Messe Karlsruhe postpones REHAB to 23-25 June 2022

Karlsruhe, 26 January 2021 – Persistently high incidence levels of the coronavirus, slower-than-hoped progress with the vaccination programme, and a target group with special needs for hygiene and protection against infection are the reasons why, after consultation with its partners and multipliers, Messe Karlsruhe has decided to reschedule REHAB – European Trade Fair for Rehabilitation, Therapy, Care and Inclusion. The next REHAB will take place at Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre from 23 to 25 June 2022.

“Our early decision to reschedule REHAB is in the best interest of everyone involved. Because now, four months before REHAB would have begun, our exhibitors and partners would have needed to begin making specific plans and investments for their participation in the event”, explains Britta Wirtz, Managing Director of Messe Karlsruhe. “This rescheduling should lead to an improvement in planning reliability. We have chosen a date in our calendar that is both suitable for REHAB in the competitive environment and acceptable for the industry.”

REHAB was originally scheduled to take place at Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre from 6 to 8 May 2021.

About REHAB Karlsruhe

Since 1980 REHAB Karlsruhe has been one of the most important trade fairs for rehabilitation, therapy, care and inclusion, and has established itself every two years as the most important platform for high-quality mobility aids and children’s aids from Germany and other European countries. Specialists from all over Germany and neighbouring countries traditionally use REHAB to learn about the latest trends in rehabilitation technology, innovations in the assistive aids industry and new therapeutic options as well as to take advantage of further training opportunities. As a platform for the sharing of information among manufacturers, specialized dealers, therapists, medical professionals, nursing staff, service providers, associations, people with disabilities and their carers, REHAB is a must-attend event on the industry’s calendar.
