Surprising stories and impressive photographs: to mark this year’s anniversary of the MCH Group, a book was being published on 2 March 2016 with the title “In Step With Time. From Swiss Industries Fair to MCH Group”. Nine written contributions and eight pictorial sections tell the story from the first Swiss Mustermesse (Sample Fair) in 1917 through to the present. In this interview, the editor and historian Patrick Kury talks about working on the book, the pictorial treasure troves from the exhibitions and a fateful fire that broke out in 1923.
