MCH Messe Basel

MCH Group - Saturday, December 1, 2018    


Basel is the biggest and most important exhibition location in Switzerland and one of the key locations in Europe. The exhibition site in the heart of the city has undergone major redevelopment work based on plans by eminent Basel architects Herzon & de Meuron, and the new building is being inaugurated in April 2013.
Once the new exhibition complex has been completed, the exhibition site will comprise modern hall complexes, a multifunctional event hall, the Congress Center Basel, and an own Musical Theatre. Many of the individual halls and rooms, with their multifunctional designs, can be combined with each other, permitting an exceptionally high level of flexibility in terms of configuration and capacity.

Knowledge and Innovation

The Congress Center Basel is Switzerland's largest conference centre in terms of surface area. Our multifunctional premises for up to 3'000 people are comfortably appointed and equipped with the very latest technology, satisfying the most stringent of expectations. Once the new buildings for Messe Basel have been completed in 2013, the new multifunctional Event Hall, with its generously-dimensioned foyer and gallery, will considerably expand the facilities we have to offer. And these are rounded off by the Musical Theater Basel and the different-sized exhibition halls at Messe Basel, which are located directly alongside us.

Basel is located at the heart of Europe – a compact city in the area where the three countries of France, Germany and Switzerland all meet. Basel offers easy access by air (EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg), by rail (international hub for high-speed trains in Europe) and by car. If you take tram no. 1 or 2, you can reach Basel Exhibition from the Swiss or French (SBB/SNCF) railway station in 10 minutes or from the German (DB) station (Badischer Bahnhof) in 3 minutes by tram no. 2 or 6.

Parking

Basel is the point where the Swiss, French and German motorway networks meet. Basel Exhibition and the trade-fair grounds have their own motorway exit. The "Messe" exit from the A2 motorway leads directly to the fair and congress ground. There is a multi-storey car park with space for 1300 vehicles at Exhibition Square.
