Locations of Messe München: Year of Medical Congresses to Kick off with Euromedlab

March 30, 2022

  • ICM – International Congress Center Messe München: an international hub for the medical industry
  • 2022 set to be a year full of high-profile trade fairs and congresses
  • Scientific hotspot with around 1,000 research projects submitted

Messe München remains a very attractive venue for hosting guest events for an extremely wide range of different industries, such as IT, medicine, pharmaceuticals, science, energy and politics. The wellestablished standing in the medical industry in particular demonstrates the importance of the Locations of Messe München for customers and events from all over the world. High-profile guest events for the medical industry will once again be taking place this year, starting with Euromedlab (the Congress of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine) in April. This will be followed by FOBI 2022 (the Advanced Training Week for Practical Dermatology & Venereology) in July and the DGGG Congress (the Congress of the German Society for Gynecology and Obstetrics) in October.

Euromedlab, taking place from April 10 to 14, will be the first major medical congress to be held this year in Munich from amongst the many scheduled guest events. The congress previously had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. After such a long wait time, everyone is really looking forward to being able to attend the event in person. The enormous importance of the live experience is reflected in the impressive reservation numbers: the floorspace of the 10,000-m2 Hall C1 and the ICM foyer is completely sold out. What’s more, the number of research projects has increased compared to Euromedlab in 2020: a total of 900 scientists have submitted their abstracts compared to 720 for the previous event. As such, the congress is also growing in importance as a European hotspot for the science industry. Guests can look forward to plenary addresses, symposiums and advanced training workshops. The range of different platforms will also feature a large exhibition showcasing the latest developments in diagnostics. The event will also boast a hybrid format for anyone unable to attend in person.

“Our customers feel that the ICM – International Congress Center Messe München is the ideal venue for congresses. Euromedlab and the other guest events scheduled to be held at the Locations of Messe München this year once again prove this”, says Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy CEO of Messe München GmbH.

Stefano Montalbetti, CEO & Managing Director of MZ EVENTS, the company responsible for organizing the congress, describes how exhibitors and attendees are feeling: “We are looking forward to this highlight event with Messe München by our side as a highly professional partner which is able to guarantee the implementation of a reliable safety and hygiene concept for in-person events. This format will build upon previous successful Euromedlab congresses by once again providing all those involved with the opportunity to engage in direct scientific exchanges and discussions.”

The science industry will also be provided with fresh momentum in July in the form of the largest German-speaking advanced training event for dermatology and venereology at the ICM – International Congress Center Messe München: around 4,500 participants will attend the advanced training week from July 12 to 16, 2022. The event was held for the first time in 2016 at this location. In 2020, as part of continued efforts, the organizers and Messe München set up a digital format due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year, FOBI 2022 will also be hosting a virtual platform alongside the live in-person event.

Given that it is directly connected to the exhibition halls, the International Congress Center Messe München is the ideal venue for major national and international congresses. As such, the 64th Congress of the German Society for Gynecology and Obstetrics (DGGG) will once again be held in Riem from October 12 to 15. The last trade congress, which took place in 2020, was held for the first time as a hybrid event in Munich. The DGGG Congress is the largest German-speaking trade congress for gynecology and obstetrics. Every two years authorized representatives of all gynecology and obstetrics-related disciplines and affiliates meet for thisadvanced training highlight event and report on the latest findings and developments in this specialist area.
