Basel Proves Itself to Medical Academics

The Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) organised this year’s conference in Basel from 25 to 29 August at the Congress Centre Basel (CCB). The organisation brings together professors, lecturers, researchers, members of government and public administrations and also ambitious young academics from the medical and healthcare disciplines.

The Centre welcomed 3,800 participants, a plenary event with 3,000 guests, 35 sessions staged simultaneously and an accompanying exhibition on an area of 8,000 m2, featuring 83 exhibitors and 900 posters. The conference used the entire infrastructure of the CCB and the adjacent Swissôtel, proving that Basel is suitably equipped for major congresses with more than 3000 participants. Pat Liley and Nicola Williams from the AMEE communications agency PCO Worldspan were full of praise for the location, organisation and running of the conference.
