Medical Technology Ireland will attract the major multinationals and suppliers both locally, nationally and internationally to exhibit and meet the crème of the Irish medical device community. An effective marketing campaign will deliver Product and R&D Engineers, Project/Process Management, QA/QC, Manufacturing, Regulatory and Purchasing professionals across a two-day programme, packed with content, innovation and networking.
The medical technology sector in Ireland is recognised as one of the five global emerging hubs. The sector employs over 38,000 people in Ireland and is the second largest employer of medtech professionals in Europe, per capita. Ireland is one of the largest exporters of medical products in Europe with annual exports of €12.6 billion and companies directly export to over 100 countries worldwide.
As many as 9 of the world's top 10 medical technology companies have a base in Ireland and 60% of the 450 medtech companies based in Ireland are indigenous. Pressures on healthcare systems have resulted in a greater focus on enhanced efficacy of treatments and cost reduction. There is no sense of complacency across the sector in Ireland where industry and Government alike are constantly looking for new ways to increase competitiveness, develop new capabilities and ultimately generate new sustainable growth
