Decision makers of the international healthcare industry were “spoiled for choice” when it came to the themes at the world’s largest medical trade fair MEDICA and the internationally leading supplier trade fair COMPAMED in Düsseldorf. On the four days of the fair, around 120,000 visitors (with an international share of approx. two thirds from around 155 countries) enjoyed an offer that was more extensive and international than ever before. The fair took place from 12 to 15 November 2018. 5,273 exhibitors from 66 countries and an international share of more than 80 percent mean a new record for MEDICA. COMPAMED also seamlessly continued its record run with 783 exhibitors from 40 states.

MEDICA is the hotspot for start ups from around the world
New start-ups gave presentations every day in the “MEDICA DISRUPT” initiative, held within the scope of the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM and the MEDICA App COMPETITION (Hall 15). A total of over 50 start-ups stormed the stage to present solutions for everything from treating skin cancer and chronic conditions (affecting the heart and lungs, for example) to telemonitoring and tracking of vital signs and activity. Thrilling start-ups could also be found in the MEDICA START-UP PARK, at the Wearable Technologies Show (both in Hall 15).
