Following last year’s enormous success – with the participation of 900 decision-makers from 23 countries – UBM Canon is mounting the second edition of OrthoTec Europe, the comprehensive exhibition and conference for design and manufacturing professionals in orthopaedic devices.
Acknowledging Switzerland’s importance as a European centre for orthopaedic production and development, the organisers have again chosen the Mövenpick Hotel in Zürich-Regensdorf as the venue. Besides offering the advantage of a short travelling time for exhibitors from neighbouring France, Germany and Italy, this central European location is also popular with other European and overseas companies from countries like the UK, Spain, Russia, USA and Brazil.

OrthoTec Europe is specially tailored to meet the needs of the European orthopaedics sector in development, design and manufacture. Subcontractors and suppliers are therefore just as strongly represented as manufacturers of orthopaedic devices. The organisers also expect participants from consultancies and institutes offering expert advice to European companies on how to fulfil admission requirements for attractive overseas markets like the USA and emerging countries with strong growth potential.

Aurore Domange, Events Manager for the organisers UBM Canon, explains: “The exhibition is an ideal opportunity both to showcase the most innovative technologies and to make useful contacts with other decision-makers from the industry in a convivial atmosphere. We offer exhibitors a very favourable package comprising a standard 3 x 2 m exhibition stand with partitions, carpeting, reception counter and lighting, with opportunities for variable stand design and sponsor exposure.”
Exhibitors at OrthoTec Europe 2011 will showcase the latest state-of-the-art systems in development, design and rapid prototyping. Also on show will be biomaterials, technologies and services in the processing of metals and plastics, as well as polishing, finishing and packaging technologies.
Complementing the exhibition will be a conference with expert speakers delivering papers on market developments in orthopaedics, new manufacturing technologies, quality control, and numerous aspects of the design and construction of orthopaedic devices and implants. These will include lectures on “Opportunities and Challenges in the Global Orthopaedics Industry” and “The Current State of Research in Biomaterials and Implant Technology“. There will also be talks on “Advanced Manufacturing Processes in Orthopaedic Implants” and “Potential Drivers of Future Growth in Orthopaedics“.
The OrthoTec Europe combined exhibition and conference takes place on 28th and 29th September in Zurich
