For those in the medical device industry, November is usually the month of Medica. A wonderful exhibition, held in Dusseldorf, Germany, for the world’s manufacturers of medical devices. It’s 18 exhibition halls full of every device needed in a clinical setting – everything from a needle to an air ambulance!
Sadly because of the continuing effects of Covid, this year’s exhibition will be significantly reduced in scale. Many visitors are unable to travel from their individual countries to attend and others may choose to forego the visit this year for obvious and understandable reasons for reducing risk of infection.
As a result, EMS Physio will not be attending as an exhibitor. This is such a shame as we have attended annually since 1997 and are proud supporters of Medica. We understand that many of our usual global customers, visitors and contacts will not be attending the show. However we are optimistic for Medica 2022!
If you are attending though, it would be great to see you as I will be visiting the show on Wednesday 17th November. If we can have the opportunity, it would be great to meet with you and catch up on news from the world of physiotherapy and EMS Physio! Please do contact me to arrange a time to meet.
The good news is we will be attending Arab Health in Dubai in January 2022. We are part of the UK pavilion and look forward to stepping back onto the exhibition stage and also showcasing our new and exciting product developments. Suffice to say it will be ‘stimulating’!
Stay safe in the meantime and let’s all continue to use digital technology to keep in touch and we can look forward to better days when we meet again as a family in the world of physical therapy!
Hope to see you at Medica 2021 and looking forward to your visit at Arab Health 2022.
