The Countdown to Medical Technology UK 2023

Medical Technology UK returns to Coventry Building Society Arena on 22-23 March 2023. This unique event focuses exclusively on designing, developing and producing medical devices (of all classes) IVD’s, dental and healthcare. It serves the needs of the UK’s diverse medical device manufacturing industry, the third largest in Europe.

It is the sister event to the similarly focused, highly regarded and respected Medical Technology Ireland (Med-Tech), now in its sixth extremely successful year.

Medical Technology UK 2023 is a two-day exhibition showcasing 150 specialist companies from all medical device manufacturing supply chain tiers. In tandem with the unrivalled exhibition is the Learning Programme. Together, it is an event that is designed to inform, educate, inspire and aid the process of bringing next-generation and new medical devices to market more efficiently, profitably and effectively.

Part of this year’s Learning Programme, Medical Technology UK is thrilled that Prof. Tony Young, National Clinical Lead for Innovation at NHS England, will be chairing and presenting in a conference session on the “Future of Medical Technology Innovation” on Wednesday, 22 March. Together with Alex Driver, Head of Industrial Design, Team Consulting; Steve May-Russell, CEO, Smallfry; and Morven Shearlaw, Co-founder & Director, Fearsome, it’s a must-attend for all medical device design and R&D engineers.

The illuminating “Young MedTech Entrepreneurs” conference session will be chaired by Prof. Graham Ball, Director of the Medical Technologies Research Centre at Anglia Ruskin University, on Thursday, 23 March from 10.30 – 12.30.  He will present on Integrating Academic, Clinical and Commercial Med Tech Development through the Medical Technology Research Centre of Anglia Ruskin University and introduce some award-winning young entrepreneurs, including James Roberts, CEO of mOm Incubators; Joseph Bentley, Founder & Managing Director of ACT Medical and  Kate Walker, Founder & CEO at Exphand Prosthetics.

The ever-popular Women in MedTech Forum, chaired by Dr Helen Meese, CEO and Founder of the Care Machine, features a fantastic line-up of speakers this year, including Michelle Sullivan, Head of Public Affairs, UK & Ireland at Boston Scientific; Noor Jaffar, Process Engineer, Maintenance and Engineering at Baxter Healthcare Corporation; Beth Hindle, Senior Design Assurance Engineer at Stryker; and Mary Ryan, Director of Innovation, Technology & Regulatory Affairs at Penlon.  Don’t miss this chance to hear about the career journeys and forward-thinking initiatives these amazing women will share on Thursday, 23 March at 12.45 – 14.15.

Colin Martin, Event Director, said, “The event exists to support and encourage the development of the whole industry from university spinouts, SMEs to nationals and multinationals. By providing this unique, business-to-business, face-to-face occasion, medical device OEMs, their engineers, procurement and supply chain managers and senior executives can attend and engage with specialist companies across all tiers of the supply chain that feed the outstanding innovation the industry is globally recognised for. A focused event attracts a focused audience and is conducive to a highly effective working environment where business occurs.
