Darmstadt, 30 September 2015
Managing director of Mechatronic AG supports the further development of the medical technology trade fair.
Darmstadt – 30 September 2015. Thomas Ullmann from Mechatronic AG has become a member of the strategic advisory board of Medtec Europe. The speaker of the executive board of the medical technology company will be involved in defining the strategic guidelines for the future of Medtec. The 13-member committee will also discuss how the fair can be made more attractive for trade visitors. Drawing more than 6,000 visitors annually, it is Europe’s largest trade fair for development and manufacture in the medical technology field and a key rendezvous for experts.
Ullmann has worked at Mechatronic AG for 25 years and few know the medical technology industry as well. In his 11 years as chief executive officer, he has turned Mechatronic AG into one of the top addresses for research and development of medical technology equipment. ‘Medtec is an important platform for our industry. I am looking forward to actively participating in the further development of this major trade fair.’
In Ullman’s view, the main purpose of the board is to act in an advisory capacity. ‘Despite digitisation, trade fairs now have a key responsibility – to offer the opportunity for face-to-face contact.’ In order to meet all concerns, the advisory board is extremely diversified. Doctors, scientists and members from different manufacturers work together in finding solutions. Chris Edwards, Event Director at Medtec EMEA, sums up: ‘The fair’s advisory board ensures that the Medtec Europe brand remains faithful to its mission.’
