Following the latest developments regarding the corona pandemic the German Association of Healthcare IT Vendors (bvitg) and Messe Berlin have decided to reschedule DMEA – Connecting Digital Health for 8 to 10 June 2021.

“The coronavirus situation in Germany remains serious. This was reflected in the recent decision to extend the partial lockdown until January”, said Sebastian Zilch, managing director of bvitg. “In order to offer our exhibitors, partners and visitors greater planning certainty we have decided early, some four months ahead of the original dates, to reschedule the event. We are confident that infections will decline by early summer and that we will be able to hold DMEA as planned as an in-person event here in Berlin.“

DMEA will take place from 8 to 10 June 2021 on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds. Wide-ranging hygiene measures at the in-person event will guarantee the safety of exhibitors, trade visitors and the general public alike. The in-person format will be augmented by virtual formats such as virtual trade fair tours. Networking and cultivating relations are part of the DNA of DMEA, which is why these activities are to be made possible on the grounds. The new dates in early summer will enable some of the networking formats to be held outdoors.

Additional information and FAQs can be found on the DMEA website.
