Hospitalar & Covid-19

After a hugely successful live edition in 2022, Hospitalar 2023 is in the works as a live rendition. Informa Markets are eager to return to in-person events as a way to continue the restart of the industry. This is even more important for the medical industry because of the coronavirus pandemic. Organisers have included all the most essential protective measures and are ready to welcome visitors between May 23rd – May 26th, 2023. São Paulo Expo Exhibition & Convention Center will once serve as the venue and there is already a lot of excitement for Hospitalar 2023 from shareholders and experts worldwide. Participants should take into consideration that due to Brazil's travel restrictions, they will have to present upon arrival in the country 3G entry documents such as vaccination passports.


In Brazil, Hospitalar is one of the most valuable platforms to experience the full range of products for the hospital and medical field. Since 1994, the international trade fair provides companies and hospitals a fruitful environment to network and negotiate deals. What’s all the more important for Hospitalar is that it’s a multisector event – all health sectors are present. Trade visitors have access to the entire production chain. Organisers promote Hospitalar as the future of health and they’re right. Each year sees cutting-edge technology and solutions rise to the forefront. The exhibition grounds are divided into themed zones – Technology, Rehabilitation, International, Consumables and Facilities, Infrastructure and Architecture. The product portfolio extends to everything from hospital beds, laboratory equipment and walking aids to surgery equipment, work clothes and vending machines. Supply meets demand in an intense program, which allows exhibitors to move product and generate sales leads in great numbers.

This international trade fair arrives every May in São Paulo, Brazil and editions typically last for about four days.
