Basel - an international hub for life sciences

The Medtech & Pharma Platform Annual Conference takes place in Basel, Switzerland. As a recognized global hub for innovation in life sciences. ​Technological advances are increasingly merging the boundaries between medicines and devices, driving an increasing interest by the pharmaceutical sector to partner with innovators in the Medtech sector.  With many major players in both industries already located in Switzerland or in the tri-national Basel area, Basel is an ideal location to explore and develop cross-industry partnerships between biopharma and medtech companies.


The Congress Center Basel hosts the Annual Conference of 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.
