Savings Tips for Travel to Doozeldorf

Posted by Ryan Klemm on Tue, Oct 18, 2011 @ 11:33 AM

Our team finally got around to booking our airline tickets to Düsseldorf last week for the upcoming MEDICA & COMPAMED trade fairs.  Based upon the record number of 450+ US companies that will be participating at the show this year, the transatlantic air carriers are probably going to be packing us in during the month of November.  And despite having made this trip uncountable times, we always look forward to traveling over to Germany to provide our clients with the best trade show experience possible!

Also amusing to me is the time I got to Chicago O’Hare and Da Guy behind the check in counter stared back at me and said “dang ders sher alodda people gointa Doozeldorf disafternoon.” [Chicagospeak translation: Good gracious, I’ve observed that there are an unusually high number of our valued customers who are traveling this afternoon to Duesseldorf, Germany.]

pta2       So we all squeeze place ourselves into our seats next to the NFL Wide Receiver and behind the group of 18 squirrely and overly-excited high school exchange students, and off we go to enjoy our in-flight dinner of chicken or pasta and try and get a nap before hitting the ground running and starting a solid week of work, and over-nighting in tiny overpriced hotel  rooms.  
         

Of course I jest, sort of, but truth is – heading to Duesseldorf needn’t be some overpriced chore.  With just a little bit of advance planning, you’ll find that getting there, staying there, and yes – enjoying the local culture after the show closes each evening can be rather enjoyable!

BOOK YOUR AIRFARE

Reaching Düsseldorf by air from the United States and Canada is simple.  The city’s Rhein-Ruhr International Airport is one of Germany’s busiest and most modern.  Nearly 80 airlines offer more than 1,500 flight connections each week from around the world.  Numerous direct flights operate to or from the United States daily.  SAVINGS TIPS:  Shop around, book early, select discount carriers, or book flights that require a transfer at a hub airport. 

BOOK YOUR HOTEL

In general, the earlier you book a hotel room, the better.  Messe Düsseldorf North America's official travel agency is able to provide you with comprehensive and competitively priced hotel arrangements for your trip to Düsseldorf.  SAVINGS TIPS:  Hotels outside of Duesseldorf tend to be less expensive than those within the city itself.  B&B’s (known in Germany as Pensionen) tend to be less expensive than hotels.  And sometimes private residences or corporate apartments are available for rent that can accommodate groups of three or more persons. 

LOCAL TRAVEL

The Düsseldorf subway tramlines U78 and U79, and bus lines 722 and 896, provide service directly to the fairgrounds.  The fairgrounds can also be easily be reached by taxi or private vehicle.  If you plan to drive, take the A44 highway westward from the A3 highway and follow Messe Düsseldorf’s own access road to its large-scale parking lots, equipped with 20,000 parking spaces.  Complimentary shuttle buses will take you from the parking lots to all entrances and back within a few short minutes.  SAVINGS TIPS:  Your exhibitor pass and/or your admission ticket doubles as your ticket for travel within Düsseldorf’s regional public transportation network!

Messe Düsseldorf and the VRR / VRS (Rhine-Ruhr and Rhine-Sieg Regional Public Transportation Network) offer exhibitors and visitors the option of taking the subway, tram, bus, or regional train (2nd class), throughout the entire VRR (and depending on the show, VRS) zones at no additional cost.

As you can see, there are many ways to get there, stay there, and travel around.  Perhaps some of you may have tips and pointers of your own – we’d welcome your comments and tips to share!

Dusting Off an Old Chestnut

Posted by Ryan Klemm on Fri, Sep 9, 2011 @ 13:14 PM

This article was originally posted in September 2009, and is now back by popular demand as the fall trade show season kicks into high gear!

System Stand or:
How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Booth

You know as surely as the swallows return to San Juan Capistrano every spring and the Chicago Cubs don't make it to the World Series in the fall (sigh), a common discussion that arises every year has to do with a company's approach to its booth setup options at our trade shows in Düsseldorf.

