Innovation Forum Medizintechnik


The network meeting "place to be" for the medical device industry.

Be there at the 14th Innovation Forum Medical Technology on Thursday, October 20th, 2022!

Together TOP in medical technology – Impulses. Ideas. Innovations.

Whether individual development steps or complete leaps in innovation: If something that already exists in medical technology is to be improved or something new to be established, there are many factors to consider. This includes technologies, materials, methods and processes, but also regulations. The Innovation Forum brings these topics together – and the people who deal with them. Find out about the trends of today and tomorrow. Meet experts from research institutions and companies. Gain insights and the right partners to move forward individually and in cooperation. We shape the forum – you shape the progress.

Program 2022*

*subject to change without notice

Together TOP in medical technology - Impulses. Ideas. Innovations.

from 8:30 am Registration

Use the early hour before the program starts for first talks and a tour through the exhibition.

In 2022 again we are offering a guided tour through the forum-accompanying exhibition.

For organizational reasons, this offer is limited for participants and companies. We will carry out the tour with so-called silent sound.

Companies can use this opportunity to introduce themselves to interested visitors and to present their latest, most innovative products and services. You get space for targeted marketing and can convey your message directly.

The participants get to know exhibiting companies and their products / services and receive practical and usable information directly. This offers the option to initiate new partnerships on both sides.
