MEDICA Business Center and Database

Almost everyone doing business in the medical field and each visitor to the MEDICA international trade fair knows and values it. For many, it has become a veritable institution in the worldwide medical device technology business:

The MEDICA BUSINESS CENTER; the world's largest meeting point for the medical device technology industry. Originally created more than 20 years ago as a special service for MEDICA exhibitors and visitors by SCHILLINGER (BDU), Laudenbach, and Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, , the MEDICA BUSINESS CENTER today is to be found - as it befits its status - in the most prestigious location of the entire fair, in the Mall at the North Entrance (EN01).

Business Contacts / B2B
“Contacts for Contracts” - for years the MEDICA Business Center (fair entrance North, EN01) is a well-known and successful service for visitors and exhibitors at MEDICA, providing a forum for business contacts in the fields of medical technology/ scientific instruments/pharmaceutical products. In 2005 this service is again offered by SCHILLINGER (BDU), a consultant specialist in medical technology/scientific instruments/healthcare, in cooperation with Messe Düsseldorf GmbH.

Visitors to the Business Center are supplied with all information required to find specific business partners quickly. All offers and requests for business contacts are registered and classified by products, representation, export/import, licensing, know-how, services, etc. The visitors’ offers and/or requests are registered at the MEDICA Business Center in the same way and free of charge. Expected are about 1,000 new business contacts from more than 80 countries all over the world being made available to the visitors during the largest market place for B2B contacts in the world of medical technology and healthcare. Among others visitors will find numerous opportunities for merger and acquisition at the MEDICA Business Center. Professional and experienced consultants will assist you during the fair and answer any questions concerning the search for business partners, new market developments and trends, etc.

After the fair, SCHILLINGER (BDU) compiles the MEDICA Business Report which summarizes all business contacts collected at the MEDICA Business Center and subsequently is available for purchase in either book form or as an online version with an individual access. The MEDICA Business Report 2005/2006 will be available about 4 weeks after the fair.











In addition, SCHILLINGER (BDU)’s GS-MEDBASE database provides access to an additional 10,000 business contacts worldwide in the fields of medical technology/scientific instruments/healthcare during the Fair. Professional and experienced consultants of SCHILLINGER (BDU) will assist visitors of the MEDICA Business Center during the fair.
