Actelion Pharmaceuticals Ltd. has held its Annual General Meeting at the Messe Basel Congress Center for many years already. I took over organising the AGM when it was already being staged at this location. After my first experience of holding an AGM on the premises of the CCB, I resolved to continue using the Congress Center Basel.

The rooms have sufficient space for all the shareholders who attend, without giving the impression that the event is bursting at the seams. Ideally, the CCB offers us a main room with the possibility of providing catering in the light-flooded foyer in front of the room. What more could one want?

Käfer Schweiz AG also met our expectations as far as the catering was concerned, displaying great flexibility in the process. We were highly satisfied with the selection and presentation of the food.

Over the years, we have formed a well-coordinated team with the Congress Center Basel, working together with them intuitively, almost "without words". I have always been impressed by the active commitment of the CCB team and by how experienced their technicians are.
