Canadian German Chamber of Industry and Commerce Inc.

Canadian Participation at MEDICA 2016

Canada at MEDICA, Düsseldorf (November 14 - 17, 2016)

Toronto, October 18, 2016 – Largest Canadian Participation Ever

An unprecedented 62 Canadian medical technology companies (10 more than in 2015), take a total of 10,366 square feet of net exhibition space, 15.2% over 2015.  They show products as varied as rapid tests, orthopaedic as well as communications and medical devices.

In return for a number of matchmaking initiatives with organizations from around the world, 18 (+38.5%) new exhibitors are going to be present. Another initiative is the networking reception organized by the Federal Government and supported by the Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec provincial governments on November 15, 2016 at the hall 16 Canadian Pavilion. Canadian exhibitors and visitors will have the ample opportunity to showcase their latest in technology and product capabilities.

Both Alberta and Ontario as well as the federal government continue to be represented with information booths within the Canadian Pavilion in hall 16. Ontario once again has the largest exhibitor group with 28 exhibitors, with British Columbia coming in second with 22 and Quebec with 9 exhibitors. Over half of the Canadian exhibitors are located in halls 3 (16) and 16 (20).

Three Product Specific Canadian Pavilions

Canada has 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 exhibit solutions at the show.

MEDICA Bursting Out of its Seams

Around 5,850 companies from around 70 countries registered for MEDICA / COMPAMED 2016. The annual four-day event is bursting out of the seams and once again occupies 17 of Messe Düsseldorf’s 19 exhibition halls (the remaining two are occupied by COMPAMED, running concurrently with MEDICA). International participation once again accounts for well over 65% of the space booked reflecting and underlining MEDICA’s role and appeal as the key 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. It features the right balance of quality and quantity in terms of supply and demand.

The MEDICA 2017 dates have been set for November 13 - 16, 2017.
