6th PflegeMesse: 18th to 20th of may 2021 in Rostock

In recent years the healthcare industry has developed into a sector with high growth- and investment potential. And the potential for further expansion, especially in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, is far from being exhausted.
Representatives of this rapidly growing industry will meet in Rostock for the fifth time to exchange experience and ideas at the PflegeMesse.

The trade fair and congress for rehabilitation and care took place from 18th - 20th of September 2018 in the state exhibition centre HanseMesse Rostock. Stationary and ambulatory care facilities represented, as well as professional associations, manufacturers of care products, providers of special equipment, IT-service providers and research institutes.

The next PflegeMesse will take place in spring 2021. We are looking forward to welcoming you to Rostock.

State Care Congress and Seminars

As part of the PflegeMesse, the State Care Congress will be held under the patronage of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health. The combination of the two events was well received in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018. As a result the fair is an ideal meeting place for care workers, therapists and administrative personnel from social associations and educational institutions. The professional seminars, workshops and presentations are valuable not only for continuing education, but also for the exchange of ideas. The topics in both years ranged from employee motivation and special ambulatory palliative care to the latest information on dementia patients. As a result of the combination of congress and exhibition, visitors have the chance to get a comprehensive overview of the exhibitors’ new products and services.
