The European Tech Tour Association will present its third Medtech Summit on October 16-17th 2012 with 100+ delegates and 25 presenting ceos. Europe is uniquely positioned in the medtech environment as THE place for clinical and technical innovation. Europe's aging population provides ample market opportunities for start ups to bring effective and cost efficient solutions to treat patients.

This edition's theme will be 'Bridge to Asia'.

Asia provides growth and critical mass with Japan as the second largest market and China to become the third largest world market in the coming decade.

Beyond efficient operational models and access to high growth markets, Asia is now well positioned to offer critical capabilities in terms of quality product development, clinical trials, financing and exit opportunities. This edition of the Medtech Summit will gather relevant medtech actors in the Asia to provide an opportunity to nurture this topic.
