Med-Tech Innovation Expo 2014 caters for the £15 billion market that has grown up based on Britain’s capabilities as a centre of excellence for the research, design, development and manufacture of medical devices.
Med-Tech Innovations Expo 2014 is continuing and strengthening its successful relationship with ABHI (Association of British Healthcare Industries) and Medilink UK (national health technology businesses support organisation) to host the Medical Device Manufacturing Conference as an integral element within the exhibition.
Targeted at the research and development and design engineering community of medical device OEMs, this year’s Expo has expanded to four times the floor space with up to 150 top medical supply-chain companies exhibiting everything from raw materials and components to manufacturing equipment and services.
The event, on Wednesday, April 2 and Thursday, April 3 in the Jaguar Exhibition Hall, is an opportunity to network with key supply-chain organisations and provides a platform to gain valuable knowledge on best practice and industry.
Colin Martin, director of MedTech Communications Ltd, organiser of the exhibition, said: “The medical device industry is a major growth market for the UK and there are thousands of small innovative organisations that need this exhibition platform to understand the tremendous opportunities available to them.
“We have worked tirelessly with our partners ABHI and Medilink to develop Med-Tech Innovation Expo 2014 into a focused, easily accessed, and we hope a must-attend event.”
Med-Tech Innovation EXPO 2014 will also host the Medilink UK Awards 2014 which shine a spotlight on the sector’s highest achievers and demonstrates the continued innovation, diversification and sustainability of UK Life Science businesses.
Chris Owen, senior events manager at the Ricoh Arena, said the organisers had established it as a must-attend expo for those involved in the industry within just 12 months.
“The Midlands is at the centre of many industries within the UK and manufacturing in medical technology is another sector where the region is thriving,” he said.
“This show is ideal for those businesses who are specialists in the field as well as those wanting to find out more.
“Our flexible facilities along with our location in the heart of England makes it extremely appealing to host UK-wide events at the Ricoh Arena and we take great pride in playing our part in helping shows to grow on an annual basis.”
