Medica+Compamed to Take Place as Planned with Increased Digital Offers
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 16–19 November in Dusseldorf/DE – closely interlinked with extensive digital offers and services.
Within the scope of COMPAMED 2020, suppliers of the medical technology industry are showcasing themselves along with their development and manufacturing expertise. Despite the significant ramifications that COVID-19 has had on the global economy, on the whole they believe that the future is bright.
According to a member survey carried out by the IVAM Association for Microtechnology, 90 % of the companies believe that there will be opportunities for new applications of their technology in medical technology and the healthcare industry following the pandemic. This is because in critical situations such as the one we’re currently in, sensors for ventilation equipment and medical measuring technology are needed, to give two examples, in addition to miniaturised and mobile systems for fast diagnostics, according to the IVAM. Miniaturised components and procedures in digitalisation are also trending currently. They are the key to ultra-precision manufacturing and also build the foundations for the lightweight, wearable and linked devices that are experiencing even greater demand than before during the Corona period.
In 2019, MEDICA and COMPAMED brought in a total of 121 369 visitors and over 6000 exhibitors.
