Dusseldorf, Germany, 14-17 October 2015
We take a look at what this year’s exhibition has to offer visitors and exhibitors
REHACARE is the leading international trade fair for rehabilitation, prevention, and inclusion in care in the disability market. Running from 14-17 October, thousands of people with disabilities will descend upon the Düsseldorf fairgrounds to see over 600 national and international exhibitors showcase the latest in mobility aids, assistive and preventative technology, sports, leisure, travel and more.
With over 30 years of expertise and a wide range of experience, REHACARE trade fair is the ideal platform for anyone with disabilities and care requirements, as well as the elderly.
This year the exhibition will span across five halls covering the likes of daily living aids, mobility and communication plus many more. With over 50,000 visitors from 36 different countries last year, REHACARE is an ideal exhibition space to present your brand to a diverse audience.
One of the big issues at this year’s event will be home care. Hall three will host a forum entitled Life with Care@Home where care professionals will be holding workshops and talks as well as being available for advice and information for carers who are seeking additional support. This forum will also include a product showcase.
Hall five will display a marketplace for people with sensory disabilities and limited motor skills, and advice on barrier free travelling, as well as fittings, furnishing and other products for accessible homes, from a wide range of businesses including big name brands such as Ottobock, Meyra, Invacare and Sunrise Medical. Smaller exhibitors offer specialised solutions and high-quality niche items. Thanks to the enormous depth and width of the product range, REHACARE can offer specially tailored solutions for nearly all forms of disability.
Hall four features an array of cars suitable for those with disabilities from big name brands such as Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz. Finally hall seven will be entirely dedicated to showcasing disabled sports, providing advice and information on how to get involved and what’s on offer.
REHACARE is regarded as the gateway to the International market, with around 600 exhibitors from 36 countries including UK, Denmark, France, Poland, China, Canada, Korea and Taiwan. Here, exhibitors meet international trade visitors and buyers from industry, research and development.
Udo Weinstock, Trade Marketing Manager of Invacare, a producer and distributor of a variety of disabled lifestyle products exhibited at last year’s event.
“Our products and services require in depth consultation,” Weinstock said. “This is why specialist retailers are our most important partners. In Düsseldorf we hoped to explain to this target group how our international brand network helps ensure performance. And these expectations were fulfilled. We met with a very interested and expert audience last year.”
The Kaji Corporation from Kyoto, Japan has exhibited at REHACARE for four years now.
“We are seeking sales partners across the world for our product range, wheelchair seats and wheelchair accessories. We have already made numerous successful collaborations at REHACARE and have now also made contact with potential partners. We will definitely keep coming back!,” assured its president, Kaname Ogawa.
REHACARE reaches a broad range of visitors, not only from the general public but also from high levels of experts and buyers of medical suppliers for retail stores, rehab centres, healthcare, labs and other institutions as well as members of the trade and industry, trade associations and professional media. This trade show is one of the most important information platforms for people with disabilities and a great place to actively exhibit and get involved with.
