The Rehacare show kicks off next week and organisers reckon it will break records where visitor numbers are concerned.
From Wednesday, the international rehabilitation and care industry will see six exhibition halls filled out by 960 exhibitors from 40 countries.
Horst Giesen, global portfolio director of Health and Medical Technologies, Messe Düsseldorf, said: “Rehacare 2018 will thus be the largest event in the long series of rehabilitation trade fairs we have been organising at our Düsseldorf location since 1977.
“We are registering historic highs in all currently available trade fair key figures, in the number of exhibitors and countries, in the rented exhibition space and also in international participation.
“Far more than every second company (57%) is coming from outside Germany this year.”
“Almost all” leading manufacturers of medical aids will be represented at Rehacare 2018, the show claims.
Wheelchairs, travel devices and walking aids will have a strong presence in the Düsseldorf exhibition halls with around 600 suppliers exhibiting mobility products.
