BULMEDICA 2024 will be hosted as a face-to-face trade fair between currently-being-discussed dates. Inter Expo Center will not feature Covid-19 safety measures due to the removal of the country's coronavirus restrictions as a result of the improved pandemic situation. Due to the same cause, the country at present does not feature travel limitations.
A Brief Overview of BULMEDICA
BULMEDICA has a strong reputation in the medical fields around Europe as a first-rate meeting point between specialists and experts across different disciplines. The international trade fair is an effective procurement platform and buyers can see the next generation of innovations under one roof. The Health Ministry and the Bulgarian Medical Association are major supporters of the trade fair and sponsor editions.
Why Your Visit Is Worth It?
If you’re looking to break into new European markets with less competition from brands, then you must make your way to BULMEDICA. The trade show is prestigious, but also smaller compared to other international trade shows of its kind. This way you get to shine and get a quick return on investment. The majority of visitors are there to perform market research and find new suppliers. The statistics for last edition are more than great:
- 220+ international exhibitors
- 13,800+ international trade visitors
- 56 countries
- 280+ innovations from medicine and dental medicine
- 65+ new exhibiting companies
- 980+ brands
- Business Guide Today, with 10,000 copies in circulation, containing all the news from BULMEDICA and BULDENTAL.
BULMEDICA has been going on for a long time. The very first edition took place back in 1965 and since the beginning has been a very important trade show for the region. Today, it’s the best way for exhibitors to gain access to South Eastern Europe. BULMEDICA takes place once every year at Inter Expo Centre in Sofia, Bulgaria, around spring and summer. BULMEDICA is co-held with the premier dental show in Eastern Europe, BULDENTAL, for dental equipment, techniques, materials, and consumables. Together they create incredible market synergy.
Editions offer a good mix of support programming from top organisations like the Bulgarian Red Cross and experts, and a large product portfolio. You have every major product group under one roof – medical tools, pharmaceutical products, orthopaedics, rehabilitation and restorative treatment, ophthalmological equipment and supplies, sterilization and disinfection, and laboratory equipment and furniture. Exhibitors will also hold company presentations and demonstrations in order to attract interested buyers.
BULMEDICA receives generous support from the Bulgarian Medical Association, the Bulgarian Dental Association, the Union of Dental Technicians in Bulgaria, the Bulgarian Pharmaceutical Union and the Association of Dental Dealers in Bulgaria.
BULMEDICA was also one of the few trade shows to be able to take place physically during the early months of the pandemic. The live show tackled the unique challenges posed by the pandemic in terms of patient care. The main theme of the trade show was “Don't delay your treatment” as the biggest movement in the medical field was disease prevention.
Diabetes prevention is also front and centre as one of the most widely spread conditions that affect communities right now. The National Diabetes Association presents an online and offline program with self-help groups such as “Lose Weight Boldly”.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
The exhibitor list includes a variety of brands such as Jadu Oral Healthy Care, Axis Bulgaria, SILICATCHIM, Hygiene Medical Industry Co., and Klintensiv. Together, they represent the full portfolio of related medical supplies and technologies. The majority of exhibitors provide the latest in dental tools, materials & supplies; dental instruments, equipment & clinical and office furniture, medical devices, equipment & hospital furniture; dental technician tools, materials & supplies, and medical instruments.
Because you have the entirety of the value chain present, you have trade visitors coming from all related fields. Professionals work in human medicine, dental medicine, public hospitals, private hospitals, dental technology, traders and distributors, laboratories, emergency, rehabilitation, and pharmaceuticals.
Most trade visitors are Bulgarian, while the rest fly in from Greece, Turkey, the Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia, Kosovo, Cyprus, Belgium, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Israel, the USA, China, Canada, and South Korea. The main reason why visitors attend is to learn about new products and have some capacity when it comes to making purchases.
Additional Value of Attending
BULMEDICA is a highly intensive B2B networking platform, which provides exhibitors with a lot of opportunities to generate qualified sales leads, but we also have to talk about the information programme that features top speakers from the field of medicine. Visitors can hear from specialists in cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, dermatology, urology, pulmonology, obstetrics, and gynaecology. Lectures and demonstrations are held at the special seminar hall.
The majority of the topics revolved around the stressors of modern life and their impact on a person’s health. For instance, cardiovascular disease is negatively affected by fear, stress and complicated communication with hospitals. In turn, what makes diabetics more at risk and what measures are necessary to take.
The lecture programme features distinguished names like Dr. Emira Pavlova (Dermatology), Acad. Prof. Ivona Daskalova (Endocrinology), Prof. Ivo Petrov (Cardiology), Dr. Alexander Simidchiev (Pulmonology), Prof. Borislav Vladimirov (Gastroenterology), Prof. Tanya Timeva (AH and Reproductive Medicine), Dr. Zhivko Siromahov (Urology). In the past, Dr. Nikolay Sharkov, President of the Bulgarian Dental Association, represented the Dental Guild.
