Messe Stuttgart welcomes the Medtec Europe in 2018.

Organizer UBM recently announced the addition of industry association VDE DGBMT (German Society for Biomedical Engineering) as a key event partner for Medtec Europe 2018, alongside a strengthened partnership with Fraunhofer IPA and Landesmesse Stuttgart to deliver the second Medical Device Manufacturing Conference. These, along with its existing partnerships, will help ensure that Medtec Europe 2018 continues to lead as a hub of medical technology trends, the organizer states.

VDE DGBMT will play an integral role in the 2018 event by making their expertise in the biomedical and medtech industries available to attendees and exhibitors through on-site information and activities. Medtec Europe will also expand its existing collaboration with VDI (Vereinigung Deutscher Ingenieure), providing a unique platform for young professionals where the next generation of innovators from the medtech industry can collaborate and network.

The fair will also continue its partnership this year with VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau) in order to share industry knowledge and build the growing professional networks in the European medtech industry. Additionally, the Medical Device Manufacturing Conference (in Cooperation with Landesmesse Stuttgart and Fraunhofer IPA) will host its first full conference, Medical Device Manufacturing Innovations. This forum is targeted at decision makers from R&D, medical engineers and product developers and is offered in parallel to the full Medtec Europe 2018 programme. Alongside the well-known Medtec Meetings Matchmaking Programme and Breakfast Session, Medtec Europe 2018 will bring a new and enhanced Start-Up Academy and laser sharp focus on relevant topics through the Medtec Insights Theatres.
