Attractive Event Program

In addition to the great depth of the exhibition, the consistent focus is on the industry trends of the future, to which numerous seminars, workshops and special areas on different topics are dedicated. Thus, for you as a trade visitor, EXPOLIFE is the central meeting place to bring yourself up to date, for direct contracts with suppliers and manufacturers, but also for further education and professional orientation.

On all three days of the fair, a comprehensive range of seminars, specialist lectures, interactive workshops as well as panel discussions and live product demonstrations are open to you. The guided tours of the trade fair to selected exhibitors and exhibits at the trade fair and the presentation of the EXPOLIFE News Award set special accents. The Further Education Forum is explicitly aimed at young professionals in the healthcare sector and prospective young entrepreneurs. The best opportunity for networking and exchanging experiences in a relaxed atmosphere is the big fair party on the evening of the second trade fair day.
