The last, 103rd edition of muba ended with a ceremonial act on February 17th, 2019. Almost a quarter-million visitors flocked to Basel to experience the "Mother of Fairs" for the last time. At the closing act, the muba guest book was officially handed over to the Historisches Museum Basel.
The traditional concept of the show no longer fits into the current digital world. The discontinuation of muba is a result of the change in consumer behaviour and the declining interest in general public fairs. The organisers are already working on a new concept for an innovative and contemporary public event that is to take place from 2020.
In the meantime, below you will find links to other trade shows of the kind.
