Industry Relevance 

MedtecLIVE is rapidly gaining popularity and importance as a show for medical technology. With alternating editions between Nuremberg and Stuttgart, the trade fair takes place annually and does a fantastic job at exploring the entire value chain of the industry for buyers. MedtecLIVE is the meeting point for product developers, distributors, OEMs, and suppliers of medical technology in Europe. Medical technology is only in its infancy and its role in healthcare will grow in the next decade, which sends a strong signal that the trade fair will be the centre of innovation. 

MedtecLIVE has an international orientation and focuses on manufacturing. It is an attractive hub for knowledge exchange and networking in the medtech field. The fair provides a comprehensive supporting program, including the MedtecSUMMIT, which depicts the most important topics and trends in the industry in cooperation with national and international associations and clusters. Tailor-made digital services for exhibitors and visitors add to the experience. 

The most hotly debated topics are on the agenda in discussions and numerous sessions that tackle digitalisation, regulatory affairs and the ins and outs of production and processes. 

What puts MedtecLIVE on the map, however, is its impressive product portfolio. Buyers discover every relevant and related product category: 

  • Processes, Mechanical Engineering, Manufacturing
  • Materials, Components
  • Services
  • Design, F&E
  • IT

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

Due to its recent founding and short history, MedtecLIVE primarily operates on the territory of Europe. Over half of exhibitors are foreign nationals and 23% of trade visitors travel from abroad. These numbers are expected to go up in future editions now that international travel is allowed. As of last edition, the countries with the largest number of visitors are Switzerland, Austria, Ireland, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Italy, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, and the USA. 

In regards to the type of visitors you’re going to meet at MedtecLIVE, 54% of professional work in medical engineering. Adjacent to this segment are the machine and equipment construction, plastic processing, services, metalworking, software & IT, healthcare, and electronics sectors. The main reason visitors attend the trade fair is to initiate business contacts, receive a general market orientation, and experience new information about products and trends. 

The biggest segment of visitors works in research, development, and design (24%) and greatly benefits from the information programme. In their organisations, they tend to perform an advisory role when it comes to purchasing. Decision makers include purchasing and material management professionals, C-Level Management, owners, and department heads. 

Additional Value of Attending 

MedtecLIVE compliments its exhaustive product showcase and procurement opportunities with a stellar support programme, the crown of which is the MedtecSUMMIT. The international congress brings together experts and professionals from the medical technology industry to dive deep into the most pressing challenges faced by the industry today as well as highlight great opportunities presented by the advent of new technologies. 

The congress offers an extensive program of keynote speeches, panel discussions and networking meetings. There’s something for everyone in terms of topics - digitalisation, artificial intelligence, robotics, sustainability, and regulation are among the mega trends driving conversations. Over 60 speakers guide attendees through practice-relevant and scientific contributions. 

Outside the start-studded lecture lineup, there are going to be plenty of opportunities to network, discuss and exchange knowledge with peers and experts. The B2B networking and topic tables enable participants to connect with potential partners and explore new business opportunities. 

MedtecSUMMIT caters to a diverse range of professionals, including researchers, developers, manufacturers, suppliers, physicians, users from the health care sector, and market and financing experts. Whether you are a seasoned professional or a newcomer to the industry, MedtecSUMMIT promises to deliver valuable impulses for your future. 

But that’s only one aspect of the information programme. Startups receive their due attention at the Start-up Area geared towards promoting newcomers, working on groundbreaking technologies and solutions. They can also enter the Start-up Contest to prove their worth, generate buzz and get in front of investors and buyers of the highest calibre. 

Exhibitors can get noticed in two ways. First, they can sign up to be a stop on the variety of guided tours, which are a sure-fire source of qualified sales leads. Second, companies that work on the manufacturing side of things can have their stand be located at the Special Area “production line”.
