The majority of Basel’s hotels to partner with Baselworld

Baselworld’s exhibitors and visitors will benefit from an agreement that guarantees transparent hotel prices in two thirds of Basel’s hotel accommodations.

Baselworld and the majority of Basel’s hotels have achieved a significant milestone that sustainably reduces lodging costs for the show’s exhibitors and visitors, while simultaneously establishing transparent conditions. Among other aspects, the agreement defines maximum prices per hotel room. In return, Baselworld will actively recommend its partner hotels.

“We are very pleased to see that many hoteliers not only embraced but also contributed towards the success of this initiative”, says Michel Loris-Melikoff, Managing Director of Baselworld. “Approximately two thirds of the hotel market agreed to participate, which is great news for our exhibitors and visitors, as hotels are an important factor in the Baselworld experience. With this partnership model, we were able to create a win-win scenario, combining interests of hoteliers, exhibitors and visitors.” Felix W. Hauser, President of Basel’s Hotelier Association, confirms: “The hotel partner programme was created in cooperation with Basel’s Hotelier Association. A large percentage of our members view the programme positively.”

Partner hotels have agreed to comply with three to four criteria regarding their offers for Baselworld. Hotels that fulfill all four criteria are now “Official Partners”; hotels that comply with three of the four predefined criteria are “Preferred Partners”.

The jointly defined criteria are:

1. Compliance with the agreed maximum price per night / double room including breakfast as listed below:

5* sup CHF 1290
5* CHF 990
4* sup CHF 750
4* CHF 650
3* sup CHF 600
3* CHF 550
2* CHF 350
1* CHF 200

2. No minimum length of stay

3. No price increase compared to 2018

4. No compulsion for additional consumption

The conditions apply for Baselworld 2019 and are retroactive for existing bookings. Accomodation at the listed hotels is not guaranteed and is subject to availability. Prices are only guaranteed for bookings made directly with the hotel.
