Implants Conference to Attract Major Names

Implants has become one of the major European exhibitions and conferences for the outsourcing of and solutions to orthopedic implants and biomaterials, with more than 500 attendees and 50 booths in a 2,000sqm exhibit area and 30 renowned international speakers.

Implants 2009 is seen as the preferred meeting venue between orthopedic companies, raw material suppliers, contract manufacturers, R&D services, physicians and surgeons. Through professional and well-organised presentations, dynamic exchanges and key plenary sessions, Implants 2009 is more than capable of providing answers to pressing questions, such how to bridge the gap between the needs of medical practitioners and physicians and what the competition offers.

Issues being discussed at this year’s conference include markets and strategies, orthopedic regulations, pricing and reimbursement and trends in Europe, a complete overview of the worldwide orthopedic and contract manufacturing market, innovation and R&D product trends, new ways and processes to manufacture orthopedic implants and financial issues.

The 50 international exhibitors offer your company the opportunity to mingle with major actors and demonstrate new technologies to key decision makers of the value chain and future partners. It will be of particular interest if your company is an actor of orthopedic implants, biomaterials, materials and mechanics dedicated to the medical industry, medical devices, forging, casting, raw materials, coating or machining.
