REHAB Trade Fair Will Be Held in Three Exhibition Halls

Although more than a year remains before REHAB 2021 opens its gates, approximately half of the available exhibition area has already been booked

Karlsruhe, 16 March 2020 – The barrier-free exhibition grounds of Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre will be the venue for the 21st REHAB – European Trade Fair for Rehabilitation, Therapy, Care and Inclusion from 6 to 8 May 2021. Expenditures in the healthcare system are constantly increasing and the market for aids and medical appliances continues to grow. Trends such as digitization and the overall ageing of society are heightening the demand for the products and services presented at REHAB. Particularly as a result of strong demand from its exhibitors, REHAB 2021 will offer stand space in a third hall for the first time. “The high quality of this trade fair and its visitors assure REHAB’s ongoing growth. We continue to place great importance on optimal distribution of exhibitors in the halls and on the fair’s unique atmosphere. We are pleased to be able to do justice to the fair’s excellent development and to promote its further evolution by opening a third hall in 2021”, explains REHAB’s Project Manager Annika Gehrmeyer. By expanding the exhibition area into three halls rather than the previous two, even more space will be available to present innovations and to promote interdisciplinary sharing among experts from the care-giving sector, the health industry, people with disabilities and their carers. The proven concept of theme-oriented marketplaces such as “Mobility & Daily Living Aids”, “Child & Youth Rehabilitation” and “Cars & Traffic” will be retained and will continue to structure the comprehensive range of products and services presented at the trade fair.

Approximately half of the available exhibition area has already been booked

Although more than a year remains before REHAB 2021 opens its gates, approximately half of the available exhibition area has already been booked. Months in advance of the upcoming fair, numerous well-known manufacturers, dealers and service providers from Germany and other European countries have reserved their stands in Karlsruhe and thus in Baden-Württemberg, which is Germany’s leading state for medical technology. Returning exhibitors include industry giants such as Otto Bock HealthCare Deutschland GmbH, Paravan GmbH and the Danish company Alu Rehab ApS. Manufacturers of children’s wheelchairs such as Rehatec Dieter Frank GmbH, SORG Rollstuhltechnik GmbH + Co KG and Berollka-aktiv Rollstuhltechnik GmbH have likewise confirmed their intention to participate in REHAB, which is held every two years and is the most important platform for high-quality mobility aids and children’s aids from Germany and other European countries. Interested companies can still book stand space at the early-bird rate until 30 June 2020. The Future Pavilion offers opportunities for start-ups and academic institutions to present their innovations, above all in the areas of digitization and robotics.
