Business & Networking

Come together and explore potential partnerships

Meet, connect and match live and digital with healthcare professionals across the MedTech community. After more than a year of so much distance, our mission is to create an inspiring, collaborative and qualitive networking experience for all attendees: opportunities, challenges, new insights, and business/research partnerships lie ahead. Physicians, researchers, companies, governments, financiers, talented students and citizens: together we empower our future healthcare with medical technology.  

The TechMed Event pays a lot of attention to practical application: how medical innovation from the collaboration between technicians and clinicians can be deployed more quickly. Developing a business case is a common thread through the program. And there are many opportunities for networking to find potential new partners.
