MEDICA 2020 and COMPAMED 2020, the world-leading information and communication platforms for the medical technology industry and supplier industry for the medical technology industry, will take place entirely online from 16 to 19 November. Within the framework of 'virtual.MEDICA' and 'virtual.COMPAMED', decision-makers from all sectors of the healthcare industry can then expect a comprehensive range of products and services at virtual.MEDICA.de and virtual.COMPAMED.de consisting of three focal areas: The Conference Area (conference and forum program), the Exhibition Space (for exhibitors and product innovations) and the Networking Plaza (networking/ matchmaking). The next events, MEDICA 2021 and COMPAMED 2021, will be held as a hybrid event next year. The hybrid concept consists of combining live platforms for professional visitors to the Düsseldorf trade fair centre and digital offers.
The MEDICA, the world’s leading medical trade fair held in Düsseldorf, was one of the very first events across all industries to offer young companies in their founding phase special programme formats to present their concepts many years ago. It has subsequently become the international number one for health start-ups too. The creative and predominantly digitally driven start-up scene will be the centre of attention once again at MEDICA 2020 (run time: 16 to 19 November). This is because, following the Corona pandemic, mobile and easily applicable solutions for linking the actors in the healthcare system have become even more important.
Globally, no sector has been placed under the magnifying glass more than the healthcare sector due to the Corona pandemic. Hospitals, outpatient clinics, practice-based physicians and care facilities have experienced a sudden increased demand for medical and laboratory technology, a wide variety of medical products, digital health applications and, most of all, personal protective equipment. Under these conditions, the plans for the world’s biggest medical trade fair MEDICA 2020 and the number one trade fair for suppliers of the medical technology industry, COMPAMED 2020, held in parallel, are revving up to full throttle. Both events will take place from 16 to 19 November in Düsseldorf – closely interlinked with extensive digital offers and services.
