The event organisers say decision-makers of the healthcare industry have committed to participating on site. In a recent survey of several thousand MEDICA and COMPAMED visitors from previous years, three quarters stated that they intend to attend this year’s trade fairs.
The medical technology industry is equally positive about the events. “Our partners and the trade associations stand firmly behind the trade fairs and appreciate the value of in-person events. The exhibitors are very interested in participating and have expressed their delight in being able to meet all the important industry decision makers and exchange ideas in real life again at Messe Düsseldorf. This is important, particularly after so many months of exclusively digital contact with business partners and potential customers,” said Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf, based on his many conversations with participants.
Based on the experience with last year’s virtual events due to the Covid-19 pandemic (which drew a total of 45,000 unique users from approximately 170 countries and 405,000 page views), items on this year’s programme that are in high demand on site, will also be offered online.
This applies to the forums which are integrated into the themed segments of the trade fair, such as:
- • MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM
(including the MEDICA Start-up Competition
and the Healthcare Innovation World Cup)
- MEDICA HEALTH IT FORUM
- MEDICA TECH FORUM
- MEDICA LABMED FORUM
- MEDICA ECON FORUM.
At COMPAMED, the following forums are on the programme: the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH FORUM, with a special focus on the microtechnology and nanotechnology sectors, and the COMPAMED SUPPLIERS FORUM, where the content is focused on the entire development and manufacturing field.
