A great place to engage with innovators and stakeholders across the innovation landscape.
A well organised exhibition that generated plenty of foot fall. We would happily support Med-Tech Innovation Expo again, and look forward to the relocation to the NEC.
We met several companies who gave us interesting and knowledgeable information which will assist us in our future product and manufacturing decisions.
Great show for presenting our company to the medical device marketplace we had plenty of interesting conversations which am i sure will convert into business opportunities.