The space has been reserved, flights have been booked, and hotels have been selected. Now it's time to start thinking about how you'd like to present your company's public face at the show.

So you say you have a nifty pop-up display that unfolds out a plastic case? That's a good start. Just need some carpet and maybe an information counter and a bar stool or two to complete the ensemble, right? Looks just fine at the U.S. trade shows, why not in Düsseldorf?

You might want to think twice.

After all, you've made this huge investment to participate at this European trade show, and you want to make sure that you put your best foot forward. But in reality what looks fine against a backdrop of pipe and drape in the U.S. might in reality stand out for entirely different reasons at a German trade show.

In a nutshell: Europeans don't do "pop-up" like companies from North America do. Hence, you don't see much of it over there. In fact, the European approach to exhibiting trends more elaborate and more formal than here. The prevalent view is that the booth is by virtue and extension of the company - the place of business for the week, conducted in as formal a business setting as the show floor permits.

That said, the generally accepted minimum standard of booth design is that referred to by Messe Düsseldorf as a "system stand". Priced by the square meter, these elemental stands consist of panel walls, carpet, table and chairs, company sign above the booth, spot lights and an electrical outlet. This simple concept allows the exhibitor to save on shipping costs (keep the pop-up at home and just send over some graphics) and still decorate and setup shop as you like.

And if you really, really dig your pop-up stand and still want to use it, by all means send it on over and set it up within the confines of your system stand!

Messe Düsseldorf North America can advise you on your booth options and prevailing trends in booth design. Let us know how we can assist you in making your participation at one of our shows the best it can be!

The Medical Market is Thriving – and MEDICA 2011 is Proof of it!

Posted by Anne Meerboth-Maltz on Mon, Aug 29, 2011 @ 16:22 PM

The global market for medical technology and medical devices has weathered the storm of the economic and financial crisis well and is now enjoying steady growth, with a current volume of about €300 billion. Although the supply structures and the financing situation of users of medical technology can vary a lot from one country to another, the market as a whole is characterized by a lively exchange of goods. More than half of the medical devices, products and instruments produced worldwide are made for export.

The manufacturers adapt flexibly to the different needs of the various continental and regional markets. While complex systems with a relatively high degree of innovation are called for in the European and North American market, there is a demand for more robust and easy to use devices in the emerging countries of Asia and Eastern Europe in order to promote the rapid and widespread modernization of hospitals and physicians’ practices.

  medica show floor

This highly dynamic and competitive international medical industry will again be represented this November at MEDICA 2011, the world's largest medical trade fair, held in Düsseldorf, Germany (November 16 – 19) where about 4,500 exhibitors have booked over 1.2 million square feet of exhibit space. It’s a huge event and you should be part of it!

And there is more: at the parallel held COMPAMED 2011, the leading international trade fair for the suppliers’ market in medical manufacturing, (November 16 – 18) approximately 600 exhibitors will cover the entire medical technology supply chain – from materials and components to systems and intermediate products as well as complete systems and services.

medica show floor   

Together, MEDICA and COMPAMED 2011 will occupy all 19 halls of the Düsseldorf fairgrounds to present the entire process chain and the entire range of medical products, devices and instruments.

Whether you’ve been there before or are thinking about going for the first time, MEDICA and COMPAMED are THE place to be if you want to stay competitive – at least this is what 137,000 of your colleagues think who visit these trade shows every year!

A Summer of Discontent? Not so Fast...

Posted by Ryan Klemm on Fri, Aug 12, 2011 @ 10:45 AM

Watching this summer’s nonstop political childish behavior wrangling and economic rollercoaster uncertainty unfold on both sides of the Atlantic would make a reasonable person think that the whole world’s unraveling at the seams.  With 24 hour cable-TV talking heads feeding us their nonstop personal opinions and endless electronic push notifications cranking out of our smart-phones feeding us every trivial byte of “news”, you’d think that modern civilization is on the verge of collapse.    covereyes  
I Just Can't Take it Anymore!  

