Michael Eppler is the managing director of Clap Tzu. For him, MEDICA is primarily a place where he and his company can meet new customers and dealers. "At MEDICA, I appreciate the exchange with others; there are always many inspirations." Eppler believes that holistic treatment concepts consisting of several products will become increasingly important in the future, rather than focusing on individual products.

MEDICA is visited by people from all nations. For Yunus Emre Çelikten from MEGASAN, this is the reason to visit the fair. Because for him it is important to find like-minded people in the field of surgical equipment. In medical technology, the topics around digitalization and online platforms will increase in importance, he thinks.
