The coopertation with Messe Basel was great. We’ve started early talking about sustainability and brainstormed together, checked what activities and measures we have in place and how Messe Basel can contribute.

Sustainability plays a very important role for us at BIO-Europe Spring and has always been. We’ve always tried to source locally and be mindful about energy consumption and to create as less waste as possible.

The focus measure for this event was definitely catering. We tried to make offerings that are as seasonal and locally sourced as possible. We had a huge focus on plant based and vegan alternatives. We’ve only used recycable cups and a recup system that Messe and Congress Center Basel was pioloting with us.
