According to the organisers the second World Medtech Forum Lucerne (WMTF), held from September 17 – 19, has been a complete success. The mix of international suppliers, latest developments in Swiss medtech research and inputs from the medical technology sector was enthusiastically received.
3,200 medtech specialists from science, the supplier industry and manufacturers, plus doctors and hospital specialists came together at the World Medtech Forum in Lucerne. 100 top speakers, 250 exhibitors and a wide variety of special exhibits, workshops, expert and cluster meetings brought a unique breadth and depth of subject matter that met with unanimous approval according to the visitor survey.
Top infrastructure – tailored to the needs of the World Medtech Forum
Ensconced in the new infrastructure of the Messe Luzern exhibition centre, with its new halls and integrated congress center, 300 management participants met at the congress held simultaneously with the WMTF to learn about the latest developments in the markets of Europe and North and South America. “The WMTF is the ideal platform for sharing ideas, developing new strategies and forging partnerships at international level”, says Dr Rubino Mordasini, President of the sector organization Medical Cluster.
Highlights of the second WMTF
The supplier industry surprised the international audience with innovative new products. Once again, the Center of Attention attracted the interest of industry, academia and hospitals as they made the most of the opportunity to listen to presentations by selected specialists and discuss them with the speakers. The reorganized Expert Park was also favorably received: this is where specialists in milling, cutting, laser marking, injection molding and coating showed how process chains in medtech production can be skillfully exploited in order to create more added value.
September 15 to 17, 2015
The WMTF’s partners and the medtech industry expressed a clear wish to see the WMTF return in 2015. The current challenges faced by the sector are many and varied. The effects are perceptible and measurable. Thus, for example, innovation-led activity in the Swiss medtech industry has declined significantly according to a KOF study. The organizing partners have taken this state of affairs on board. Now that the first two WMTFs in 2012 and 2013 have established the event’s position in the market, the next World Medtech Forum Lucerne will be held from September 15 – 17, 2015.
