Success all along the line:  ISPO World Congress in Hyderabad

The 14th ISPO World Congress held in Hyderabad, India on 4-7 February 2013 gathered some 1,800 participants from over 85 countries.

Congress attendees and exhibitors could enjoy an inspiring, high-quality truly global event which opened significant growth perspectives for individuals and businesses. The host country was very well represented with more than 500 Indian delegates visiting the congress and tradeshow.

“We are extremely pleased with the running of the event which allowed us to present ourselves as a truly global company with a strong representation in India. At our exhibition stand, there were in depth discussions about the scientific programme. In parallel, we were able to build a bridge between the need of the local market and the hightech solutions that Ottobock stands for. We are delighted that not only people from Asia but also from around the world were informed at our stand,” said Christin Gunkel, Chief Marketing Officer at Ottobock.

In addition to the organisation of the exhibition in India, the worldwide sponsorship and acquisition was in the hands of Leipziger Messe. The cooperation for the ISPO World Congress, which took place in Leipzig in 2010 for the first time, will be continued in the upcoming years. The parties concerned signed the relevant cooperation agreement. "We are pleased that Leipziger Messe will be responsible for the exhibition of the ISPO World Congress 2015 in Lyon. Our agreement builds on successful cooperation for the ISPO World Congress in Leipzig in 2010 and in Hyderabad this year. We are convinced the Leipziger Messe is the right partner for our upcoming congress and look forward to working together on securing a successful exhibition in 2015", says ISPO President Prof. Jan H.B Geertzen. Also Martin Buhl-Wagner, Spokesperson for the Executive Board of Leipziger Messe, welcomes this collaboration: "It just shows the enormous confidence that the ISPO has in Leipziger Messes professional expertise. It evidences, once again, our ability to successfully deploy our resources anywhere in the world."

The German Association of Orthopaedic Technology was also represented in Hyderabad and took the opportunity to advertise the OTWorld – International Trade Show and World Congress taking place from 13 to 16 of May 2014 in Leipzig.
