In October, the leading executives and medical device engineers of the Irish medtech sector will head to Galway to discuss the latest developments in the industry, technologi- cal trends and regulatory issues. Visitors will be able to gain an impression of the capabilities of the numerous exhibitors ranging from contract manufacturers and material suppliers to design and regulatory consultants. The exhibition is accom- panied by the free conference boasting around 40 industry experts in a number of panels dedicated to various medical disciplines, such as Cardiovascular and Orthopaedics. Building upon the success of last year's show, the Medtec Start-Up Academy will again be one of the highlights of the event. Young companies from all over Ireland will present their revolutionary ideas and new technologies. The winners of the contest will be able to compete against other European start- ups at Medtec Europe 2016.
