For many years, developments in digitisation and personalised health have been among core elements of the congress, the organiser points out. Around 1,900 visitors travelled to Nuremberg for the previous MedTech Summit Congress and MT-CONNECT, which provided 96 specialist presentations in the congress and exhibition, which had 189 exhibitors from 11 countries. Medical practitioners and other healthcare and industry experts will benefit from the networking opportunities at this year’s event, too, according to Dr Matthias Schier, Managing Director of MedTech Pharma e.V. Connected Health, Neurostimulation, Personalised Medical Technology, Drug Delivery as well as Implant Technologies are just some of the headliners at the Summit.
Besides technological contents, the congress increasingly focuses on IP Management, Supplier Manufacturer Relations, reimbursement and business models, aiming to build a bridge between development and production on the one hand and application in research and clinics on the other. The speakers are from renowned companies such as Siemens, Philips, Aesculap, Medtronic und TÜV SÜD Product Service GmbH, and universities and research institutes such as Munich’s Technical University in Germany, University Zürich in Switzerland, and several Fraunhofer Institutes, plus clinical application specialists.
The Partnering event
The parallel ‘Partnering’ event offers a strong chance to network. In 30-minute cycles, this popular format brings together exhibitors, congress visitors and others. A software program is available to enable participants to arrange appointments quickly.
