Once again in 2019, the MedTech Summit will bring together physicians, manufacturers, suppliers, researchers and service firms in the medical technology industry. The Congress programme will take an in-depth look at topics including robotics, digital processes, manufacturing and regulation. Participants can enjoy substantial added value in the form of an integrated partnering event, free entry to the international trade fair MedtecLIVE, and exclusive insights into the radiology conference that will be held in parallel.

The MedTech Summit together with MedtecLIVE has become established as a key event for the medical technology sector. From 21 to 23 May 2019, the event will once again bring together experts from the areas of medical application and research, and representatives of manufacturers, suppliers and service firms. A guided and now more interactive programme will deal in depth with topics of current interest, with opportunities for discussion and further elaboration. Participation by highly regarded speakers will create an informative base for discussion, opportunities to work together and stimuli for further activity.

Medicine meets technology and innovation

The programme for the 2019 summit combines medicine and medical technology with other topics in the areas of technology and innovation. The medXsmart-electronics, medXrobotics, medXdata-analytics and medXdigital-processes sessions will illustrate the impacts of the digital transformation. In each of these areas, the guiding themes for the participants will be Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Data Security – covering everything from the status quo to potentials for the future. The second strand of the Congress will cover the processes leading to the market. medXideation, medXregulation, medXmanufacturing and medXsupply-chain will illustrate opportunities to pick up new stimuli for products, and to overcome the challenges arising on the market. While countless practical approaches have been developed in these areas, manufacturers, suppliers and hospitals still experience uncertainty and have different expectations. The MedTech Summit will illustrate a number of outlooks, identify opportunities, and encourage dialogue between all players.

Customisation is at the heart of MedTech Summit 2019, where two parallel sessions will give participants a flexible choice between keynote presentations, lecture series, discussion rounds and workshops. The perfect connection between the trade fair and Congress will also be provided by tours through the MedtecLIVE halls, to be held in parallel and structured in accordance with the medX topics.

The MedTech Summit partnering event enables participants to engage in dialogue with previously selected discussion partners in a secure environment. Personal assistance in advance and on-site will guarantee the best possible result, opening up opportunities for cooperation, long-term partnerships, and solutions relating to the participants’ own products.

Participants will be able to experience product innovations and solutions covering the entire medical technology value chain at the parallel MedtecLIVE trade fair. The range of products and services, spread across two exhibition halls, will cover the whole manufacturing process chain for medical technology, from initial prototypes to market-ready products. Special exhibition areas, such as a novelty stand and the Innovation Market Place for young companies, will encourage discovery and networking. So far, companies from about 25 countries have registered to take part in the international trade fair.
