What are the advantages of exhibiting at the World Forum for Medicine 2018?
MEDICA receives between 120,000 and 130,000 professional visitors each year, who come to Düsseldorf from over 120 different countries. Of these, around 60% are foreign visitors. With over 5,000 exhibitors (hailing from 65 nations) and a further 800 exhibitors at COMPAMED, the supplier trade fair held in parallel, MEDICA offers a scope that is unrivalled throughout the globe. No other event in the world takes on the complete workflow for patient care in both the outpatient and inpatient sectors, covering them equally and leaving no stone unturned. Exhibitors therefore consider us a must-attend event. MEDICA is the perfect place for companies to create contacts throughout the world and consolidate business relationships.
Can you give us some tips on how to make the most of this event?
Prepare well and you’ve prepared for success: this applies to any trade fair visit. Of course, it’s true for MEDICA too. MEDICA.de, our internet portal, offers optimal information for planning your trip. You can search for exhibiting companies in the company and product database and save them in your personal trade fair guide. All of the programs for the accompanying conferences and forums can also be called up on the MEDICA.de portal. I personally recommend the MEDICA START-UP PARK in Hall 15; all visitors are sure to love it. Here, new companies show off their innovations, which overwhelmingly fit in with the digitalisation wave which is gathering momentum in the healthcare industry.
How can I apply to exhibit or attend?
Exhibitors can no longer register for MEDICA 2018. However, registration for MEDICA 2019 begins straight after MEDICA 2018 has closed (12-15 November, i.e. from 15 November).
Lastly, can you give us some visitor stats from the last edition?
Last year's MEDICA and COMPAMED counted a total of 123,500 visitors from 130 countries.
