On 27 April 2024, Wikimedia CH will embed its General Assembly (GA) in a Wikipedia Day in Bern. Our guests will experience a day of  talks, networking opportunities, insights to Wikimedia CH’s programme, exciting partner projects, and much more.

Marketplace for networking

The Marketplace is a central element in the afternoon of Wikipedia Day. Engaged groups, active members and cooperation partners are invited to present themselves and their projects at a stand. The Wikimedia CH programmes offer insights into their work and are available to talk face to face.
A market stand is a simple conference table. It is up to the exhibitors how they design it and what they want to present. The participation is free of charge. If you are interested, please register at events@wikimedia.ch by 30 March at the latest.
