When it premiered in 2019, MedtecLIVE emerged as Europe's second largest medical technology trade show. More than 4,500 visitors from fifty countries attended the trade fair that year. They had in part come to see 402 exhibitors, of which more than half came from abroad. These figures indicate that MedtecLIVE has from the start been an event with global reach. Organizers say that its success shows the industry welcomed MedtecLIVE's focus on the entire value chain of medical technology, from the initial concept to production and processes further downstream.
