MT-CONNECT, the international exhibition for all the supply and manufacturing areas of medical technology, and the international medical technology congress MedTech Summit will take place on 11 and 12 April in 2018. "In many talks with exhibitors and visitors, we have also understood that the MT-CONNECT should not be held at the same time as the Hanover Trade Show. We are now fulfilling this wish in cooperation with the MedTech Pharma Forum in the second week of April," says Exhibition Manager Alexander Stein.
Around 1,900 visitors came to Nuremberg in June 2017 to attend the opening of the MT-CONNECT and the parallel MedTech Summit with a total of 96 specialist presentations in the congress and the exhibition forum, and to make contact with 189 exhibitors from 11 countries at the exhibition. "We are currently working on using the comprehensive feedback we got from exhibitors and visitors for the next event," says Alexander Stein. And Dr. Matthias Schier, Managing Director of the MedTech Pharma e.V. Forum adds: "We want participants and speakers to be able to benefit from the wide range of networking opportunities around the MedTech Summit and the MT-CONNECT in 2018 as well."
"The new date was the most urgent decision, taken in order to give exhibitors planning reliability. We will be fine-tuning how we arrange the content in a next step, but our guiding theme will remain the effective bringing together of people and companies – from the suppliers to the producers of medical products," Alexander Stein promises.
Networking the participants was one of the major achievements of 2017: "The partnering event brought exhibitors, visitors and participants in the congress together in a total of 489 targeted discussion rounds," says Matthias Schier in summing up. The meetings were agreed on beforehand on the MedTech Summit online platform and took place in a separate area in the MT-CONNECT trade fair halls.
Registration is now open to exhibitors. Early bookers have the advantage of a price-saving of 10 euros per square metre of stand space. Full information available at www.MT-CONNECT.de
About MT-CONNECT and the MedTech Summit
MT-CONNECT is the exhibition for all the supply and manufacturing areas of medical technology. As a platform for the industry, MT-CONNECT pools expertise from all the sub-areas of medical technology, from technology and production to financing, marketing and regulatory affairs. This is where manufacturers, suppliers and service organisations as well as research and education institutions in the medical technology industry meet to exchange ideas. The international MedTech Summit congress is being held at the same time, in the immediate vicinity of MT-CONNECT. For many years now, the focal topics of the congress programme have been medical technologies, diagnostics, digitisation and mobile health. Besides technological contents, the congress also places a strong emphasis on innovation management and regulatory affairs. The honorary sponsor of MT-CONNECT and the MedTech Summit is the MedTech Pharma e.V. Forum, the largest healthcare industry network in Germany and Europe. The next MT-CONNECT and MedTech Summit will be held on 11 and 12 April 2018.
