MEDICA Dusseldorf 2018, the renowned forum for medicine, is scheduled on 12 - 15 November. A productive combination of a trade fair and congress, it has a far-reaching impact. MEDICA 2018 will highlight the innovations brought by promising start-ups - from early detection of skin cancer, through solutions for monitoring baby’s health to a smart inhaler application for asthma patients.

Over 60% of MEDICA Dusseldorf's estimated 82,000 visitors will come from abroad. This leads to limited hotel availability close to the event dates, especially near Messe Dusseldorf. Participants are encouraged to reserve their hotel for MEDICA 2018 in Dusseldorf as soon as possible.
