Newsletter 02/2021


  16 June 2021

Dear Customers, Partners and Friends,

The falling case numbers, the protective umbrella that the federal government has put in place for the event industry and the success of the recently staged Art Basel Hong Kong are giving us hope for a rapid return to normal operations. We have therefore made a start on planning the first live events in our locations already. You will find out which events these are and what else we are busy doing in the articles in this newsletter. And who knows – perhaps you’ll be coming to see us in person soon?

Kind regards,
Jonas Scharf, Managing Director Venues MCH Group

Art Basel Hong Kong: A successful test run for the show’s return to its home city.

The International Society of Travel Medicine coming to Basel.

In a personal interview, Prof. Dr. Hatz told us how he managed to motivate his association colleagues to come to Basel.
