Basel as hub

The Medtech & Pharma Platform will take place in Basel, Switzerland. As a global hub for innovation in life sciences, Basel is an ideal location to explore cross-industry partnerships between biopharma and medtech companies.

There is an increasing interest in the pharmaceutical sector to partner with innovators in the Medtech sector, many of them already located in Switzerland or in the tri-national Basel area.


The Congress Center Basel will host the 5th edition of the Medtech & Pharma Platform. As the largest convention center in Switzerland and conveniently located at the heart of Basel, the Congress Center Basel is easy to reach by tram, train, car and plane.
