Messe Dusseldorf

Scottish Development International will once again be organising a Scottish Pavilion at MEDICA, the world’s largest and most prestigious medical technology and equipment show (

A world-renowned leading medical products and services show, MEDICA offers the opportunity to promote your products and services for export to an international audience and meet customers and qualified distributors from all over Europe and the world.

Germany is considered the third largest market for medical technology and medical products, with great healthcare infrastructure, a good level of care for patients, well-educated medical professionals and high standards of clinical research.

MEDICA 2018 in numbers:

  • 120,000 visitors from 120 nations
  • 65% of visitors from out with Germany
  • 5,286 exhibitors from 66 nations
  • 69% of exhibitors from out with Germany  
  • 784 exhibitors from 40 countries exhibited at COMPAMED (supply chain show)

Scottish Pavilion

This year the size of the Scottish pavilion will be dependent upon the demand from companies to exhibit on the pavilion. Companies will be offered the opportunity to exhibit on either a 3x2m booth or an exhibitor pod. The pavilion will form part of the significant UK presence at MEDICA and will be co-located with the Northern Irish, Welsh and ABHI-managed UK pavilion.

Due to the spiralling costs of exhibiting at MEDICA we have no option but to raise our prices accordingly and will therefore be offering the 3x2m booth for sale at £6,000 (£5,000 + VAT) and the pod for £3,900 (£3,250 + VAT). These prices are still competitive when compared with the prices being charged by the Association of British HealthTech Industries or Medilink UK.

However, to offset some of these costs, we have managed to secure several TAP grants worth £2,000 each for those companies who meet the relevant criteria. Both the booths and pods can be secured on a first come first served basis.

The closing date for applications is Friday 5th July 2019.
