Successful business year for foreign trade fairs – With a total of 35 German joint attendances and country participations, as well as nine cooperation and own events, the year 2017 turned into one of the most successful business years for Leipziger Messe International GmbH (LMI), and allowed the company to continue the positive trend of the previous year. It is the result of, among other things, numerous engagements by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL), the Federal Ministry of the Economy and Energy (BMWi), and the strong German export industry. Particularly medium-sized companies are increasingly presenting their products in international markets under the “Made in Germany” label and with the professional support of LMI.

New training congress with industry exhibition for orthopaedic and rehabilitation technology in Russia – Leipziger Messe International (LMI) has created a totally new event format for orthopaedic technology in Russia. LMI has succeeded in involving all market stakeholders among both suppliers and buyers from all over Russia in the development of the Russian Forum on Prosthetics & Orthotics. Until now, training courses in orthopaedic and rehabilitation technology in Russia have been few and far between, meaning there is a huge demand for further training and interdisciplinary dialogue among technicians, doctors and therapists. The new concept responds to this by setting up a training and development platform.
