MEDICA, the World Forum for Medicine, is a leading, global, medical industry trade fair. More than 5,000 manufacturers attend the event each year to show off their latest products and services at the trade fair complex in Düsseldorf. Thousands of visitors from more than seventy countries attend to learn about and see the latest in medical technology, digital medicine, laboratory technology, diagnostics, orthopedic technology, and information and communication technology, including health-related services. In addition to the exhibits, forums on top issues are part of the established offering. Each year the MEDICA is held together with COMPAMED, the international trade fair for med tech suppliers. As it did in 2018, the initiative HEALTH MADE IN GERMANY and Germany Trade & Invest will be present at a shared stand. This year the initiative will have a comprehensive informational program on the medical technology market in Germany and markets abroad.
