The Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) is a worldwide association with members in over 90 countries on all five continents. The organisation's membership includes professors, lecturers, researchers, members of governments and administrations, and also ambitious young academics from the disciplines of medicine and healthcare.
Since 1973, AMEE has been organising an annual conference in a European city. In 2018, this large-scale event is being staged in the Congress Center Basel (CCB) from 25 to 29 August.
Over the years, this meeting of experts has developed into the most important global event in the industry. More than 3000 participants are expected to attend. In Basel, they will learn about the latest developments, exchange ideas regarding knowledge transfer and engage in networking. All the participants have the opportunity to present their work in the form of memos and posters and thus obtain feedback from an international audience.
More than 3000 delegates
The CCB is delighted to be staging this major event in cooperation with Worldspan – AMEE's communication agency. Since the entire congress infrastructure at the CCB is needed for the AMEE conference, it represents an ideal opportunity to internationally highlight the potential of Basel as a conference venue.
Basel was chosen as a conference location for AMEE 2018 back in 2016 already. One of the factors in its favour was naturally that Basel is able to satisfy the demanding space requirements – including with a plenary room that can seat around 3000 delegates.
The conference organisers appear to be very impressed by the city of Basel, as is clear from the conference website: "Classed as the cultural capital of Switzerland, Basel is a striking town, with beautiful medieval buildings spread along the banks of the Rhine, and a thriving art scene with around 40 museums."
