Welcome Greeting of the patroness
The Free State of Bavaria has reached an internationally recognized leading position in the fields of medical technology and healthcare. And by launching goal-oriented initiatives, support schemes and development strategies, the Bavarian state government is doing all it can to ensure this success stories continues for many years to come.
Companies that have accelerated Bavaria’s progress as a location for medical technology through immense dedication and inventiveness are actually facing some tough challenges at the moment due to innovation trends and changes in basic conditions. Care models are about to be replaced by individualized, patient-centred solutions, which is resulting in radical changes to products and services and ultimately business models. Digitalization is the biggest driver behind this disruptive innovation push.
The MT-CONNECT trade fair and the MedTech Summit Congress and Partnering are ideal platforms for discussing these challenges. The events’ diverse combination of up-to-date expertise on technical and process-relevant subjects, practice-oriented recommendations for dealing with new legal regulations, opportunities to meet experts and decision makers, and direct conversations with politicians ensure that all participants are even more involved in the ecosystem of Bavaria’s health industry.
You are warmly invited to MT-CONNECT and the MedTech Summit, which take place on 11 and 12 April at NürnbergMesse’s premises. You can look forward to two interesting and interactive events, informative presentations and engaging discussions in an inspiring environment.
Ilse Aigner, MP
Deputy Minister President of the Free State of Bavaria and Bavarian State Minister of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology
