MEDICA and COMPAMED 2016 provide a powerful stimulus for the international medical technology industry.
Once again, the world’s biggest medical trade fair MEDICA and the leading international supplier trade fair COMPAMED, which take place in Düsseldorf, have provided a powerful stimulus for the international medical technology industry. For each of the four days of the fair, from 14 to 17 November 2016, specialists from all sectors of the health industry ensured that the daily intake of visitors was consistently high (127,800 / equal to last year’s number) in the trade fair’s 19 halls.
The essential market trends were also expanded upon with the content of the accompanying conference and convention programme, which were oriented to target groups. They were, as usual, very well attended. Among others, the MEDICA PHYSIO CONFERENCE, with its main theme this year of “Joints and Joint Replacement”, and the MEDICA MEDICINE SPORTS + CONFERENCE, oriented towards specialists from the sport and preventative medicine sector, serve as excellent examples here.
The 39th German Hospital Conference offered [around 2,000 participants] a multitude of health politics and practice-oriented sessions as part of this year’s general theme of “Shaping the Future”, serving as a significant communication platform for clinical management. The most famous visitor was the German Federal Minister of Health, Hermann Gröhe, who caught up on selected innovations for modern and connected patient-centred care on a tour of the exhibition after the opening of MEDICA 2016 and the German Hospital Conference.
In connection with MEDICA, COMPAMED was held for the 25th time. COMPAMED is a leading event for the supplier market in medical technology manufacturing. In both halls (8a and 8b) the [19,000 visitors] could find out about innovations and relevant trends in product development from the 774 exhibitors from 37 countries, as well as in two expert forums.
