Close to 100 British companies attended MEDICA 2018, the world’s largest medical trade fair held from November 12-15, at Dusseldorf, Germany, to showcase the latest medical devices, diagnostic software and digitally enabled technologies.

MEDICA attracts over 5,000 exhibitors from 70 countries and plays host to tens of thousands of visitors every year. The event provides a prime opportunity for UK medical companies to meet customers, develop relationships and forge new business.

The UK’s HealthTech sector employs over 97,000 people, making it the biggest employer in life sciences and its importance has been recognized by the UK government, forming a key component of its industrial strategy. As a result, UK companies are now looking for the right trading opportunities to export their technologies and develop new business.

The Association of British HealthTech Industries {(ABHI), London, UK} the UK’s leading health technology trade association, led the UK Pavilion to support British health technology companies interested in developing and nurturing worldwide trade links.

“The UK has long been a leader in healthcare. We have world class universities, dynamic companies and the biggest single-payer health system on the planet, all adding up to what is an incredible ecosystem of innovation and medical excellence,” said Paul Benton, Managing Director, International, ABHI. “It is why overseas companies want to partner with our UK manufacturers and it is the reason the UK carries significant weight when it comes to exploring international markets. It is, in short, a stamp of quality and we are proud to be at MEDICA once again to showcase many examples of this.”
