The ITI World Symposium is being held at the Messe Basel within the halls designed by renowned Basel architects Herzog & de Meuron. The unique facade of twisted aluminum bands encloses the ITI World Symposium 2017 setting that is inspired by the dynamic world of modern airports. Bustling departure gates, quiet lounges and a lively exhibition zone provide ample opportunity for the event’s more than 4,200 anticipated visitors to meet and network while taking part in an exciting scientific journey. This is further facilitated by an innovative technology service that allows participants to exchange and gather information using a small interactive device. Any information gathered continues to be accessible and up to date in the “cloud”, which eliminates the need to produce and carry around large amounts of paper during the event.
By choosing Basel as the event location, the ITI is returning to its roots and home base. The city itself provides a beautiful backdrop to the event, with a charming old town that is easily accessible from all the hotels and the congress venue.
