OTWorld.connect 2020: The world's biggest virtual industry congress attracted a high level of interest.
Despite the Covid-19-pandemic OTWorld sticked to its slogan and enabled professionals to „Join the progress“. The digital OTWorld special edition, OTWorld.connect, took place from 27 - 29 October 2020 for the first time. The platform offered a possibility to exchange information and experiences surrounding the topic of optimal treatment with medical aids.
250 lectures of the World Congress and TAR Conference created great interest: participants from 93 countries logged in from 4,400 accounts to benefit from the interprofessional knowledge transfer. About half of the attendees came from abroad. The challenges Covid-19 poses to all care providers, manufacturers, distributors and service providers, and how they can be overcome, were discussed in the sector-political forum, newly created for this purpose. In addition, more than 50 companies from 15 countries presented their latest products and innovations in the virtual Innovation Showrooms and in interactive workshops.
