Here’s Why Industry Insiders Flock To Med-Tech Innovation Expo Every Year
Med-Tech Innovation Expo, the UK and Ireland’s leading showcase for medical design and manufacturing technology, is just around the corner. From 25th to 26th April 2018, this is where you’ll find the world’s best medtech designers, manufacturers and thought leaders.
On the show floor, professionals from all areas of the medical device supply chain will demonstrate their newest and most exciting solutions for ambitious technology users. It’s here they'll form partnerships and discuss the ideas that will shape the future of the industry.
So, what makes these innovators choose a trade show as their platform? Why do thousands of industry insiders attend Med-Tech Innovation Expo every year? There’s a number of reasons, and these are just a few;
A UNIQUE MEETING PLACE
More than 2,000 designers, manufacturers, buyers, early adopters, regulators and Class I, II & III medical device producers are expected to pass through our doors this year. They’ll be seeking solutions to challenges, looking for vendors, networking with peers and gaining valuable insight from thought-leaders on two conference stages. No other event in the UK and Ireland brings together the medical device design and manufacturing community like we do and it’s this that creates such an unusual and dynamic meeting place.
THE EUREKA MOMENT
A vast array of medical device innovations come about as the result of conversations and ‘eureka moments’ at trade shows. Ideas sparked by conference content, networking or even a brief chat on an exhibitor’s stand can (and do) develop into tangible products and applications that change the way the industry thinks, designs, develops and manufactures.
Med-Tech Innovation Expo hosts businesses with the skills, materials and expertise to make innovative concepts a reality. This is where great ideas will become viable projects.
KEEPING UP WITH REGULATORY DEVELOPMENTS
Regulation is such an influential and rapidly changing aspect of the industry, it is widely considered to be the most important element of the design-to-manufacture process for medical devices. Just like the industry it serves, medical device regulation moves on at such a pace that conferences and events have become the only practical solution for those who need to stay up-to-date with the latest requirements. We’re lucky enough to have a host of consultancies and legal firms on hand at Med-Tech Innovation Expo to advise on best practise in medical devices.
EXCLUSIVE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
The Med-Tech Innovation Conference provides intelligence from a wide range of blue-chip users, government officials and industry experts. Each year, the conference programme sets the agenda for debate in the industry. The 2018 programme, produced in association with Medilink UK, will include presentations from Deloitte UK, NHS Digital, the Academy for Healthcare Science and more.
Not happy with offering just one learning opportunity, our content team have also developed a fantastic conference and seminar track for the HealthTech Stage. Here, exhibitors will deliver engaging presentations covering all the latest news on hardware, software, materials and services. It’s open-sided and attendees can drop in and out as and when they need. The esteemed list of speakers includes Dr James Stern from Albis, Professor Alexander Seifalian of The London BioScience Innovation Centre and Ultrapolymers’ Lorna O’Gara.
NEW IDEAS, NEW SUPPLIERS, BETTER BUSINESS
Feedback from our attendees shows one of the major benefits of a visit to Med-Tech Innovation Expo is the opportunity to find new suppliers, materials, methodologies and applications. Visitors will enhance their existing products and services, reduce production times and manufacturing costs. Put simply, businesses are improved with the relationships formed and insight gained at this event.
Med-Tech Innovation Expo 2018 will be held at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK, from 25th to 26th April. Attendance is completely free, register now!
Med-Tech gives us the opportunity to show and discuss the types of services that Boddingtons Plastics can offer to our customers. We've seen really good footfall and had several new leads for new devices. The show has been a great success for us and in fact we've booked for next year already.
MedTech Innovation Expo was a fascinating event that gave us new insight and inspiration into the challenges we face and, more importantly, into the solutions to solve those challenges. We’ve already marked the event on our calendar for next year and we can’t wait to see what progress has been made… and perhaps, more importantly, what progress we can aid with our Aether Engine technology!
It was great to speak at this excellent event, very well attended by the NHS and Industry, well organised and plenty of opportunities for networking. Looking forward to coming again next year!
We’ve managed to get a lot of interest of people... It’s a lot bigger than what we expected, and we’ve managed to find unexpected partnerships with companies we didn’t even know existed. We were here last year but we weren’t exhibiting, and we were impressed with the quality and quantity of exhibitors, so we thought it was worth it this year.
