The 4. ORTHOPÄDIE SCHUH TECHNIK – International Trade Fair and Congress

On 20 October 2017 the 4. ORTHOPÄDIE SCHUH TECHNIK – International Trade Fair and Congress will open its doors in Cologne. After only three events, the ORTHOPÄDIE SCHUH TECHNIK has turned into the most important meeting point of the orthopedic shoe technology industry within a very short time.

After a very successful start in 2011, the exhibition space in 2017 was extended to 8,250 m2 with 140 exhibitors. More than 3,300 interested visitors met suppliers from the industry that presented themselves in an excellent way, so that both sides were thrilled about the event in equal measure. Already at the end of the trade fair in 2015 many exhibitors and visitors signalized that they would participate again in 2017.

The two-day congress with 30 specialized lectures and almost as many seminars offered a complete over- view of orthopedic shoe technology and provided numerous stimuli for the further development of this trade and for the linkage to neighbouring areas. Thus the congress consolidated its position as the most important further education event of the industry.

On the 20 and the 21 of October 2017, orthopedic shoe makers from Germany and from abroad will be offered once more a unique, extensive and concentrated overview of the industry at the trade fair in Cologne. ORTHOPÄDIE SCHUH TECHNIK 2017 will have many interesting offers not only for shop owners, but also for the entire staff of a company:

  • A remake of the day of the apprentice with special lectures and seminars will attract the juniors of the profession to Cologne.
  • Free lectures in the forum within the trade fair hall and the broad offer of seminar topics ranging from manual and technical treatments to marketing, trade or accounting are interesting also for staff from the workshops, trade and the office.
  • The congress with its mixture of practical and medical topics, leaving sufficient time for the visit of the trade fair, will attract many visitors to Cologne in 2017. All lectures in the congress hall will be interpreted simultaneously into English, thus emphasizing the international character and the relevance of the event.

"We will meet in Cologne", was the fare-well of the industry in 2015. This is also valid for Cologne in 2017. Use your chance to present yourself with your offers! We look forward to seeing you again.
