Basel – conference city with everything in easy reach

Its central location, first-class transport connections and modern infrastructure make Basel one of the most important trade fair and congress cities in Europe. It is not for nothing that Basel is considered the cultural capital of Switzerland.

Event organizers and visitors alike also appreciate the compactness of the city. The Convention Bureau at Basel Tourism would be happy to help you organise all the aspects of your event or congress as a capable, unbiased and free consultant.

We hope to be able to welcome you to Basel very soon. 

Switzerland is the world’s meeting point. Nestled between France, Germany, Austria and Italy, it is at the very heart of Europe. And so it’s no wonder that the world’s first national Convention Bureau was founded here. With a whole host of innovative event venues, an inspiring backdrop and a cosmopolitan atmosphere, Switzerland is popular not only with tourists but also for meetings, conventions, conferences and incentives. 

Basel, conveniently situated at the point where three countries meet, has considerable charm and is at the same time progressive on a global scale. Its compactness and an infrastructure that is conducive to large gatherings make the city an especially attractive setting for all kinds of events. Its unparalleled public transport network will enable you and your guests to travel comfortably and punctually. Basel offers a range of modern locations for meetings and conventions of all sizes and types.

The Basel region is Switzerland’s most dynamic and innovative economic area. Its success is due to its position as Europe’s no. 1 life sciences cluster with global players Novartis and Roche as well as numerous research institutions. This, in turn, draws talent from all over the world.

In Basel-City alone, 34% of the population comes from abroad. Located at the heart of Europe, right next to Germany and France, it is rated as the most accessible region in Switzerland. More than that, its incomparable art and architecture scene and its lively approach to life also put Basel-City among the “hippest” of the Swiss cantons.
