MCH Group and Worlddidac Association end their cooperation

Published on 4/21/2015 by Kathrin Ebner, Corporate Communications

As of Autumn 2016, the MCH Group will no longer be organising the two education platforms of Worlddidac Basel and Didacta Schweiz Basel. The Group's cooperation with the co-organiser, Worlddidac Association, which dates back some 50 years, is being discontinued. 

For 48 years, MCH Swiss Exhibition (Basel) Ltd., a company belonging to MCH Group Ltd., has organised and held Worlddidac Basel, the internationally leading education fair for the global educational resources market, in cooperation with the Worlddidac Association. In 2012, the biggest Swiss education fair for state and private schools, Didacta Schweiz Basel, was added to this. The last editions of Worlddidac Basel and Didacta Schweiz Basel were staged at Messe Basel in October 2014 and made a highly positive impression on exhibitors, visitors and the media alike (a total of 388 exhibitors and 17,085 professional visitors). 

The Worlddidac Association with its head office in Bern is the global industry association for companies supplying products and solutions for education and training at all levels. 

At the end of March 2015, the cooperation agreement between MCH Swiss Exhibition (Basel) AG and the Worlddidac Association, which had run until the end of 2014, was not renewed, following several months of negotiations that had failed to produce a consensus. The future of the two education fairs, Worlddidac and Didacta Schweiz, will be the responsibility of the Worlddidac Association as of now.
