T4M Trade Fair Advisory Board introduces itself

02.11.2018 - 11:51

The future of the trade fair to be formed by 3 companies, two cluster organisations, a research institute, three associations and two industry media

From 7 to 9 May 2019, T4M – Technology for Medical Devices – will be held for the first time at the Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre. To ensure that the new trade fair for medical technology meets the requirements of the sector, the T4M team is working closely with the Trade Fair Advisory Board. The importance of the Trade Fair Advisory Board is underlined by Dr. Elmar Bourdon, who was for many years the MedicaDevice industry manager and today works for the Mannheim MedicaTechnology Cluster: "With its impulses for the T4M trade fair concept, the Advisory Board can hopefully contribute to helping the exhibitors and visitors find exactly what they're looking for at T4M: Business partners and answers to the technological and corporate challenges in the industry." For him personally, the cooperation with the T4M trade fair team and the T4M Advisory Board is an excellent opportunity to participate in the current developments in the individual segments and to obtain points of contact for his own network.

Many heads, clear concepts
The future of the trade fair is now to be formed by 13 companies, two cluster organisations, a research institute, three associations and two industry media together with the T4M team. Each member of the Medical Technology Advisory Board will exhibit individually, assume a responsible role in the framework programme of the trade fair, or is an important opinion maker. "We all benefit in the Advisory Board from the perspectives and thoughts of the others. I'm positively surprised at how open all the Board members discuss and how quickly agreement is reached in fundamental questions," says Tanja Wendling, Project Manager for T4M. "With the Board members at our side, we feel we are even better informed, and can categorise the requirements of the medical technology sector more accurately in order to make T4M as a specialist trade fair with a strong technological orientation as industry-specific as possible."
