UK Medical Electronics Conference and Exhibition to be Launched by UMR

UK technology events organisers UMR have announced that they are to launch MEDELEC, a technology event focused specifically on the increasingly important role electronics components and embedded systems are playing in the design, development and manufacture of medical devices for the clinical and healthcare sectors. UMR will be building on the success that they have experienced with other events such as Advanced Automotive Electronics and Military and Aerospace Electronics.

The MEDELEC conference and exhibition will take place in Cambridge on 29th November 2011 and is expected to attract a broad range of engineers working in electronics, product design, biotechnology and software development. The event will be ideal for engineers seeking to keep abreast of new technology and those looking for an opportunity to discuss new projects, innovations, and design challenges with industry leading experts.

“We are very excited about this new launch which complements our portfolio of technical conferences for the embedded design market very well,” said David Williams, Director of UMR. "Most vendors we speak to confirm that they are either supplying the medical sector with embedded technologies, or are planning to in the near future as they see this as a fast-growing industry, and are pleased that they will now have a dedicated event where they can present their products and services. Exhibition stands have been selling fast with currently only ten available and we anticipate running out very soon"

Demand for such an event has been growing as UK technology companies have increasingly targeted the global medical device sector. The UK is now a leading player and a global centre of excellence in research and innovation in medical device technologies. The UK now has more specialist medical product design companies than in any other European country. The UK medical device market is also growing at 9% per year and is estimated to be worth more than £11 billion.

"There is definitely a swing back to shows and exhibitions,” said Williams. "Providing they are focused and offer engineers information and an experience that is of real value we are finding that our shows are growing in popularity with both vendors and engineers. There is simply no substitute to meeting face to face and having an in-depth discussion with an expert or maybe a hands-on demonstration of a new technology. We will be working hard to make sure this is such an event."

MEDELEC is the only technical event in the UK which focuses specifically on the increasingly important role that electronics components and embedded systems are playing in the design, development and manufacture of medical devices. The UK is a global centre of excellence in research and innovation, and this one-day conference and exhibition is being organised for electronics engineers and technical managers working in the clinical and healthcare sectors to learn about the very latest advances in medical electronics through the technical seminar programme and workshops, view demonstrations of innovative software and hardware technologies, and network with peers. This event will be held on 29th November 2011 in Cambridge.
