The MD&M West exhibition, which took place in Anaheim, CA during the second week of February, is regarded as the world’s largest exhibition for medical design and manufacturing. For the first time IVAM Microtechnology Network organized a joint pavilion to support its member companies and other high-tech enterprises to enter the American market. A total of eleven companies from Europe, Asia and America took the opportunity to present their technologies, services and products and to generate new contacts.
The key issues were manufacturing and processing for materials that are used in medical devices, such as polymers and other plastic materials, metal alloys, glass or silicon as well as 3D structuring for the production of medical components.
Functional coatings with antimicrobial characteristics, smart textiles, e-health solutions and innovative monitoring systems were also topics of the exhibition and the co-located conference.
“The exhibitors of our joint pavilion are really satisfied with the quality of their leads and they would like to exhibit at MD&M West again in 2015“, reports Dr. Thomas R. Dietrich, CEO of IVAM.
“Many companies from the field of micro, nano and materials have been exhibiting at MD&M West for several years. This is an indicator of how important this trade show is. Particularly for German companies the MD&M West offers an excellent opportunity to step into the American market“, adds Dietrich.
The IVAM Microtechnology Network is going to organize a joint pavilion in 2015 again and is thereby reinforcing its leading position as international high-tech network. In response to the great demand for next year's exhibition, IVAM is planning to expand the area. The joint pavilion will then be branded as a special area “MicroNanoTech“ to provide more guidance to the visitors.
Companies who are interested in exhibiting at the MD&M West are welcome to contact Ms. Orkide Karasu (email@example.com or +49 231 9742 7086). An early registration discount is possible.
