As the No. 1 international medical trade fair worldwide, MEDICA reflects the status of the medical market. Every year, about 5,000 exhibitors from 70 nations present the complete range of new products, systems and services for high-quality in-patient and out-patient care to about 130,000 visitors from around the globe. Over 70% of the MEDICA exhibitors usually come from nations other than Germany, including more than 400 companies from the U.S. As in the past, Messe Düsseldorf North America will again organize two U.S. Pavilions at MEDICA 2016. Congresses, various theme parks, forums and numerous special events will complement the exhibits.

Held parallel with MEDICA, COMPAMED is the leading international event for suppliers to the medical manufacturing sector. Over 700 exhibitors from 37 countries showcase high-tech solutions for the development and production of medical device technology to about 18,000 visitors. A special feature will again be the U.S. Pavilion organized by Messe Düsseldorf North America.

MEDICAL FAIR ASIA is the region’s most established platform for the medical and health care sectors, featuring prominent medical and health care players from around the world. Reinforcing the global appeal and market relevance of the event, MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2016 is expected to attract strong participation from some 1,000 exhibitors from about 45 countries, including 20 national pavilions and country groups. Visitor attendance is expected to increase by 50% compared to the last staging in 2014, with 15,000 trade visitors coming from across ASEAN and the Asia Pacific region.

MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA, 3rd Manufacturing Processes for Medical Technology Exhibition and Conference, will again be held concurrently with MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2016.
