A GREAT START OF YOUR PARTICIPATION 

This year The 2020 TechMed Event will take place differently than before: we organize 60+ online sessions that take place between August and October. In this special period, where healthcare faces extreme challenges, we believe it is our duty to organize a MedTech event, or a TechMed Event, this year. Even though we can't get together physically, we are proud to have put together such a beautiful and diverse digital program together with the TechMed community. The series of events will contribute to the increase of your new contacts within the Healthcare community, the growth of a stronger and more cohesive MedTech ecosystem and you will update your MedTech knowledge.

We will start The 2020 TechMed Event with the Kick-off Meeting on August 27, 2020.  During this informative meeting we present the entire program and inspiring presentations will take place. The focus will be on the 5 areas of interest (AI & Intelligent Imaging, Personalized eHealth, Health Robotics, Nano Bio Tech and Innovation meets Industry) that will be the common theme throughout the event. What developments are going on? What does the future hold for us, with what opportunities and challenges? How do medical experts experience the current situation? Which organisations participate in the event? Each theme coordinator will briefly discuss the highlights of their sessions. In addition, the importance of collaboration, new contacts and the MedTech ecosystem is shared with you through inspiring lectures and a successful partnership that took place in the Corona period.

The TechMed Event platform will also be available from 27 August. Personalize your program by adding sessions to your own event calendar, meet other attendees: connect and start chatting and explore the possibilities that The 2020 TechMed Event has to offer.

Coming together, discussing, brainstorming and connecting online starts now!
