MEDICA - World Forum for Medicine International Trade Fair with Congress with COMPAMED International Trade Fair High-tech Solutions for Medical Technology

MEDICA is the world’s largest event for the medical sector. For more than 40 years it has been firmly established on every expert’s calendar. There are many reasons why MEDICA is so unique. Firstly, the event is the largest medical trade fair in the world – it attracts several thousand exhibitors from more than 50 countries in the halls. Furthermore, each year, leading individuals from the fields of business, research, and politics grace this top-class event with their presence — naturally alongside tens of thousands of national and international experts and decision-makers from the sector, such as yourself. An extensive exhibition and an ambitious program — which together present the entire spectrum of innovations for outpatient and clinical care — await you in Düsseldorf.

In addition to the professional "MEDICA Forums and Conferences" have become an integral part of the trade fair. Forums and several special shows on varied medical-technological topics are concisely presented in the halls as an attractive complement to the trade fair. E.g. MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM with MEDICA App COMPETITION, MEDICA HEALTH IT FORUM, MEDICA ECON FORUM, MEDICA TECH FORUM and MEDICA LABMED FORUM. The conferences are the German Hospital Conference (the leading communication platform for decision-makers in German hospitals), the MEDICA MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE, the MEDICA PHYSIO CONFERENCE and the International Conference on Disaster and Military Medicine (DiMiMED). Another highlight is the MEDICA START-UP PARK whre innovative young comanies present the trends in the medical technology of the future.

MEDICA is and remains the international platform for start-ups – even, or especially, during the pandemic

The MEDICA start-up COMPETITION, the Healthcare Innovation World Cup, the MEDICA START-UP PARK and more than 100 start-ups with pitches in the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM show that the world’s leading medical trade fair MEDICA in Düsseldorf has also established itself as the international platform for start-ups. Currently, preparations for holding this year’s MEDICA as a hybrid event are in a crucial phase (the event will be held from 15 - 18 November 2021), and the in-person event at the Düsseldorf exhibition halls will be combined with many digital programme points that can be called up from anywhere via the industry portal using a ticket at the same time. Due to the pandemic, a purely virtual MEDICA reached decision makers from 169 nations and from all sectors of the healthcare industry last year (a total of 45,000 unique users).
