A varied congress year for Basel in 2015

8th May, 2015

With the OSCE Ministerial Council, the Congress Center Basel (CCB) was able to bring last year to a close with a highly prestigious event. For two days, the city of Basel was in the international spotlight, receiving much praise for the smooth staging of this major occasion.

In 2015 again, 200,000 visitors from all over the world are expected at the CCB for a wide variety of events. With representatives from the international world of finance, via tropical medicine, right through to immunohaematologists – one eminent congress follows on from another:

  • 69th Congress of the International Fiscal Association – IFA
  • 9th European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health – ECTMIH
  • 48th Annual Congress of the DGTI
  • 11th Annual European Antibody Congress 2015
  • 10th Annual Biocontrol Industry Meeting
  • MipTec 2015
  • 2015 Annual Conference of the German, Austrian and Swiss Haematology and Medical Oncology Societies

In April 2015, the team in Basel is particularly delighted to be hosting the ICCA Sector Venues International Client/Supplier Business Workshop 2015 – a key industry event.

New complex by Herzog & de Meuron

The Congress Center Basel – Switzerland's biggest congress centre – belongs to the dynamic MCH Group, a leading international live-marketing group. Located in the heart of the city, it is directly alongside the Basel Exhibition Center, just a short walk from many hotels and restaurants. The striking new hall complex, by internationally acclaimed architects Herzog & de Meuron, is directly linked to the CCB, combining optimum functionality with outstanding architectural style. The Congress Center Basel’s facilities include 25 modern and technically well-equipped rooms. Plenary events with over 5,000 participants, and space close by for concurrent breakout sessions, is now no problem at the CCB.
