MEDTEC China 2013: The Leading Medical Device Manufacturing Event In Asia Moves To A New Level

SHANGHAI, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center will once again host MEDTEC China this coming September 25-26. And this year, the Exhibition of Design and Manufacturing Technology for Medical Device Manufacturers in China is all set to rise to new levels in terms of scale and quality, as well as location. This year's event will grace Hall 2 of the site that hosted the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, which is located at the easily accessible and prominent ground floor level close to the China Pavilion. The show floor will play host to a record 220 direct exhibitors representing more than 400 brands, while net space has grown by 15% compared with the previous show.

Eight years on from its debut in Shanghai, MEDTEC China has firmly established itself as the leading forum for the fast-growing medical device manufacturing industry in China, as evidenced by the turnout at MEDTEC China 2012. Two-hundred-and-five medical device manufacturing and development-related solution suppliers representing 360 brands exhibited at MEDTEC China in 2012. The show hosted a record 7,239 qualified visitors from leading medical device manufacturers such as BD Diagnostics, B. Braun Medical, Stryker, Siemens, Covidien, Microport Medical and Philips. The conference program, meanwhile, attracted 450 delegates.

And if satisfaction levels are anything to go by, the event is proving second to none. Fully 43% of visitors confirmed that they represented a company with plans for purchasing within 12 months, with an average $261,800 involved in their purchase plans. This translates to $156 million of planned purchases.

Exhibitors were thus highly satisfied with the quality of these visitors. Commented Russ Sabac, Technical Sales Manager at exhibitor Brunk Industries, "My experience at MEDTEC China 2012 was productive and [I found it to be a] very satisfying show. The visitors and leads were numerous, as the show was the busiest show of the many that Brunk Industries exhibits at each year. The venue was pleasant and more conveniently located for multiple reasons. We received RFQs for various stamped parts before I even returned home. Overall the experience was very good and I hope the show continues to grow and keep providing opportunities to grow our business with the many good companies in China."

If your company is serious about playing a primary role in China's growing medical device manufacturing sector, mark these dates on your calendar: 25-26 September 2013. During these two days, the ninth edition of MEDTEC China will open its doors to an industry that has recorded double-digit growth rates for the past 12 years. In 2011, the medical device market was valued at RMB120 billion and it is forecast to grow to more than RMB300 billion by 2015 based on current growth rates and the relatively low level of penetration of devices compared with developed overseas markets.

Exhibitor Update: Strong Commitment Once Again

Eighty percentof the floor space for MEDTEC China 2013 was pre-booked before the conclusion of the 2013 event, and indications are that it will once again prove to be a bumper event. To date, around 160 medical device industry companies have signed up for the event. Reconfirming their presence at this year's show are long-term supporters 3M China, ATS Automation, Avery Dennison, Bluestar Silicones, DSM Biomedical, Ensinger, Evonik Industries, Fort Wayne Metals, HnG Medical, Johnson Matthey, Laserage Technology, Mikron, Parker Hannifin, PolyOne, Qosina, Tornos and Zeus.

Returning for the second time to the show are Baumann Springs, Lifeguard Medical Technology, Pro-Tech Precision Mold, and Suzhou Autovak Automation Equipment. Debutant exhibitors include Dow Corning, Noanix, Billerud, SABIC Innovative Plastics and Cincinnati Test Systems.
