"The exhibitors expressed great satisfaction with the running of the Medtec exhibition. The new formats have made a significant contribution, and have been greeted with strong approval by visitors. In partnership with UBM, it is now our intention to further optimise and to raise the profile of Medtec in 2017." - Niklas Kuczaty, VDMA
More visitors, more exhibitors and more formats – this was the conclusion reached as this year's Medtec Europe closed its doors on the 14th April.
Summary of the 2016 event:
6,813 visitors from 72 countries - a 9.5% increase compared to last year
620 exhibitors - a 2% increase compared to 2015
65% of the exhibition space for 2017 has already been booked (+9% compared to 2015)
641 meetings were attended onsite, arranged via our Medtec Meetings Portal
"The event was excellent for us. We previously didn’t know many of the visitors, but we met exactly the right people. We have made a number of good contacts to follow up and found exactly the support that we need for our customers in Europe and beyond. Medtec Europe is a highly effective event for this market segment, which we will happily visit again." - Brian Reece, CEO & Managing Director of Sheffield Medical Precision
