Microsystems technology in focus
This year, once more in parallel to the MEDICA, the COMPAMED (14 until 17 November 2016) with approximately 800 exhibitors will be taking place for the 25th time.
Always scoring top annual results with reference to the number of exhibitors and visitors, it has long since developed into the leading international marketing communication platform for suppliers of the medical technology industry. Where, at one time, simple parts, components and equipment for technical devices and medical products had primarily been presented, today, COMPAMED is a hotspot for complex high-tech solutions.
Here, the microsystem technology solutions for mobile diagnosis, monitoring and therapy systems are particularly in line with the current trend. These include, among others, smart sensors and energy storage systems for use in "wearables", microtechnology applications for intelligent implants or printed electronics. In addition, the subcontracting and outsourcing of services for all elements of the process chain (R&D, production, supply chain management, quality management, spare parts handling, etc.) are continuing to gain in importance.
With 18,800 visitors last year, the COMPAMED broke its best record so far. A total of 130,000 specialist visitors from around 120 countries toured the MEDICA and COMPAMED in 2015.
This unique combination allows MEDICA and COMPAMED to represent the entire process chain and the full range of medical products, devices and instruments. Together, they keep the Düsseldorf trade fair complex (19 halls) fully booked.
