Canada at MEDICA in Düsseldorf



Canadians Take More Space than Ever


Out of 52 Canadian Companies that registered for MEDICA 2014, 51 managed to secure space at the show, a stunning success considering the overbooking situation of the event. It also shows that the world wants more Canada at MEDICA.


A staggering total of 8,525 square feet of net exhibition space, 9.6% over 2013 and the best result ever, will accommodate products as varied as rapid tests, orthopaedic devices as well as communications and medical technology.


With 18 new exhibitors, a number of matchmaking initiatives with partner organizations from Germany, Belgium and Israel and a networking reception on November 13, 2014 at the hall 16 Canadian Pavilion, the upcoming event will offer Canadian exhibitors and visitors ample opportunities to showcase their latest in technology and product capabilities.


Ontario will once again have the largest exhibitor group among Canadians (24), with British Columbia coming in as an impressive second with 14 exhibitors and Quebec with 9 exhibitors. The bulk of Canadian exhibitors are located in halls 3 (14) and 16 (21).


Three Product Specific Canadian Pavilions


Canada will have pavilions in the electro medicine/medical technology (hall 16), the laboratory equipment/diagnostics (hall 3) and the disposables (hall 5 and 6) sections of the show. These pavilions are organized by the Messe Düsseldorf (Canada) office in Toronto. They offer smaller or first time exhibitors turnkey and/or full service packages at the show.


MEDICA Bursting Out of its Seams


A record 5,735 companies from more than 70 countries around the world registered for MEDICA/ COMPAMED 2014. The annual four-day event is bursting out of the seams and will once again occupy 17 of Messe Düsseldorf’s 19 exhibition halls (the remaining two will be occupied by the three-day COMPAMED show). International participation has once again grown, reflecting and underlining MEDICA’s role and appeal as the meeting place for the global medical business communities.


No other medical trade fair in the world compares in terms of size, scope of exhibits, international exposure and in its role as a global marketing platform to MEDICA. The industry continues to put its money on MEDICA in 2014. It features the right balance of quality and quantity in term of supply and demand. In 2013 some 132,000 trade visitors attended the show.
