DMEA 2021 goes Digital

DMEA - Connecting Digital Health7 - 11 June 2021, Berlin, Germany.
This year, Messe Berlin and the German Association of Health IT Vendors (bvitg) are holding DMEA - Connecting Digital Health as an entirely virtual event. This is due to the continuing uncertainty of the situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

"We had very much hoped to be able to hold a live event. However, in the light of current developments that is not possible. In order to give our exhibitors and participants maximum planning certainty we have taken this decision together with bvitg. When we planned DMEA, faced with a constantly changing situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic we had already prepared for various scenarios. We are now able to adjust relatively quickly to our concept for an entirely virtual event. Naturally, our previous experience with DMEA sparks and other virtual events at Messe Berlin has been a great help," said Jens Heithecker, executive vice president of Messe Berlin.

An entire week of DMEA and an exclusive programme of events

DMEA 2021 will be offering trade visitors a comprehensive programme again that combines the key elements of a congress and advanced training and networking events. DMEA will kick off on 25 May already, with visitors being able to access virtual tours and practice-oriented webinars. On 27 May a whole day will be devoted to health IT newcomers. Taking place from 7 to 11 June, DMEA will feature a programme of outstanding keynote speeches, panel discussions and lectures by experts from politics, science and industry.

"With a DMEA programme that extends over several weeks we are offering the industry a focal platform that fully exploits the advantages of a virtual format while presenting the wide range of digital healthcare topics," said Sebastian Zilch, managing director of the German Association of Health IT Vendors. "The past few months have demonstrated the potential of digital health, but have also shown areas where we significantly need to catch up. We invite everyone who would like to help shape the future of digital healthcare to DMEA this year to exchange ideas and network at this virtual edition."

The decision for an entirely virtual format was taken in coordination with the major industry partners and the event partners GMDS, BVMI, CIO-UK and KH-IT.

The programme of the virtual DMEA is scheduled to be available on the website from 25 March.
