Off to MEDICA 06
I leave this evening for Duesseldorf, Germany, where our company is exhibiting at the MEDICA trade fair.
MEDICA is held around mid-November every year in Duesseldorf. It is the largest and most important trade fair in the medical equipment sector.
I learnt about MEDICA - thanks to the internet. In 2002, shortly after I began working on export promotion, I had come upon the website of Dr Joseph Eldor, an anaesthesiologist in Israel. I communicated with him, and he advised me that we should participate in MEDICA. That was a major watershed in the life of our small manufacturing enterprise.
MEDICA is the Mecca of global medical technology business! Being there - is a scintillating experience, but also very hectic and demanding.
After the fair, I will be visiting my friend Johannes Laping in Heidelberg, and then spending a few days meeting family and friends in London. I hope to meet my college friend JP in London - after more than 26 years. And I hope to meet my new blogger friend Yves.
I will be back in Calcutta on 24th November.
Till then, bye dear friends, and my best wishes to all!
