Medica/Compamed 2011 with record number of exhibitors

Both of these events report a record number of participants, with 4,571 exhibitors from 62 different countries registered for Medica 2011. Meanwhile, Compamed, which has taken place in parallel to Medica since 1992 (Compamed runs from 16 - 18 November 2011) boasts 627 exhibitors from 40 different countries this year. In total, both fairs will once again fill all 19 halls at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre. The MedTech industry remains buoyant
Messe Düsseldorf cites recent information from trade associations in saying that German manufacturers of medical technology have seen business remain buoyant, in spite of a slight "cooling off” anticipated for the second half of the year. For the 2011 fiscal year as a whole they expect growth of six percent, with total sales amounting to EUR 21.1 billion. "We are able to compensate for the health sector cuts being made in some countries due to the global economic and financial crisis with growth in sales in other countries and regions, such as Asia and North America, for example”, explains Jan Wolter, head of the Spectaris trade association Medical Technology, highlighting the manufacturers' very high export ratio (65%). German vendors are striving to boost domestic business by offering innovative service packages to set themselves apart from the competition and thus build long term customer loyalty, he added. Compamed in halls 8a and 8b
Compamed 2011 will take place in parallel to Medica 2011. At one of the leading international trade fairs for the suppliers' market in medical manufacturing, which will take place from 16 - 18 November 2011, some 627 exhibitors from 40 different countries will present a broad range of new materials, components, intermediate products and services including complete contract manufacturing for the medical technology industry. Two integral technical forums, organised by the professional association for microtechnology, IVAM, (in Hall 8a) and the trade magazine Devicemed (in Hall 8b) will round off the show with a number of lectures, many of which will be in English.   Further information:
