FAQ

Is the event a physical event, in-person?
YES! We are so excited to host the event in-person at the Basel Congress Center, Basel, Switzerland.

 

Can I attend the event virtually or dial in? 
NO. There are a few speakers who may have to give their presentations virtually, but attendees will need to be at the event physically.

 

Does my ticket give me access to both events?
YES. Your ticket will give you full access to both BioData World Congress and Genomics Live.

 

Where can I view the latest agenda?
You can still find our latest agenda by going to the website here . The most up-to-date version will also feature on our event platform, Swapcard which you'll receive the logins for in the upcoming weeks. Please note, there will be no "paper agendas" at the event, so we encourage you to download the app.

 

Will lunch be served?
We have extended the hours that food is available, it is also important to note that packaged food is for sale. You will need to buy your coffee/lunch.

 

When can I collect my event badge?
Please collect your badge from the registration desk. Your entry will be easier if you collect your badge between 4 and 6pm the day before. If arriving on the day, please allow plenty of time to collect your badge.

 

What is Swapcard?
Swapcard is our official event platform app. You should have received your login details by now. Once you have received your details, you must download the app and login as you will need to present your QR code at registration for your badge. 
The app will also give you the opportunity to make connections and network with other attendees. As there will be no paper agendas at the event, you can view it on the app; build your own personalised agenda by marking the sessions you are interested in.

Please note, you cannot attend the event or dial into any sessions virtually through the app. You will need to attend the event physically to participate in sessions.
