OTWorld will open its doors both in Leipzig (OTWorldOnSite) and online (OTWorldOnAir) from 27-29 October 2020. OTWorld takes place every two years in Leipzig and is the world's leading exhibition and world congress for orthopaedic technicians, orthopaedic shoemakers, rehabilitation technicians, therapists and doctors, engineers, the medical trade and insurance companies' employees with a unique range of products and services.

OTWorld 2020 will connect the industry's international community, in these times of uncertainty and upheaval worldwide, with a hybrid concept both digitally and on location in Leipzig. In order to highlight the special features of OTWorld 2020, "connect" was added to the end of the name - OTWorld.connect 2020.
