An inspired duo
Basel and Miami Beach (USA) have enjoyed a close relationship for many years. After the Art Basel Miami Beach took place for the first time in 2002, a regular exchange began to take place betwee the two cities. The sister event, Art Basel in Florida, celebrated its tenth edition in December 2011. As part of this anniversary, the cooperation between the two art metropolises has been officially sealed in a City Partnership.
The focus of the city partnership is on the interests of both sides in culture, tourism, economic development and education. The City of Miami Beach has a strong concentration of institutions, initiatives and companies in these areas. In addition, due to its position, it also creates an interesting bridge to Latin America.