Hardly.  Put it all aside, calm yourself, and take three deep breaths.  Better now?

Over the past months something remarkable has been occurring beneath the radar of the much-hyped nonsense that passes for news and politics nowadays.

 
2011 has stacked up as a remarkably positive year for U.S. companies seeking export markets and participating at Messe Duesseldorf’s trade shows.

Not withstanding the very positive results for US companies that have already participated at this year’s leading interpack and GIFA-METEC-THERMPROCESS-NEWCAST events in Germany, and Hospitalar in Brazil, record-breaking participation at the upcoming MEDICA and COMPAMED trade fairs in Düsseldorf this November will be realized.

MEDICA and COMPAMED will feature nearly 450 U.S.-based exhibitors occupying nearly 65,000 square feet of net exhibit space, more space back to back and side to side than would fill an entire US-football field!  Add in the participating companies from Canada and from Mexico at MEDICA and COMPAMED, and the show is the largest contingent of North-American based exhibitors at a medical industry event fair anywhere outside of the western hemisphere!

And just around the corner next spring:  the once-every-four-year drupa 2012 print-media trade will return to Düsseldorf for a whopping two-week stint, and where American companies will occupy about 2 football fields of space.

True, we’ve been saddled here with a sluggish economy and not enough jobs, but exports have proven to be an important way to grow business, put people to work, and stay competitive with growing international competition!  So instead of wringing our hands about cable’s predicted societal implosion, just turn off the television and reset your browser’s homepage to www.mdna.com in order to focus on the the positive, exciting things that U.S. innovators and exporters are proudly doing!

É boa pra caramba!

Posted by Ryan Klemm on Fri, Mar 11, 2011 @ 14:50 PM

The world renowned Carnival festivities of Brazil concluded last Tuesday at midnight, but in many ways the good times are continuing to roll in this massive country of over 193 million people.

Hospitalar, the 18th International Fair of Products, Equipment, Services and Technology for Hospitals, Laboratories, Pharmacies, Health Clinics and Medical Offices will return to the Brazilian metropolis of São Paulo (May 24-27, 2011), and already the indicators are present that this will medical industry trade show will break its own records!

Especially for companies based in the United States, Hospitalar has grown increasingly attractive over the past several years as more and more companies seek to get involved in Brazil and other important South American markets.  Already set to break last year’s high water mark, more American companies have signed up and will occupy more space than ever before at this “thermometer” of the health sector in Brazil.

Brazil’s healthcare sector represents over 8% of the country’s GDP.  In 2009, Brazilian imports of medical equipment and devices totaled around US$ 2.8 billion.  Around 43.2 million Brazilians are covered by health plans/insurance.  Additionally, there are reported to be 218,254 Health Services establishments, 6,733 hospitals and 17,911 medical laboratories in Brazil.  The budget of Brazil’s federal Health Ministry in 2010 was more than US$ 40 billion.

And growth in this field is only predicted to continue.  Expansion in this sector is not merely anecdotal:  just last month the Hospital Nossa Senhora de Lourdes Hospital in the city of São Paulo opened its new Surgery Center occupying a total area of nearly 20,000 square feet.  And the nearby city of São Carlos will receive US$ 4.1 million for the construction of a 100,000 square foot building for the Center for Innovation in Healthcare and for the purchase of equipment and materials.

Hospitalar is an annual trade fair – the last staging of the show in 2010 featured 1,250 exhibitors, representing 36 countries and attracted some 89,000 trade visitors from 60 countries to its accompanying exhibits, congresses, and workshops.

Take the classic Brazilian phrase É boa pra caramba: 
"Boa" by itself means "good."  But when "pra caramba" comes after "good," it transforms “It's good” to “It's amazing!”

Messe Düsseldorf North America, the subsidiary office of Messe Düsseldorf in Germany - organizer of the renowned MEDICA trade fair, is the exclusive representative office of Hospitalar in the United States and Canada, and also organizes the North American Pavilion at the show every year.

