MEDICA is one of the largest medical trade fairs worldwide. It takes place annually in Düsseldorf, Germany. Some 5500 exhibitors at MEDICA and nearly 800 at COMPAMED ensured a new record in participation. According to the Trade Fair’s press release, more than 90 per cent of the 121,000 trade visitors have decision-making authority. Two-thirds of the visitors came from abroad, representing some 170 countries.
We visited the fair this year for the first time. Our focus was on app development projects that provide services to seniors. Topos Media is actively exploring business opportunities for mobile applications in the senior care market in the EU. The natural location for this was the Trade Fair’s Startup hall and the Health IT Forum. Both venues provided stages for many fascinating presentations on innovative applications digital media technologies and pioneering software products.
A special highlight of MEDICA every year is the Medica App Competition, the competition for the world’s best health app solution.
35,000 visitors of MEDICA are especially interested in this topic and forums like the MEDICA HEALTH IT FORUM or the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM as well as the MEDICA App COMPETITION. More than 5,000 exhibitors from 66 countries will be showcasing their products and services at MEDICA 2018. Clearly structured, with each market segment assigned its own exhibition hall, MEDICA covers the entire range of medical equipment needs in practices and hospitals.
