After this year’s DMEA was replaced by DMEA sparks, an entirely virtual event, an in-person event is scheduled again for 2021. There is a great deal of interest here: around 60 percent of the exhibition space has been booked - the same level as last year. Virtual events will be included, such as live-streaming and virtual networking events. Wide-ranging hygiene measures at the in-person event will guarantee the safety of exhibitors, trade visitors and the general public. As networking and cultivating contacts are an inherent part of DMEA, corresponding concepts are already being prepared to allow this, subject to the applicable rules.

About DMEA

DMEA is Europe's leading event for health IT which gathers decision-makers from every area of the healthcare sector - including IT specialists, physicians, hospital and nursing care executives as well as experts from politics, science and research. Every year a total of around 11,000 trade visitors came to DMEA to find out about the latest developments and products, acquire qualifications and establish important industry contacts. DMEA 2021 will take place from 13 to 15 April in Berlin. Topics will include artificial intelligence, innovations in health IT and digitalisation of nursing care processes.

DMEA is held by the German Association of Healthcare IT Vendors (bvitg) and organised by Messe Berlin. DMEA is organised in cooperation with the following industry associations: the German Association of Healthcare IT Vendors (bvitg), the German Association for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology (GMDS), the German Medical Informatics Professional Association (BVMI). The National Association of Hospital IT Managers (KH-IT) and the Chief Information Officers of University Hospitals (CIO-UK) provide contributions on the subject matter.
