Mediplas delighted to announce partnership with Medilink UK
Held at The NEC, Birmingham, 25-26th September 2012, Mediplas is a unique event for the highly specialised area of manufacturing plastic parts for the medical industry. The exhibition, which will cover all areas of the medical plastics supply chain, differentiates itself from general plastics shows, as it brings to the forefront aspects and considerations of medical device manufacturing that do not feature in production for other industries. It is also different from existing medical device events because it specialises in plastics — the new material of choice as biocompatible plastics and polymer compounds continue to replace metal and ceramics in the medical industry.
Medilink UK is a leader in developing business networks for medical and healthcare companies. It works with members to increase their viability in the market and grow their medical business through technology and knowledge transfer from Universities and the NHS and achieves this by bridging the gap between those who innovate and those who manufacture. Medilink West Midlands’ Connectivity Director Chris Dyke, who will also be presenting at the Mediplas conference, said: “The medical plastics supply chain is a dynamic, growing market, and there are plenty of innovative firms that are paving the way for new processes, materials and products for patient treatment. It’s great to see a new show this year, which recognises the unique challenges, and opportunities this sector faces, and Medilink is delighted to work with Mediplas to raise awareness of the show. I’m also looking forward to bringing our expertise to the show, both as an exhibitor and as a speaker.”
Delighted to be welcoming Medlink on board, Duncan Wood, COO at Rapid News Communications, commented: “It is great to have the support of Medilink on our launch event. We value their contribution and support and look forward to delivering a successful event in partnership with the medical plastics community."
Further support for Mediplas 2012 comes from Med-Tech Innovation, the magazine and website for the UK and Irish medical device research, design and manufacturing community. Both Medilink UK and Med-Tech Innovation will be co-exhibiting on the show floor. Another key media partner is Medical Plastics News, the essential source of technology breakthroughs and industry intelligence for manufacturers of plastic medical devices and components.
