Dialogue more important than ever

The future of trade fairs has already begun with the transformation of our trade fair and event offerings.

In order to offer its customers and partners the important platforms for knowledge transfer even during the pandemic, NürnbergMesse has developed its own digital events and platforms. As the first completely virtual live event of NürnbergMesse, MedtecLIVE started at the end of June 2020.

It’s amazing how quickly and successfully the switch to a virtual platform worked out!
