FreeMind is please to introduce you to…

The XPOMET Convention – Medicine to Marvel

Unique in the German-speaking market, XPOMET® is the first and only convention to exclusively showcase technological progress in medicine. Focusing on companies, institutes and individuals that are the driving forces in all areas of medical development, it’s intended to deliver a true 360-degree view of the current state of innovation and progress throughout the world of medicine.

XPOMET® is aimed at the entire medical sector, including healthcare professionals, decision-makers from medical institutions, medical engineers, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, and medical students.

The convention will be held June 12 – 14, 2017 at Congress Center Leipzig in Germany. Its main purpose is to create an international innovation network for the entire medical sector. Physicians, health management, research, technology, industry, investors and other players shall come together and connect. The future and progress of medicine lies in interdisciplinary collaborations and transfer – this is the quint essence of our event. We want the ideas, discussions and products to be spread and also give a platform for future co-operations and new visions.

XPOMET contains 2 innovation congress stages, 2 stages for company and start-up presentations, 1 stage for media and academia, the Future Health Exhibition, a partnering event for all participants, several side events and a start-up section with workshops, investors meetings and an award pitch.

The Innovation Congress

The Convention aims to present medical progress ‘on the edge’. Therefore several international, award-winning experts have already confirmed their keynotes for the congress. Visitors can look forward to Dr. Shafi Ahmed, who is revolutionizing medical training via virtual reality, Paul Sonnier, who will talk about the possibilities of digital health, artificial intelligence specialist Prof. Michael Forsting, Telemedicine expert Nick Adkins, Prof. Erwin Keeve speaking about hybrid surgery, Prof. Thomas Stieglitz, who will report on smart transplants, and many more.

The Future Health Exhibition

The Future Health Exhibition area will be divided in future segments in which exhibitors and partners can present their products and ideas in action and context. We will built constructions in many of the different areas like the Smart Health Home, that belongs to our segment “Future Living”. We believe that ideas, technology and function need to come together which is the basis of the entire convention so next to the well-known exhibitor booths we will connect everything with each other to monitor the possibilities that already exist or will exist in future. Further topics we will cover are Future- Mobility, Emergency AidMedical Education, Practice, Pharma, Organs and Implants and many more.

The Stages

With variety being an important element of XPOMET®, it will feature several stages and showrooms. Apart from the main congress stage, the other stages will be used by seasoned companies, young start-ups and research groups to introduce their projects, hold panel discussions, and present additional creative activities. Moreover, one stage will be hosted by a media partner and universities.

The Start-up Section

The XPOMET® convention will furthermore contain a well composed area for Start-ups that implements many features like workshops, special speeches and meetings with investors. In addition an award pitch has been set up for all participating startups, and we have already provided the first €5,000 of prize money. To create further value for young, innovative companies, we are offering special prices and discounts, individual participation packages and ideal positioning.

Festival and Network

With this event we don’t just want to create another event for the medical sector – we want to dedicate a festival to medicine and innovation. And to round knowledge, network and business with a special personal and individual experience we are adding music and art, food trucks as well as a partnering event and nice get-together evenings. We want the event to be visionary and inspired.
