Newswise — The planning for the world’s leading medical trade show MEDICA 2022 and for COMPAMED 2022, the number 1 trade show for suppliers to the medical technology industry, has entered the next phase. The current number of exhibitor registrations indicates that participation will exceed last year’s results (MEDICA 2021: 3,033; COMPAMED 2021: 490). Exhibitors can still register online for all segments at www.medica.de/2330 and www.compamed.de/2330 MEDICA and COMPAMED will take place simultaneously from 14 – 17 November 2022 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.
“The medical technology industry currently needs MEDICA and COMPAMED as strong platforms for international exchange, collaboration and business. Because the market is moving. In certain areas, the pandemic is increasing demand, for example in point-of-care diagnostics. In addition, companies see an increasing need to work together with their supply and production partners to ensure supply capacity at a time of sharply rising prices and scarce components,” said Christian Grosser, Director Health & Medical Technologies at Messe Düsseldorf. “Networking internationally also helps to open new markets. You can broaden the foundation for your own business while alleviating the effects of obstacles, uncertainties or even sanctions that may apply to certain national markets.”Read:What Is a Mental Health Coach?
Easy access for startup scene
When it comes to responding to challenges and seizing new opportunities, startups from all countries have always acted exceptionally fast. They have been participating en masse in MEDICA and COMPAMED for years, both with their own stands and in joint stands. “Especially for new exhibitors, our MEDICA START-UP PARK offers an attractive opportunity to participate – optionally available with a talk time at the always well-attended MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM,” said Dr. Claudio Bucchi, Senior Project Manager at Messe Dusseldorf.
One is the fledgling company dermanostic, which offers remote medical consultations with doctors for skin diseases based on an app and patient-supplied photos of the affected areas. dr. Patrick Lang, the founder of dermanostic, took part in the MEDICA START-UP PARK in 2021 and is excited about this year’s event: “We were very happy with the MEDICA START-UP PARK. Not only have we been able to exchange ideas with other start-ups, but we have also made many international contacts and received direct feedback from a professional audience who tried our app. We are excited to discover what will evolve from this into MEDICA 2022.”Read:3D structures of almost 200 million proteins have finally been predicted | Science & Tech News
In addition to stand presentations, start-ups and scale-ups (companies in the next development phase) will again provide interesting insights into their current projects in various pitch and presentation formats. For example, the MEDICA DISRUPT sessions, the 11th MEDICA START-UP COMPETITION and the 14th Healthcare Innovation World Cup are program highlights at the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM. In total, approximately 120 speakers and more than 100 startups will be present to discuss digital innovations for mobile and connected healthcare of the future.
Matching formats: trade fair, forums and conferences
Further forums integrated into the individual thematic segments of the show provide a connection to the product innovations and best practices of their application in daily medical practice. In addition to the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM, these are the MEDICA HEALTH IT FORUM, the MEDICA TECH FORUM, the MEDICA LABMED FORUM and the MEDICA ECON FORUM, initiated by Messe Düsseldorf in collaboration with the German health insurer Techniker Krankenkasse (TK).
The focus segments of the MEDICA fair are: Laboratory Technology and Diagnostics, Medical Technology and Electromedicine (Imaging and Diagnostics/Medical Equipment and Devices), Consumer Goods and Consumables, Physiotherapy and Orthopedic Technology, and IT Systems and IT Solutions.Read:Dr. Hananel Holzer joins The Fertility Partners team as Medical Director, Third-Party Reproduction and Education
The MEDICA conference program also provides a substantive link to the trend themes of the market and the trade fair. An example is the 45th German Hospital Day, a leading event for top management of German hospitals, which will be held face-to-face again this year. Two other conferences (in English) will appeal to a predominantly international audience: the Conference on Disaster and Military Medicine DiMiMED, and the MEDICA MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE for international professional sports medicine and sports science.
Must-attentive event for supply industry trend updates
To keep abreast of trends in the preparatory development or production phases of the medical technology industry, COMPAMED is and remains the event to attend. Here, supplier companies present a wealth of high-tech and service solutions. Components, microsystems technology, materials processing and coatings, additive manufacturing/ 3D printing, manufacturing technology and machinery, packaging and services are important segments that are also reflected in the programs of the two integrated specialist forums: the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH FORUM, organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Association and the COMPAMED SUPPLIERS FORUM administered by the trade journal Devicemed.
Demand for micro-components and processes in the context of digitization and patient-centric diagnostics remains high, as they hold the key to ultra-precise manufacturing and provide the basis for lightweight, portable and interconnected devices. “The trend is clearly towards miniaturization and comprehensive solutions,” says Ralf Friedrich, Sales Engineer at Camozzi Automation GmbH. Camozzi has been participating in COMPAMED since 2013 and uses the event as a platform for international contacts. The company is active worldwide and specializes in the development and production of components, systems and technologies for drive and fluid technology, which are used in, among other things, medical laboratory equipment.
In their globally unique combination, MEDICA 2022 and COMPAMED 2022 will once again reflect the full value and process chains of medical technology and showcase a comprehensive range of medical products, devices and instruments. In 2021, 46,000 trade visitors took part in both events (73% international participation).
The industry portals https://www.medica-tradefair.com and https://www.compamed-tradefair.com offer a wide range of digital services for preparing and organizing effective participation (e.g. interactive room plans), for networking with companies and also to keep abreast of current industry trends and innovations from the dynamically evolving world of medical technology.
