The Congress Center Basel is Switzerland’s biggest congress center in terms of surface area. Located directly alongside Messe Basel, it is in the immediate vicinity of a large number of hotels and a
varied range of restaurants. A footbridge provides a direct link to the new exhibition building designed by Herzog & de Meuron, increasing visitor comfort still further and makes modern congress
infrastructure exceedingly attractive. The 25 modern-rooms are noted for their multifunctionality and variable configurations and hold up to 10’000 people.
Multifunctional rooms, professional services, and staff’s expertise in organizing congresses, conferences, seminars, exhibitions, and presentations guarantee that planned events run smoothly.
Congress Center Basel hosts 250 events every year.
11 of the spaces at Congress Center Basel are modular, thereby allowing them to be used individually or in combination. This fact and the proximity to the modern exhibition facilities and Basel’s
Musical Theatre means that event organizers can benefit from extraordinary flexibility.
