Virtual MedtecLIVE and MedtecSUMMIT Newsroom
Networking enthusiasts from the medical technology scene have their sights firmly set on MedtecLIVE. In 2019, the trade fair pairing with MedTech Summit Congress & Partnering established itself in the European medical technology sector right from the outset. Moreover, there’s barely any other event in the sector that’s as well networked as MedtecLIVE. More than 20 associations and organisations are already supporting the next round of the trade fair with congress. Exhibitors can benefit from the high calibre of the visitors and provide their own input at two forums and the matchmaking event “Partnering”. MedtecLIVE will take place at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 31 March to 2 April 2020.
MedtecLIVE with MedTech Summit enjoys the support of prestigious associations and organisations such as ZVEI, VDI, VDE, BVMed and Bitkom. The input they provide ensures knowledge transfer, innovative strength and an interface with policy-makers. The event is also backed by a large number of clusters and networking organisations from the health sector. They include MedLife (North-Rhine Westphalia), hannoverimpuls (Lower Saxony), Medical Valley EMN (Bavaria), Cluster Med-Tech (Saxony-Anhalt), Saaris (Saarland), DiagnostikNet-BB and HealthCapital (Berlin-Brandenburg) and biosaxony (Saxony). As a interregional association, institutional sponsor Forum MedTech Pharma e.V. contributes the expertise of its network.
Meeting place for ideas
Associations from neighbouring European countries also support and contribute to MedtecLIVE, in part by hosting pavilions. Dr Kurt Höller, Director of Business Creation at EIT Health, the EU network to promote health innovations and another MedtecLIVE partner, says: “MedtecLIVE 2020 is noticeably developing into a hub for the best ideas on health innovations in Europe, so for EIT Health it’s an event not to be missed. From our pool of more than 500 start-ups we will be bringing promising entrepreneurs and young companies along to the trade fair. The start-up contest will once again be a highlight of the event.”
