RFPO Russian Forum on Prosthetics & Orthotics
Dear Visitors and Exhibitors,
It is with great sorrow and a heavy heart that we must inform you that this year's Russian Forum, scheduled for June, will not take place in June. The ongoing corona pandemic, the current measures and restrictions on travel, as well as the associated planning uncertainty for exhibitors and programme participants, make it impossible to hold an event of this magnitude in June 2021.
Further steps regarding registration and the new event date will be communicated to you in due time.
RFPO 2019 came to a successful close. A total of 3,090 visitors (2017: 2,350) took in the offerings of more than 100 exhibitors from 11 countries. Germany attended the trade fair with 23 exhibitors and drew particular attention with an official collective stand. Exhibitors praised the professionalism of trade fair visitors. The state sector, which represents roughly 90 per cent of the Russian market, saw full representation at the forum.
The Russian Forum for Prosthetics & Orthotics 2019 (RFPO) is the only event of its kind in Russia and organized by Leipziger Messe International (Germany). It provides an outstanding opportunity for international manufactures to enter the Russian market. The combination of seminars, live demonstrations, conferences, competitions and an exhibition is unique, making the RFPO highly attractive throughout the sector. Nowhere else is there such a wide range of further training and information tailored to the individual target groups. And nowhere else is it possible to meet so many representatives of the O&P market!
Strong partners like the Russian state holding fronting all 70 prosthetics manufacturers, the Ministry of Social Affairs, medical assessment boards, the Moscow Department of Health, disabled support groups, therapists’ associations, parents’ organizations as well as representatives of scientific institutions, rehabilitation centres and leading clinics advise the RFPO on what to include in the extensive congress programme, and will be encouraging their staff and members to attend.
Next RFPO takes place in June 2021 as an integral part of the International exhibition for rehabilitation equipment “Integration” organized by Messe Dusseldorf Moscow. Both RFPO and “Integration” benefit from the wide experiences of Leipziger Messe and Messe Dusseldorf in organizing its world leading trade fairs “OTWorld” and “Rehacare” in Germany. So, this unique Moscow event will bring together Russian and international experts in orthopaedic and rehabilitation technology.
