    What participants say about our events

    Thank you for hosting this very qualitative tech event and for the hospitality of Crans-Montana, the Tech place to meet !

    Olivier Mondon
    <Senior Communications Manager at DJI Europe/>

    Very high quality events, with relevant and prestigious speakers. I consider the WXRShow to be an absolute reference in terms of exchanges and insights on new technologies.

    Philippe Nasr
    <Director of the Swiss-China Chamber of Commerce Romandie Chapter/>

    We need several more one-day events like the WXRShow in Crans-Montana. 2-4 per year could be a good number.
