The IFA Congress of the International Fiscal Association is held at different different venues throughout the world. Staging the 2015 IFA Congress in Basel was certainly a positive experience for the organising committee. The Congress Center infrastructure was perfect, especially since the premises are directly linked to the new exhibition hall designed by Herzog & de Meuron and its Event Hall on the ground floor. All of this, together with the available hotel capacities in Basel, confirmed once again that we were right to opt for Basel as a congress location.

The more than 2000 financial experts who attended from all over the world (86 countries) held a high-level conference in Basel for five days, and enjoyed an interesting and varied accompanying programme. Both in the formal setting of the opening ceremony and the emotional ambiance of the gala dinner with its accompanying show at the end of the conference, the Event Hall provided the perfect opening and closing highlights for our congress.

The catering – especially at the gala dinner – fully met up to our stringent requirements, with a fair price to performance ratio.

We would like to thank the Congress Center Basel for their great support and helpful cooperation both before and, in particular, during the event.
