Key figures

The Congress Center Basel hosts an average of 250 events a year, among them international congresses lasting several days, national and international conferences, trade exhibitions, panel discussions, press conferences and a wide range of special events in the areas of music and show business.

A footbridge links the Congress Center Basel directly to the trade-fair grounds, which cover an area of 14.1 hectares. Few other locations in Europe can meet the growing demand for congress facilities directly linked to trade-fair grounds, the ideal setting for combined events: congresses accompanied by trade exhibitions, trade fairs accompanied by congresses and seminars.
