The three-storey complex of hall 1 – built in 1998-1999 and 2011-2013 – constitutes the centrepiece of Messe Basel. The Hall 1 is accessed from Exhibition Square through the North and South Foyers in the City Lounge, which boasts a striking atrium. With a continuous surface of 420 metres, Hall 1 makes for a unique atmosphere. Exhibitions with multi-storey stands (hall height up to 10 metres), events with stage and platform structures and also other major events are just a few of the countless possibilities for this unique building.
