From 18 to 21 November we attended MEDICA 2019, in Düsseldorf. We were at the joint booth for the industry association medways e.V. in the world’s largest trade fair for the medical sector.
Record Number of Exhibitors and Visitors
This year the trade fair broke its own record once again with around 5,500 exhibitors and 121,000 visitors. About 170 different countries gathered at the No. 1 platform for international business. Many visitors came by oncgnostics’ booth to learn about our latest developments.
“For us, MEDICA is the most important trade fair of the year. This is where the industry comes together, where we make and maintain important contacts. As exhibitors, we are able to introduce ourselves, and we are very happy to use our own booth for meetings. At the same time, it is always worth taking a tour around the fair to get up to date,” says Dr Alfred Hansel, oncgnostics’ Managing Director, describing his impressions.
Pitch at COMPAMED
Simultaneously to MEDICA, COMPAMED, the trade fair for medical suppliers, took place. Our Head of Business Development & Licensing, Dr Peter Haug, accepted the invitation of IVAM, the professional association for microtechnology, and gave a sales pitch at the High-tech for Medical Devices forum.
“Oncgnostics GmbH is not only a manufacturer of reliable and innovative devices for cancer diagnostics: It is also of interest as a development partner to other pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies that would like to develop reliable tests based on epigenetic markers for new indications with us. Moreover, thanks to our strategic partnership with GeneoDx, a subsidiary of the Chinese SINOPHARM Group, we are also able to offer high-volume orders,” summarises Dr Peter Haug.
