European AIDS Conference Basel 2019 statements

IAPCO Annual Meeting & General Assembly 2019, 100 participants

“The Basel Convention Bureau provided support and backup throughout the lead-in period. With the excellent Basel International Conference Centre as our venue and the support of the local hotels, IAPCO host member and numerous social events, our annual meeting had the perfect setting and organisation in place. The welcome from the Basel Convention Bureau began the moment we stepped off the train and continued throughout our stay in the city. The annual meeting, which marked our 50th anniversary, attracted a record attendance. Basel made us proud, and we cannot thank everyone involved enough for all what they have done. As a result of this successful meeting, we can highly recommend the city for international conferences and events.”

Mathias Posch, President of the International Association of Professional Congress Organizers

International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB / ECCB) 2019, 1800 participants

“Without doubt one of the best congress centres in the world! We opted for Basel as a venue on account of its strong life sciences network and central location in Europe. The scientists located here are also prepared to support the development of the congress. We exceeded our expectations by more than 200 participants and celebrated a visitor record. The Congress Center Basel is without doubt one of the best congress centres in the world. The team is flexible, cooperative, professional and reacts rapidly. The infrastructure at the CCB gave us the flexibility that we needed. The support provided by the Basel Convention Bureau was also phenomenal, from the search for a suitable location, via the support for our marketing, right through to the excellent assistance on-site. Our expectations of the catering were also exceeded: the team was highly innovative and delivered solutions to match the budget.”

European AIDS Conference (EACS) 2019, 3100 participants

“The Conference Center is actually fantastic. It is one of the best locations I have ever seen. Delegates really like that everything is very close together. The feedbacks are fantastic. A lot of people say that this is one of the best conferences they have ever been.”

Prof. Manuel Battegay, Co-Chair EACS 2019

  
European AIDS Conference (EACS) 2019, 3100 participants

“A lot of people have been to Amsterdam, Paris, London and Berlin, but they haven’t been to Basel and I think having it in a small city also allows a much more intimate atmosphere ... If you want to try something new and you have that kind of size – 3000 to 4000 people – I think this is a wonderful place to go.”

Prof. Jürgen Rockstroh, Co-Chair EACS 2019

PASC18 – Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing 2018, 400 participants

“With 400 participants from 26 countries this was the largest and most successful PASC conference. We would like to thank Basel Tourism for its support in preparing our conference - the cooperation was invaluable. A large part of the success of PASC18 is based on professionalism and hard work (in front of and behind the scenes). The commitment of the entire team was exemplary.”

Dr. Michele De Lorenzi, Deputy Director of the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre
