The 4th annual UK HealthTech conference will be a valuable day of briefings and networking for those within the life science and health technology communities, and research clinicians from the NHS.

Over 300 delegates are expected to come together to understand critical strategic trends that will impact on their businesses. The event offers the latest insights from key opinion leaders as well as a unique opportunity to engage with industry, UK regulatory, the clinical community and funding bodies. Attracting delegates from 20 countries and four continents, last year was a highly international event with global impact and excellent export opportunities.

With 45 exhibitor spaces, UK HealthTech provides an excellent opportunity to showcase the strength and innovation of the healthcare community. During the day, you will be able to visit the exhibition to meet leading companies and academic and clinical communities, specialising in medical technology, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, across research, manufacturing and healthcare delivery.

Listen to expert speakers, explore the exhibition, attend one-to-one partnering meetings and embrace excellent networking opportunities at UK HealthTech 2015.
