Chamber of Industry and Commerce New Year’s reception

On 3 January the Central Swiss Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHZ) invited its members in Lucerne to come together to toast the New Year.


The IHZ was founded in 1889 by leading companies in Central Switzerland. Its objective is to represent the interests of the business community to cantonal and federal authorities and to offer its members a range of services and information.

The IHZ is also keen to provide its members with opportunities for sharing ideas and experience: this New Year’s get-together at the Schweizerhof Hotel’s magnificent Bringolf Room was one such occasion. In his address, IHZ Chairman Hans Wicki reminded his audience that openness and flexibility were of existential importance for companies. The formalities then gave way to enthusiastic networking, lively conversations and clinking glasses as attendees wished each other a happy and prosperous New Year. Apostroph Group was represented at the event by CEO Philipp Meier, who was pleased to toast to the success of Central Switzerland’s business economy.
