Congress Center Basel

Basel, Switzerland

Conference and Event Facilities

The Congress Center Basel is Switzerland's largest conference center in terms of surface area. Our premises for up to 5,000 people are comfortably appointed and equipped with the very latest technology, satisfying the most stringent of expectations. The new multifunctional Event Hall with its generously‑dimensioned foyer and gallery considerably expands the facilities we have to offer. And these are rounded off by the Musical Theater Basel (seating 1,500) and the different sized exhibition halls at Messe Basel (holding up to 10,000 people), which are located directly alongside us.

The Congress Center Basel provides all the services you require, tailor‑made to meet your needs exactly. If you wish our experienced team will plan, organize and implement your event. Catering is provided by Käfer Schweiz AG, which provides custom made solutions for coffee breaks, lunches and dinners.
