The events will be held at the Nehru Center in Mumbai, with free attendance to the exhibition but paid admittance only for the conference. India's medical device manufacturing sector is currently worth around $2 billion, an amount expected to triple by 2015. The two-day exhibition in Mumbai will showcase everything from biomaterials through to high-tech manufacturing technology, the latest in pharmaceutical and device packaging and sterilization, as well as best-in-class contract manufacturing services.  

According to the organizers, our colleagues in UBM Canon's trade show business unit, the accompanying MEDTEC India Conference will provide delegates with insights into how to develop and build world-class products, how best-in-class manufacturing can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of medical device OEMs and their supply chains, and more.

Speakers will share their insight to Indian manufacturers, and to foreign firms locating in India, on how to access both domestic and international markets. Experts from the medical device market will provide tactical information on how to establish or improve and maintain a robust, compliant medical technology development program. Just as important, it will provide ample opportunity to network with peers.

The conference program on Wednesday, October 19 will open with a keynote speech by Yashdeep Kumar, managing directory of Stryker in India, who will discuss "Medical technology in India today." Then there will be a panel discussion on "India's new medical device law," moderated by Satish Tripathi, president, Biomedical Consulting Inc., and including Sumati Randeo from Abbott Vascular and Sanjay Arudi of GE Healthcare India.

Dipesh Shah, assistant country director of the FDA office in Mumbai, will discuss "U.S. FDA update: post market issues and inspectional trends." V. Ramesh, general manager of the Medical and Health Services Unit of TUV SUD South Asia, presents an "International standards update" and Sumati Randeo, head of regulatory, quality and compliance Asia Pacific for Abbot Vascular, talks about "Harmonizing your submissions process for global market access."
