About the event

Event Update

The 2023 edition of ALTENPFLEGE will take place between the dates of 25.04.2023 and 27.04.2023. Messe Essen in Germany will serve as the hosting location for the face-to-face exhibition. The venue currently does not have Covid-19 safety restrictions in place due to the lifting of such regulation on the 02.04.2022. However, attendees will be highly encouraged to wear FFP2 face masks in indoor spaces and to maintain an interpersonal distance of 1.5 metres. At present, visitors to Germany will not be asked to show 3G entry documents upon arrival. Yet, if their country of departure is located in a virus area of concern, they will have to quarantine for 14 days. At present, there are no countries with such a designation.

Calling Card

ALTENPFLEGE unites the various European professional communities for elderly care and is a first-rate purchasing platform for equipment, products, services and furnishings. The trade fair is based in Germany and takes place every year in April. ALTENPFLEGE rotates between cities – Nuremberg and as of 2022, Essen. The switch from Hanover to Essen was made in order to help the trade fair continue to grow. ALTENPFLEGE is not just a place to research market trends and compare newly released products. The trade fair actively works towards sharing knowledge and know-how with a congress programme and a dedicated area for training and education. Now that we’re entering the third year of the pandemic, the elderly care sector faces a lot more challenges in how to deliver the best care and minimise health risks. 

Business Potential 

ALTENPFLEGE attracts a lot of innovative companies, because of its emphasis on startups and groundbreaking products and solutions. In the past, you’ve gotten names like AES, Nui GmbH, Mrs. Kettner UG, Varomo, MOXIE Ltd, Brilliance Sweden AB, VOIZE, The TEUS. The offer of products is incredibly rich and split between care & therapy, nutrition & housekeeping, space & technology, IT & management, and innovative products. The exhibition halls showcase the very best in nursing aids, nursing devices, every-day and mobility aids, ergotherapy technology, nursing therapy, furnishing, architecture, facility management, energy, and logistics. By covering the entire value chain, the trade fair makes sure to attract every type of professional associated with elder care. ALTENPFLEGE attracts a lot of skilled workers across every related field, experts, and decision makers ready to make purchases. 

Did You Know? 

The coronavirus pandemic has left its mark on the elderly care sector and work conditions and standards change on a regular basis. That’s why one of the selling points of ALTENPFLEGE is its Congress, which runs across all three days of the trade fair and has a very extensive programme. Visitors can choose from 30 lecture blocks that touch upon every single aspect of elderly care. In addition to the Congress, skilled workers can also participate in the training programme, which is now more important than ever due to the shortage of workers in nursing. There will be a lot of practical information on media and specialist literature as well as presentations on associations and institutions that might be helpful to workers.
