MT-CONNECT and MedTech Summit 2018 set to make participation easier and expand range

Next year’s MT-CONNECT trade fair and MedTech Summit – Congress & Partnering event will feature a greater number of attractive offers and closer links between the two segments. The intention is to make participation easier and more focused for exhibitors and trade visitors. A slight growth in exhibitors and visitors is the goal of the event, which premiered this year and combines a trade fair for suppliers and manufacturers of medical technology with the traditional networking platform for the international medical technology scene at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg.

In future there will be two different ticket options: one and two-day tickets for the trade fair only and combi tickets for entry to trade fair, congress and popular partnering event. Prices for combi tickets start at just EUR 160 plus sales tax. In future, comprehensive information about participation options, offers and programme features for trade fair, congress and partnering event can be found in one place, at www.mt-connect.de. “As well as covering technological and scientific issues, the congress also explores content relevant to the market like collaboration between suppliers and manufacturers or reimbursement strategies, and therefore acts as a bridge between the scientific, business and user communities,” says Dr Matthias Schier, Managing Director of Forum MedTech Pharma e.V., the sponsor of the MedTech Summit. The sophisticated matchmaking portal and partnering event complete the portfolio and facilitate efficient discussions at 30-minute intervals that can booked online by participants in advance.

Something for all target groups

“Next year we are once again expecting a large number of high-calibre trade visitors and are specifically targeting purchasers, product managers and R&D specialists from medical technology manufacturers, for example, with our MT-CONNECT 2018 event,” says Alexander Stein, Exhibition Director of MT-CONNECT at NürnbergMesse. Companies showcasing their products and services at their own stand are also free to attend the congress and partnering event. This allows them to acquire new knowledge and forge new contacts through pre-arranged meetings. The informal exchanges at the After Business Party are also a reliable way of securing new contacts.

For scientists, young innovative companies and start-ups from around the world, the Innovation Marketplace offers the ideal platform to showcase their own research projects or new products and solutions. Innovative service providers in various areas of medical technology are also part of this platform. Start-ups enjoy special conditions allowing them to take part in the fair for as little as EUR 490. For more in-depth knowledge acquisition and talks with potential partners, the congress and partnering event are also available at reduced rates.

Students in relevant courses can also save, with free entry to the trade fair facilitated by our partners and collaborators.

MT-CONNECT and MedTech Summit – Congress & Partnering will take place on 11 and 12 April at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg. Exhibitor registration is now open. For more information please go to: www.mt-connect.de/become-exhibitor
