Industry Profile

COMPAMED was first held in 1992 and runs every year as a complimentary event for MEDICA – the largest medical trade fair across the entire world. Where MEDICA had a much broader and all-reaching approach to the medical industry, COMPAMED has specialized within the fields of product development, medical devices and medical supply. If we are to look at the product groups, we see HEPA filters, hose systems, disinfection equipment, ECG electrodes, elastomers, analyzers, angioplasty, diagnostic kits, diaphragm pumps, oxygen supply systems, linear motors and the list goes on and on. The fair’s main function is to facilitate cross-border transactions and build client lists for suppliers and manufacturers.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

It’s hard to compile a full profile of the visitors coming to COMPAMED, especially given the full influence of MEDICA over visitors. Nevertheless, you can expect production managers, heads of research and development departments, engineers and technicians for R&D, technical procurement managers, medical technology exhibitors of MEDICA, design engineers, process engineers and packaging specialists. Looking at the nationalities, we see over 62 countries represented with the main groups from Europe like the UK, the Netherlands, France, Spain. One of the biggest draws in terms of programming is the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH FORUM, which runs a series of talks and lectures on the ever-increasing role of microtechnology in medicine and future applications. Another big topic that has taken over everyone’s imagination is the potential of wearables for better patient care.
