By always offering innovations and updating existing program formats, the internationally leading medical trade fair MEDICA in Düsseldorf, Germany, has been successful for over half a century and always gives its trade visitors from all over the world a good overview of all the relevant trends and innovations in the healthcare sector. The best example of this is the MEDICA INNOVATION FORUM (the successor event to the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM), which will be held right in the center of the “Digital Health” sphere of MEDICA this year. MEDICA will take place from November 11 – 14, 2024 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

“This is where we discuss the most important topics for the future, from the Internet of Things to robotics, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and digital twins as well as mobile health and medical wearables, 3D printing and solutions for the hospital of the future. Because digital innovations are not limited to optimized connections between all healthcare players, the forum will focus on the digital transformation of the healthcare industry in its entirety. After all, start-up presentations recently already clearly reflected this wider scope of content. The popular pitch competitions will remain a fundamental part of the program”, explained Christian Grosser, Director of MEDICA at Messe Düsseldorf.

Renowned experts will give inspiring talks at the MEDICA INNOVATION to initiate professional discussion among the over 8,000 forum participants expected to attend. One of the speakers will be Prof. Stephen Gilbert of the Dresden University of Technology. He recently called for LLM-based generative chat tools such as ChatGPT and MedPaLM to be approved as medical devices. Robotics expert Lorenzo Masia, Heidelberg, and André Brauers, Global Head of Immersive and Digital Education Solutions at Siemens Healthineers, will also contribute topics for discussion.

Dr. Sonja Sulzmaier, a Managing Partner at Navispace, is one of the organizers of the MEDICA INNOVATION FORUM. She is also the Chairwoman for Start-Ups and Enterprise Formation of the German Association for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses (BVMW) and knows what’s important: “The degree of innovation is the decisive factor for us when selecting the program and speakers.” The degree of innovation is also an important criterion when evaluating submissions for the 13th MEDICA START-UP COMPETITION and the 16th HEALTHCARE INNOVATION WORLD CUP.
