The MCH Group has its roots in the "Schweizer Mustermesse" (Swiss Sample Fair) which was established in Basel in 1916 and later became Messe Basel. In 2016, it not only celebrated the 100th Muba but also the group’s 100th anniversary. The anniversary motto of "100 Years Ahead" captures the pioneering spirit and innovative drive that have marked out the MCH Group since it was founded as the Swiss Sample Fair more than 100 years ago.
