Balance Report MEDICA/COMPAMED 2020
It would have once again been the world's largest trade fair for medical technology - the Medica in Düsseldorf. Content of the trade fair: devices for medical imaging, devices for therapeutic purposes and, last but not least, Covid-19 in focus: laboratory technology. However it turned out differently: the organizers of the trade fair and the manufacturers of the high-tech exhibits could only come together virtually - the understanding for this was most probably nowhere greater than in the community of the medical industry - and therefore the first virtual MEDICA and COMPAMED was a huge success.
The medical technology and medical device trade fair Medica is considered to be the trade platform for everything related to health technology, laboratory equipment and physiotherapy. Trade visitors came from over 170 countries with the intention to invest - the healthcare market is currently growing, especially in the emerging markets. Big markets, small products - because a large part of the novelties is driven by miniaturization, in addition to artificial intelligence and digitization in general.
By tradition, every January the boot Dusseldorf opens its doors to water sports enthusiasts. From fishhooks to 30-meter yachts – anything that can float on or under water is presented and offered for sale. The industry will have generated an estimated 2.16 billion euros in sales in 2019 – 3% more than in the previous year. However, the mood in the water sports industry is not as positive as it was one year ago – manufacturers and retailers are expecting growth to cease – if not even decline in the near future. The boot in Dusseldorf wants to prevent this by offering top-products.
