MCH Swiss Exhibition (Basel) Ltd. – abbreviated: MCH Basel Exhibition – has its roots in the “Schweizer Mustermesse” Cooperative (Swiss Sample Fair) which was founded in 1916 in Basel and later gave rise to “Messe Basel”. In 2001, “Messe Basel” merged with the then “Messe Zürich” exhibition centre to become Swiss Exhibition, and is now the MCH Group.
MCH Basel Exhibition is responsible for operating the exhibition and congress site in Basel and also for holding some twenty fairs and exhibitions staged by the MCH Group itself.
MCH Basel Exhibition has 306 employees (31.12.2015). It is run together with MCH Messe Zürich within a single organisation.
