Medical technology event to make UK debut at CBS Arena

by Joe Gallop

A medical technology event that has seen success in Ireland is launching in the UK at Coventry Building Society Arena.

Medical Technology UK will take place on 16-17 March and will look to build on the foundations set by its sister event, Medical Technology Ireland, which takes place at Galway Racecourse in September.

The niche trade exhibition is focused on the medical device manufacturing industry, which in the UK is valued at over £25bn. According to the Association of British HealthTech Industries, the medical devices industry directly employs some 50,000 people and supports an additional 250,000 indirectly.

Medical Technology UK is set to attract more than 120 exhibitors who will be showcasing the latest innovations in design and manufacturing. The event aims to bring medical device manufacturers together with suppliers to the industry and help technology reach medical professionals nationally and internationally.

Delegates will range from medical device manufacturers, major OEMS, and contract manufactures, to start-ups, SMEs and university spin-out companies

The inaugural Women in MedTech forum will be launched at the event and will highlight the experiences of female engineers.

Colin Martin, director at Medical Technology UK, said: “We have seen great success with our sister event in Ireland and we are confident that success will translate to the UK market, which is a global leader in the medical technology sector.

“There is no other event in the UK with the degree of focus that Medical Technology UK will have. Other, more general, design, engineering and manufacturing events exist, however none address the unique needs of the medical device design and manufacturing community with such clarity.

“We’re pleased to also be launching the Women in MedTech forum at the Show, which will be shining a light on the incredible, ground-breaking work female engineers are doing in the industry.”

Paul Michael, commercial director at Coventry Building Society Arena, said: “We’re pleased to be working in partnership with Medical Technology UK to launch this important new trade exhibition in the UK.”
