Update for the Event

IRMA Hamburg's 2023 edition will take place as a live trade fair between 20.06.2023 and 22.06.2023 at Messe Hamburg. The venue will not feature a comprehensive coronavirus safety plan, since Germany has lifted its national Covid-19 limitations in April 2022. Attendees will be asked to follow guidelines such as performing hand disinfection as often as necessary. Attendees are not required to show 3G entrance documents upon arrival in Germany. However, if they are travelling from a virus variant area of concern, they will be quarantined for 14 days.
At the moment, the government does not consider any country to be an area of concern.


Germany has an especially well-developed industry surrounding rehabilitation, mobility and old age care. It’s not surprising that there’s a specialty fair that services the audience whose lives fully depend on aids, wheelchairs and other special vehicles. IRMA Hamburg exists as a meeting point for operators in the industry to service the needs of the North of Germany. The trade fair has been a recent edition to the mobility landscape with the very first edition held in 2012 in Hamburg and since then has been consistently growing. Visitors will discover an extensive portfolio aimed at all possible health needs. Product categories on display include utility vehicles, vans, walkers, access aids, electric bikes, hand cycles, ramps, RVs, scooters, swivel seats, wheelchair loading systems, hospital beds, power wheelchairs and specialized bicycles among others. IRMA Hamburg enjoys a great success, because it not only showcases quality products but also educates its audience on the full breadth of options available to them.


IRMA oscillates between two cities in Northern Germany – Hamburg and Bremen. This makes the IRMA Hamburg edition a biennial event that is put together at Messe Hamburg over the course of three days in total. Escales-Verlag functions as the official organiser and welcomes the public in late May to survey the full breadth of aid and mobility products. The low cost per ticket makes the event popular with the core audience. Working hours are from 10:00 am until 18:00 pm except for the third day, which concludes an hour early. Accessibility is a key factor and there’s a lot of available parking for visitors with limited mobility and Messe Hamburg enjoys excellent access to public transportation. Aside from the numerous bus lines, you have stations connecting to the city’s S-Bahn and U-Bahn services, which gives you plenty of options for your commute.
