NHS Digital, Innovate UK and MHRA round off a world-class conference offering
Med-Tech Innovation Expo, the UK and Ireland’s leading showcase for medical design and manufacturing technology, will once again deliver a world-class speaker programme for 2,500+ visitors at the Ricoh Arena in April.
The Med-Tech Innovation Conference, produced in association with Medilink UK, has a history of providing insight and intelligence from a wide range of blue-chip users, government officials and industry experts, and this year’s outing will be no exception. With presentations from Deloitte UK, the Academy for Healthcare Science, NHS Digital and more, the Med-Tech Innovation Conference will continue to set the agenda for debate in the medical technology sector.
The theme of the 2018 conference programme is ‘Advancing Healthcare: Inform, Educate and Inspire’ - an extension of the Med-Tech Innovation Group’s mission to advance healthcare by facilitating conversation and collaboration.
Debbie Chinn, Director of Solutions Assurance at NHS Digital will take to the Med-Tech Innovation Conference stage on Day 1 to discuss clinical risk management for health informatics, current and future trends for clinical safety. Later that day MHRA’s Director of Devices, John Wilkinson, will deliver his presentation on the new Medical Device Regulations (MDR) and In-vitro Diagnostics Regulations (IVDR), ‘from words to action’.
On Day 2, attendees will hear from Dr Ian Campbell, Director of Health and Life Sciences at Innovate UK, who will give an insightful update on industrial strategy and the ISCG (industrial strategy challenge fund). For those seeking a deeper understanding of the mHealth landscape globally, in the UK and the NHS, Liz Ashall-Payne (CEO and Founder of ORCHA) will offer her wealth of expertise.
Over on the HealthTech stage, event exhibitors will deliver engaging presentations covering all the latest news on hardware, software, materials and services. This will include Dr James Stern from Albis discussing the complex world of plastics in healthcare applications, Professor Alexander Seifalian of The London BioScience Innovation Centre covering the development of medical devices using graphene nanomaterials and Lorna O’Gara from Ultrapolymers explaining polymer innovation in healthcare and inter-material replacement for flexible applications.
A complete list of speakers is now available, in addition to the conference programmes for both the Med-Tech Innovation Conference and HealthTech Stage.
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.
