Public Events

Public events are the charismatic show masters of public occasions. They captivate a wide-ranging audience and focus on thrilling settings with light, sound, video and effects. Public events are often staged outdoors at exceptional locations. 

Winkler Livecom has been the long-standing preferred partner to some of Switzerland’s largest and most famous public events in the world of sport, culture or society at large. 

And why is that? We have a talent for enthralling many different stakeholder groups and striking the right chord: with a design that is perfectly matched to the event and show acts. Not to mention smooth interaction between our project team and the client, dealing with adverse weather conditions and complying with safety regulations.
