More “IT security” at MT-CONNECT 2018


As a topic of current interest, IT security will enjoy greater prominence at MT-CONNECT 2018 and complement the range of themes covered by the exhibition. The event, to be held at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg on 11-12 April 2018 in conjunction with the international congress MedTech Summit – Congress and Partnering, will once again strive to appeal to all manufacturer and supplier fields in medical technology. “The growth in networking is creating new challenges for manufacturers in terms of IT security,” says exhibition director Alexander Stein. “That’s something we will be addressing.”

NürnbergMesse can count on broad professional support in this area: the event will be supported by an expert committee consisting of the ZVEI (German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association), IVAM Microtechnology Network, BVMed (German Medical Technology Association), the MedTech Pharma forum and Medical Valley, together with manufacturers Siemens Healthineers and Peter Brehm. SPECTARIS, the German High-Tech Industry Association, has now also expressed its support for MT-CONNECT.

Exhibitors can register from now. Early registrants can enjoy a discount of EUR 10 per square metre of stand area until 27 October 2017.
