Save costs and time: reserve the dates for your set-up and dismantling and order parking spaces, storage areas and logistical services. MCH Basel Exhibition operates according to a modern and innovative logistics process: All transport to the exhibition site must be registered in advance for a specific time slot. The Smartlog tool will be available for you to book for set-up and dismantling from the end of August 2023.

Important logistics information

Transhipment of goods in the delivery zones and halls

The unloading and loading as well as the transport of the material to/from the stand is handled exclusively by our logistics partner Sempex and is subject to a charge. Vehicles of up to 3.5 t may be unloaded / loaded by the exhibitors themselves and the goods and equipment also transported to and from the stand by the exhibitors. The lift facilities during assembly and dismantling in the delivery zones are reserved for Sempex transports, with a few exceptions marked on site.

For successful assembly and disassembly

  • Access to the exhibition site: online registration
    • Log in on smartlog.
    • (Login documents for exhibitors were sent by the logistics team on 29.08.2023.
    • Booth builders usually already have a login. New booth builders contact helpline@messe.ch).
    • Determine your time slot for each transport (applies to set-up and dismantling).
    • Print out the “Checkpoint registration form” and forward it to your forwarding company if necessary.
  • Direct hall access for cars
    • The direct access can be cancelled at short notice depending on the situation.
    • Direct hall access is permitted at these times (Not via checkpoint). Book your time slot in the logistics tool between:
    • Monday, 25.09.2023 from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
    • Thursday, 28.09.2023 from 5.00 pm onwards
  • Delivery / pickup on day X: Checkpoint in Basel / EuroAirport
    • (GPS Checkpoint: GPS: Zone Sud de la Plateforme Aéroportuaire, 68220 Hésingue, France – 47.583514,7.538172)
    • The exhibition logistics staff will check and complete your registration slip and direct you to the delivery zone at the exhibition hall.
    • Without a registration slip, the transport must be re-registered at the checkpoint. This is subject to a charge (CHF 100.-), free time slots must be waited for.
  • Smooth cargo handling: delivery zone at the exhibition center
    • Your goods will be unloaded directly by the staff of our exhibition forwarding agent Sempex and transported to your stand. Likewise vice versa during dismantling.

Please note:
  • All transports to and from the exhibition grounds must be notified in advance: smartlog.
  • Non-notified transports will not be granted access to the delivery zones and will be directed to the checkpoint. Subsequent notification at the checkpoint will result in delays and additional costs for your transport.
  • Unused reserved time slots block other exhibitors and are therefore subject to a charge (CHF 200.-). Please cancel these in good time yourself or by e-mail to helpline@messe.ch.
  • Driving is prohibited on Sundays for vehicles over 3.5 t. With vehicles under 3.5 t, however, you are permitted to carry out transports on the exhibition grounds on Sundays. Notification via smartlog.
  • Aisles must be cleared by 2 p.m. on Monday, September 25, 2023.
  • Report delays to the checkpoint at the telephone number as per the registration form.
