Conferences in Leipzig – Seven Highlights in 2023

Presenting seven of the most important conferences, meetings and congresses in Leipzig in 2023

In 2023, Leipzig will once again be one of Germany’s conference and congress hotspots. With its unique venues, many hotels, excellent public transport system and lively city centre, the trade fair city is ideally equipped to provide the right space and atmosphere for specialist conferences of all kinds. Whether health and biotechnology, logistics or sustainable mobility – Leipzig is one of the up-and-coming places for bringing experts, exhibitors and trade visitors together and facilitating sophisticated meetings in an attractive setting. Here we present just seven highlights from the countless conferences and meetings that will take place in Leipzig in 2023.

Health and biotech conferences in Leipzig

Industry meetings at the highest level – from digitalised healthcare to modern vascular medicine

Leipzig offers a broad spectrum of high-performance and regenerative medicine, research, and red biotechnology. Institutes, clinics and companies located in the city and region, such as Leipzig’s university, the university hospital, the Heart Center Leipzig and the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology, form active networks, undertake research and development, and make their findings available to the public. So it stands to reason that Leipzig will once again be the host of numerous medical conferences and specialist congresses in 2023.

Highlight 1: therapie LEIPZIG

A first milestone will be the conference therapie LEIPZIG from 4 to 6 May. As a platform for medical rehabilitation and prevention, it offers therapists, medical professionals and decision-makers a wide range of innovative solutions and progressive concepts. For the 12th time, leading companies from the industry will present their latest product ranges and services for a variety of areas of application, from physical therapy, electrotherapy, balneotherapy and aquatic therapy to occupational and speech therapy. Osteopathy and other alternative healing methods are also among the cornerstones of the trade fair and make therapie LEIPZIG a veritable marketplace of possibilities. With 3,000 participants, it is the largest professional development event for the industry in the German-speaking world and offers a broad, practical and interdisciplinary programme with over 200 seminars and workshops.

Highlight 2: future of health xperience

A look into the future will be taken shortly afterwards at the future of health xperience conference on 10 and 11 May. For the first time, it will focus on the topic of digital transformation in healthcare and offer participants an interactive journey to experience the “next big thing(s) in health” – with two parallel conference programmes in German and English, masterclasses, a trade exhibition with a start-up pavilion, a networking evening and a shuttle tour of Leipzig’s digital health ecosystem. The clear focus of the future of health xperience: highlighting and focusing on the importance of the digital transformation in the health sector. Digital innovations such as more efficient processes, unlimited services and customised products create added value that directly benefits the health of many people – and even saves lives.

Highlight 3: LINC

The LEIPZIG INTERVENTIONAL COURSE (LINC) will   be breaking new ground from 6 to 9 June at the Congress Center Leipzig and demonstrating the opportunities Leipzig offers for extraordinary event formats. LINC is one of today’s leading congresses for endovascular interventions and, besides the large number of high-calibre exhibitors, is characterised above all by the innovative ‘live cases’ format, at which a professional audience, both in-person and online, can witness sophisticated surgical interventions from the field of vascular medicine.

Logistics and mobility conferences in Leipzig

A platform for sustainable transport – both commercial and private

Leipzig is one of the leading and most dynamic logistics regions in Germany. The unique combination of favourable location factors and the fact that well-known companies such as DHL, Amazon, BMW and Porsche have settled here, make the region a European gateway and a major import and distribution hub for the whole of Germany and beyond. At the same time, the city attaches particular importance to the issues of sustainability and sustainable mobility.

Highlight 4: Velo-city

The subject of sustainable mobility will get Leipzig moving during Velo-city from 9 to 12 May. Since its first edition in 1980, the flagship event of the European Cyclists’ Federation has played a valuable part in promoting cycling as a sustainable and healthy means of transport for all, with over 1,400 participants, 300 speakers and 70 exhibitors. The traditional bike parade alone, one of the most anticipated conference highlights, brings together thousands of cyclists for a memorable afternoon spent exploring Leipzig and celebrating everyday cycling.

Highlight 5: International Transport Forum

Another major event in Leipzig’s calendar is the OECD’s International Transport Forum (ITF) Summit from 24 to 26 May. Under the presidency of the United Kingdom, high-profile participants from around the world will exchange views on the roles of transport and logistics as drivers of economic growth and environmental and social sustainability.

The right place for congresses, meetings and events of all kinds

Health, biotechnology and logistics are some of the key industries of the congress city of Leipzig. But beyond these, the city is also a popular venue for industry and professional events of all kinds. From 19 to 22 September, for example, Leipzig will host the 54th Biennial Meeting of German Historians, organised by the German Historical Association (VHD). With the Effie congress in November, the city once again welcomes Germany’s leading communication agencies. But we have barely scratched the surface: there are many more conferences to discover in Leipzig in 2023.
