Trade fair, congress and event organiser Messe Frankfurt India has joined hands with integrated medical devices manufacturing ecosystem Andhra Pradesh MedTech Zone(AMTZ) to launch the MedTech Innovation Forum that aims to draw attention to the growth opportunities and latest developments in the Indian medical device industry.

Slated from October 7-8, 2021 in Visakhapatnam, the first edition of this key business event is expected to bring industry leadership together with Government and medical consultants to address integral challenges of import dependency, need for technology collaborations as well as medical technology advancements that can be introduced in the industry.
Raj Manek, Managing Director, Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India Pvt Ltd said, “India’s response and agility in scaling up manufacturing of medical devices together with strong initiatives by the Government on making the sector ‘aatmanirbhar’ makes it an opportune time to introduce a forum that focuses on bringing medical technology innovations to the forefront. We are proud to combine strengths with AMTZ in this goal and are confident that the critical insights on MedTech advancements and challenges will enable the sector to create an environment for improved trade and investment opportunities.”
Dr Jitendra Sharma, MD & CEO, Andhra Pradesh MedTech Zone said, “The industry is poised for significant growth in the next five years, however, it is still largely import-driven with 90% of sophisticated devices being imported from around the world. The dialogue with medical device manufacturers and innovators will open up opportunities to empower the country’s strong healthcare and medical devices industry in the post-COVID-19 era. AMTZ aims to put the Indian medical device industry on the global map by encouraging sector innovations and we are happy to join hands with Messe Frankfurt in this endeavour as their expertise and reach across sectors in India will help bring in key stakeholders together.”