A Season for "Dibs" - Register Now for MEDICA 2011

Posted by Ryan Klemm on Fri, Feb 4, 2011 @ 10:25 AM

Perhaps many of you heard this past week that Chicago had a little bit of snow.  Actually, a LOT of snow, now tallied as the third largest snowstorm in the city’s history.  Not only did we end up with about 2 feet of the white stuff, we dealt with 60+ mile per hour wind gusts, thunder and lightning, and snow drifts six feet high in some places.  But Chicago is generally prepared and has snow removal down to a science, and for the most part within 24 hours things have returned more or less to normal.

But on the side streets, it will usually take a couple of days before a snow plow will pay a visit and shove mounds of packed snow up against the vehicles parked along the curb.

Now anyone who lives in our fair city is familiar with the concept of “dibs”.  This tradition goes back years, and some of our grizzled old-timers will gather wide-eyed children around the fireplace and tell tales about how it even precedes the great blizzard of '67.

dibs3Photo:  Michael Tercha, Chicago Tribune


Essentially, before a side street is plowed, or even afterwards, the residents shovel out their own parking spots on the street and then save them by routinely placing lawn furniture, buckets, two-by-fours, stools, saw horses (or whatever expendable junk they happen to have on hand) in the valuable space they have just dug out. That means the space now belongs to the excavator.  If you park in a saved spot, you may run some unfortunate risks that could eventually involve your car insurance company.  
Hence:  DIBS.

At many of our trade shows that occur on a frequent basis, especially an annual show like MEDICA for example, an informal variation of dibs also exists.  The number of companies that return to the show from year to year is high, and there is a relatively brief registration window in which companies can submit their exhibit space applications.  Often the amount of space that is requested at MEDICA far exceeds the amount of space available at the convention center.

Returning exhibitors who submit their applications before the deadline often will get priority consideration for the same space that they had during the previous show, followed then by new-to-show exhibitors who also submitted their applications before the registration deadline.  Many times, exhibitors will request an enlargement of their space, or a move to another location if possible.  But of course with 4,000+ exhibitors at MEDICA it all depends on who has returned and who is getting their space back.  Usually the best way to increase the chances of upsizing or relocating is by expressing flexibility about preferred booth dimensions, configuration, or location.

Under all circumstances, Messe Duesseldorf works diligently to try and accommodate everyone’s special requests and space requirements in a fair and equitable manner.

Registration for MEDICA 2011 is now open and runs until March 1, 2011, but it is strongly encouraged that you submit your completed registration forms well in advance of the deadline.  To request your exhibitor registration materials, simply contact us or visit the show’s website, www.medica-tradefair.com, and get your dibs on a booth at the world’s largest and leading medical industry trade fair!

4½ Football Fields

Posted by Ryan Klemm on Tue, Oct 12, 2010 @ 15:26 PM

2010 is stacking up to be a good year for U.S. companies seeking export markets and participating at Messe Duesseldorf’s trade shows not just in Duesseldorf, but at the company’s satellite trade fairs in other markets, from Brazil and Australia to China, India, Russia and Singapore!

A total of 987 U.S. companies have participated in, or will participate, in our worldwide roster of trade shows in 2010, occupying over 250,000 square feet of net exhibit space – enough to completely fill nearly four and half US-football fields end to end and side to side!

Leading the pack this year, as always, is the renowned MEDICA and COMPAMED trade fairs this November in Duesseldorf.  The show will feature over 420 US-based exhibitors (a 5% increase over 2009), not mentioning the numerous others who participate in the show via European or offices based elsewhere in the world.  Add in 48 companies from Canada and 10 from Mexico at MEDICA and COMPAMED, and the show is the largest contingent of North-American based exhibitors at a medical industry event outside of the western hemisphere!

Other events in Duesseldorf, # 1 worldwide for their respective industries that have occurred this year, included wire/Tube (120 US exhibitors), glasstec (58) and the upcoming K trade fair later this month (112), just to name a few.

Saddled with a sluggish economic recovery at home, exports have proven to be an important way to grow business and stay competitive with growing international competition.  Kudos to these US companies that are actively embracing export market opportunities!

We’ve been showing the way for nearly 30 years!

Since 1982, Messe Düsseldorf North America has been a resource for US companies seeking new international market opportunities.  We have served as an international like to innumerable U.S. companies over the years, assisting with everything necessary to exhibit at or visit one of the trade shows organized by the Messe Düsseldorf group of companies around the world.

For nearly 30 years, MDNA has brought market partners together to ensure that exhibitors and visitors find customers or providers of service and merchandise they are looking for.

Enhance your Booth. Enhance your Trade Show Experience.

Posted by Ryan Klemm on Fri, Sep 3, 2010 @ 10:23 AM

We’ve all seen them, perhaps been one of them in fact:  that sad little booth with almost nothing in it.  Perhaps a few brochures set out on a draped table, the empty boxes tucked beneath or stuck back in the corner.  Maybe even the booth representative isn’t there, perhaps walking the show floor.

The investment of time and money has been made to get the space and get to the show, but it appears nevertheless that the company is operating on a shoe-string budget, and it shows - even if it really might not be.

There are many reasons why companies choose to participate in a trade show, but the bottom line is that you’re looking to put your best foot forward and make the biggest splash that you can.  First impressions count.

At our trade shows in Düsseldorf, instead of pipe-and-drape schemes, we offer booth construction packages – known as system stands.  They come with the basic elements and you do the rest!  Even in the US Pavilions that we organize, the same procedure applies.

Take a basic package and turn it into something special, something that reflects your company’s corporate image, and something that reflects your marketing strategy.  Some things you can do to give your booth that extra “oomph” include:

  • Affix graphics to the walls
  • Have your company logo placed on the sign above your booth
  • Order a video monitor to play a looping company DVD
  • Get a free-standing literature rack for easy access to your company brochures
  • Green it up!  Get a plant or two.
  • Display cases brighten up your booth and make it easier to view your product samples
  • Bring multiple product samples and brochures
  • Have some “give-aways” available, even perhaps just a few for VIP visitors

Go from this... ...to that!

Just a few simple upgrades can make all the difference in the results of your trade fair participation.

DOTmed interviews Joachim Schaefer, managing director, Messe Düsseldorf

Posted by Ryan Klemm on Fri, Aug 13, 2010 @ 13:12 PM

describe the image
  Barbara Kram, editor of DOTmed News recently conducted an online interview with Joachim Schaefer, the Managing Director of our corporate headquarters in Germany.  Messe Duesseldorf is organizer of the renowned MEDICA and COMPAMED trade fairs, held annually in Duesseldorf, Germany, as well as other leading medical trade shows around the world.
Mr. Joachim Schaefer
Managing Director
Messe Duesseldorf GmbH
       

Below is a transcript of the interview.

DM: Describe your global health care forums. Who are participants? Where are the global hot spots of interest?

JS: Our medical trade fairs target medical users such as doctors and health care professionals, as well as decision-makers from the clinical management sector, medical specialty retail and decision-makers from the medical engineering field. Next to traditional markets with high demand in North America and Europe, the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) nations, as well as specific markets in the Near East, are characterized by growth. Here the demographic development creates an increase in prosperity and an escalated interest in health and well being, which in turn generates more demand for medical services.

DM: Have recent economic woes in Europe impacted your work or have you seen an impact in the medical technology sector?

JS: Compared to the development in other industries, the medical industry has remained largely unscathed by any dramatic declines in demand. In several markets, for example in Germany and France, the medical industry is even benefiting from economic stimulus packages designed to support the economy. Regardless of the financial and economic crisis, the basic conditions of health policy are much more decisive for the medical sector. In this regard we can ascertain that cost-cutting measures are being implemented in almost all industrial nations in order to ensure continued financing of medical care. While this does affect the demand for medical technical products, the demand volume remains consistently high. At the same time, manufacturers are continually increasing the efficiency of medical treatments and improving the therapy success rate with their innovations. This in turn stimulates demand.

