DMEA Postponed and Rescheduled for 16 to 18 June 2020

DMEA - Connecting Digital Health16 - 18 June 2020, Berlin, Germany.
The German Association of Healthcare IT Vendors (bvitg) and Messe Berlin have agreed to postpone this year's edition of DMEA - Connecting Digital Health, which will now take place from 16 to 18 June 2020. This is due to the heightened health risk and the assessment of events relating to the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). On Wednesday the WHO officially declared the global COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic. Furthermore, the Berlin public health authorities have decided to cancel large events with over 1,000 participants until 19 April 2020.

"In many cases, the services of those taking part in DMEA are now required by their patients, which is why we have decided not to hold the event on the dates originally planned," said Sebastian Zilch, managing director of bvitg. "At the same time we believe that digital solutions such as video consultations and ePrescriptions have great potential to assist medical staff in these times and improve treatment for patients. DMEA is the leading platform and most important event for exchanging information on this subject."

"We are aware that the postponement creates difficulties for everyone," said Jens Heithecker, executive vice president of Messe Berlin. "However, it is the only way we can ensure the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and partners. By taking this decision early we can avoid a cancellation at short notice and provide greater planning certainty and security, particularly for our exhibitors."

All services previously booked, including exhibitor passes, tickets for visitors and construction passes remain valid for the revised dates in June. Additional information and FAQs can be found on DMEA website https://www.dmea.de/en/

The decision to postpone the event was coordinated with major industry partners and the partnering associations GMDS, BVMI, CIO-UK and KH-IT. DMEA looks forward to presenting a wide-ranging programme in June.
