Basel 2015

21/11/2015

Swisstech: It is important to be there.

The Basel Trade Fair remains a key date for industrial contractors, especially if they are supported by a competent staff like the Foreign Department of the SMBs and Industrial and Artisans' associations of Lecco – API and Confartigianato.

Eleven companies took part to the collective event this year, including Bastai Enzo s.r.l., one of the seven participating API members.

"It is inevitable that the difficult economic situation would affect the number of visitors to the fair – explained Marco Piazza, the head of API's Foreign Department – however, this must be seen as an incentive to improve and to open up more to foreign markets. It is crucial that we change perspective: Our companies should look for potential clients, showcasing their expertise and the quality of their products by participating to these international events where Italian skill and know-how can demonstrate that they are competitive and often the very best." This is the objective of API's Foreign Department, supporting SMBs every single day, providing services aimed to finding international partners, and participating to trade fairs.
