Department for International Trade announces MEDICA programme



The Department for International Trade (DIT) has unveiled its programme supporting UK life science businesses to bolster trade partnerships at MEDICA 2022.

A dedicated UK Pavilion Presentation Theatre hosted on the UK Pavilion will showcase the strengths of UK life sciences for the first time.

Organised by the DIT, the Association of British HealthTech Industries (ABHI) and co-sponsored by law firm Sidley Austin, the theatre will run for the full four days at the show, providing UK companies with an unprecedented platform to demonstrate their innovations to international buyers and forge new partnerships.

The new platform will offer UK companies a unique platform to showcase their latest innovations to all markets.

The DIT’s MedTech and Genomics Specialist, Dr Neil Ebenezer will take to the stage to present on a number of key topics, including the Potential Future UK MedTech Regulatory Framework, the UK MedTech Landscape and changes to IP since the end of the Brexit transition period.

The Department will also launch its UK international MedTech proposition, showcasing a glimpse into the UK’s capabilities and opportunities across the MedTech sector and articulating its exportable strengths.

This proposition will be used to inform DIT’s global network of the UK’s strengths in key areas such a medical devices, diagnostics and research and innovation, and underlining the UK’s position as a world-class life science powerhouse.

UK life science companies at the exhibition are also being invited to meet with DIT Commercial Officers and Key Buyers from the UK’s biggest export markets.

The meetings will take place virtually the week before MEDICA for any Commercial Officers not able to attend in person, as well in person on the joint ABHI & DIT Stand throughout the exhibition.

Meanwhile, UK companies will have the opportunity to select, meet with and showcase their business to experts for bespoke 1-2-1 advice to help explore their global potential.

The platform for booking 1:1 meetings with DIT market experts is now live.

Dr Aphrodite Spanou, Director for Science & Technology at the Department for international Trade, said:

“We are excited to welcome our UK delegates to MEDICA 2022.

“Our experts will support them in exploring markets to help them take their medical technologies solutions overseas.

“We have a packed programme of activity planned and are looking forward to working with all UK partners at the exhibition.”
