Who Are You Going to Meet?
DMEA is a cross-sector meeting point. The target audience is IT specialists and professionals in the field of medicine like doctors, nurses, technicians and managers from hospitals and nursing. However, the trade fair appeals to a variety of other experts working in the fields of politics, science and research. The modernisation of the medical industry is a complex process that requires knowledge and know-how from a lot of related fields.
The trade fair remains firmly in service of the German market. Only a small portion of exhibitors and visitors are foreign nationals. On the exhibitor side, there are companies from Switzerland, the UK, the US, Canada, Finland, France, Austria, the Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, Türkiye and Israel. A couple of the big names you can expect to see on the exhibition floor include Doctolib, m.Doc, medatixx, Smartify IT Solutions and Meierhofer.
Roughly 88% of all trade visitors are based in Germany with the remainder travelling from all over Europe with strongest numbers from Switzerland, Austria, Netherlands, France, Finland and the UK. In recent years, DMEA has positioned itself as an emerging global event with growing visitor numbers from Asia (China, India, South Korea) and North America (Canada and the US).
Going by professional backgrounds, IT professionals have the highest concentration. In general, 8 out of 10 visitors are involved in the decision making process or have real purchasing power. You meet with project and product managers, board members, managing director, business managers, sales representatives, physicians, administration and developers.
