The COMPAMED trade fair returns this year to bring high-tech solution providers in the medical technology industry together. With the opportunity to showcase their capabilities, experts in microtechnology, manufacturing equipment, sensory technology and more will network with potential new partners in building the future of medical technology.

As one of the biggest medical technology trade shows in Europe, international visitors from the key global markets are expected to attend, with professionals ranging from R&D experts, technical procurement managers, process and design engineers, and qualification and validation specialists.

This year, COMPAMED will take place between 14-17 November in Düsseldorf, Germany. International speakers and leading experts will host forums, with events including the Suppliers Forum by DeviceMed and the High-tech Forum by IVAM, as well as the Innovation Forum, in which leading experts will discuss trending topics in the medical device industry.

In addition to a diverse range of exhibitor stands, COMPAMED also offers “matchmaking” lounges for exhibitors to meet and network using an intelligent digital algorithm that makes contact suggestions. Visitors will have the chance to meet 687 component manufacturers, material experts, software specialists, and finished product providers all under one roof.
