The first 4 International Conferences on Disaster and Military Medicine (DiMiMED) 2013 - 2016 in Düsseldorf have been organized by the Beta Group / Beta Verlag & Marketinggesellschaft mbH, under the auspices of the Medical Corps International Forum (MCIF) and powered by MEDICA / Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. Moreoever in 2016 there was a 1st DiMiMed Asia in Singapore.

The idea was to improve the still insufficient appreciation in the civilian sector of the significant role played by the military medical services internationally, their collaborative work throughout the world, their tasks and the quality of the medical services they provide in the civilian sector.

The conferences have been a great success – the internationally renowned speakers gave an overview about the broad field of Disaster and Military Medicine, our industrial partners introduced their possibilities for cooperation with the military medical corps. The participants – nearly 250 last time – came from more than 35 countries, and all of them were really enthusiastic.
