Karl Lauterbach To Open OTWorld 2022
OTWorld 2022 will be opened by the German Federal Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach on 10 May 2022 in a digital personal welcoming speech. The opening speech will be followed by further eulogies and discussion panels with representatives from the industry as well as an award ceremony for the René Baumgartner prize.
"We are especially pleased that our first big international get-together in person after four years will be opened in an online speech by the Federal Minister of Health Prof Dr Karl Lauterbach", explains Alf Reuter, President of the German Association of Orthopaedic Technology (BIV-OT). "For we can only shape the future of orthopaedic treatment and care and secure it for the benefit of our patients if we work together with politicians."
Karl Lauterbach's appearance is also a particular highlight for Martin Buhl-Wagner: "We are thrilled that the Federal Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach will be opening OTWorld with a digital welcoming speech", the Managing Director of Leipziger Messe says. "After the break due to the pandemic, his opening speech underlines the significance of OTWorld as a worldwide unique industry get-together of manufacturers, dealers and service providers in modern orthopaedic treatment and care."