DM: From your global perspective working with suppliers and OEMs in the medical technology sector, what megatrends would you say most significantly affect these markets?

JS: Due to the increasing cost pressure in the health care field, it is more important than ever to ensure that the treatment process is as efficient as possible. This is why digitization is advancing at such a fast pace in both the outpatient and inpatient sectors. Systems are in demand that optimally connect the individual departments and doctors to ensure that the patient workflow is not interrupted by paucity of information. Accelerating precise diagnoses is of course also a major priority. The current trend is toward rapid tests that are executed directly on the patient, as well as compact devices for imaging processes. Both deliver critical images and data to aid in determining further treatment. Telemedical services should also be mentioned here. Although they currently represent a niche market, they will undoubtedly be gaining importance in the near future, for example within the framework of remote care of chronically ill or elderly patients.

DM: What are some of the regional differences in delivery of health care?

JS: There are no basic differences between cultures in regard to technology trends. The approval process, however, can vary greatly. The same applies to the financing of, or the access to innovations. In many markets, innovative methods are reserved for the private health care sector. In the end, good medical treatment for broad sections of the population is dependent on whether and to what extent the government participates in the development of the treatment, whether through tax money or the creation of government-controlled insurance systems. In many countries, including for example the USA, such discussions are currently being held and new health care concepts developed.

DM: Which medical technologies attract the most attention at your shows?

JS: The medical trade fairs organized by the Messe Duesseldorf Group cover the entire treatment process, from laboratory technology and diagnostics to innovative medical technology, physical therapy and orthopedic technology to medical IT. Visitor interest is equally high in all of these main areas.

DM: Is medical tourism, in which patients leave their home countries to seek care in another, a growing or significant trend? Which nations stand to gain or lose in this area?

JS: This is a topic with many facets. Basically, growing globalization and the increase in prosperity, along with the rise in health consciousness, is creating enormous growth potential even in the emerging markets. The winners here will be those who can offer excellent professional knowledge combined with an extraordinary infrastructure. Due to the high density of care and in some cases highly specialized facilities, the European market -- particularly Germany -- as well as of course the USA, are in an excellent starting position. But keep in mind that other nations in growth markets are also preparing for this lucrative competition. Factors such as marketing, quality management and outstanding patient care will become increasingly important alongside purely medical aspects, as will uncomplicated dealings with public authorities.

Obama Lauds U.S. Exporters: MEDICA Exhibitor Attends White House Briefing

Posted by Ryan Klemm on Thu, Jul 22, 2010 @ 12:42 PM

San Fernando, California-based    Medical Illumination International is a leading medical lighting manufacturer for surgeries, minor procedure/examinations, oral surgeries, magnifying and UV "Woods" lights, and has been an annual exhibitor at  MEDICA in Düsseldorf, Germany for the past decade.

At the beginning of July 2010, the company was invited by the White House to attend a briefing by President Obama on his new National Export Initiative (NEI).  The participants received a first-hand explanation of the U.S. Government’s plans to increase its support of U.S. manufacturing businesses  - including the goal of doubling U.S. exports within five years, hammerig out   more trade agreements, increasing pressure on trading partners to further   open their markets to U.S. products, and a proposal to create an export   promotion cabinet.

Chosen as one of 150 American companies because of its strong embrace of export operations, Medical Illumination International was represented at the briefing by VP of Sales & Marketing Mr. Larry Debord.  U.S. President Barack Obama outlined his vision for this new export initiative, as well as the various facets of the program and how they would to be implemented, including more financial support for export promotion.

Messe Duesseldorf North America congratulates Medical Illumination International for its participation in this special and unique event, and for its embrace of exporting and seeking new markets overseas.
