Press Centre

The Press Centre will move directly into the centre of the action at Baselworld 2019, where it will be located on the Central Plaza in Hall 1.0 and thus in close proximity to the most important brands in the sector. All media professionals will find a workplace here that offers them the opportunity to prepare their reportage right at the heart of the industry, yet simultaneously surrounded by the peace and quiet they need to concentrate on their work. Equipment, services and amenities are designed to serve the individual interests and needs of journalists.

The Press Centre is open from 19 to 26 March. You can also use it after the official opening hours (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.) of the halls. After-hours access is via the side entrances at Isteinerstrasse.
