The Med-Tech Innovation Expo, organised by Rapid News Communications Group, has announced a move from Coventry’s Ricoh Arena to the NEC as the event continues to grow.
The move to the new venue will allow the breadth of features on the show floor to be expanded with new exhibitor zones and exciting content focused on medical plastics, digital health and connected devices, pharmaceutical technologies and early stage innovations.
There will also be a significantly expanded learning programme to drive greater awareness of technology developments and innovations offering yet more reasons for visitors to attend, and more platforms for exhibitors to present themselves and their solutions on.
Duncan Wood, CEO Rapid News Communications Group, owner of Med-Tech Innovation Expo, commented: “With our first full year of ownership under our belt, and two editions completed we are now ready to execute on our ambition and plans for Med-Tech Innovation Expo. Building a showcase event for the industry was always the plan, in 2019 we take the next step towards developing a truly exciting, international event for the medical device technology and healthcare sector in UK.”
Liz Cawley, account manager at the NEC, added: “Rapid News are a valued client of the NEC – we have worked with them for the last eight years to deliver their annual TCT event and Interplas every three years. These events have grown substantially over the last few years at the NEC, where we can offer world-class facilities and international connectivity to support their growing numbers.
“We are thrilled to now be introducing another Rapid News exhibition, Med-Tech Innovation Expo, to the NEC’s portfolio of events in May, to add to their already expanding portfolio.
“They are a progressive company and great team to work with, and we look forward to working with them to make this event a great success.”
Med-Tech Innovation Expo 2019 will take place in Hall 2 at the NEC, Birmingham, on 15-16 May 2019.
