SHANGHAI, June 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MEDTEC China South 2015 came to a successful conclusion on April 21. As an extension of MEDTEC China 2015, MEDTEC China South has been recognized by industry insiders through its professional and global attributes, standing out as a key event for the medical device manufacturing industry in Southern China. After many years of challenges, this year marks the successful return of the MEDTEC brand to Shenzhen 10 years after the event first debuted there in 2005.
The most professional medical device manufacturing event
MEDTEC China South 2015 attracted 2,971 professional visitors from 24 countries and overseas regions, and brought together 76 exhibiting brands from the USA, Germany, Switzerland, Singapore and China and other countries and regions. During the two-day exhibition, the organizers prepared content-rich conferences and forums for over 600 participants from the healthcare industry.

Based on the global influence of the MEDTEC brand, many long-time exhibitors also attended MEDTEC China South.
"MEDTEC China South helped us to enlarge the regional market," said Gerard Zhu, sales manager of TE Connectivity. "We met a lot of new customers here and we'll be back again next year,"
Exhibitors at MEDTEC China South appreciated the high quality of visitors. Linda Liu from Shenzhen Sinowares Technology, Ltd commented: "The visitors here are very professional. We communicated with many professionals from China and foreign countries about production and technologies of medical devices and needle tubing, and reached an agreement on cooperation. We plan to participate in MEDTEC China South again next year."
A series of professional conferences and forums
Alongside the trade show itself, MEDTEC China South prepared content-rich conferences and forums for manufacturers, including the 3rd Biomaterials Innovation Conference BIOMED, the 5th Interventional & Implanted Medical Device Conference IIMD, and the MEDTEC Innovation Technology Forum, providing additional opportunities for medical innovation exchange. Furthermore, to match the features of Shenzhen's export-oriented economy, MEDTEC cooperated with NAMSA -- the world's leading medical device contract research organization -- to convene the Medical Device Regulations & Testing Forum, thereby assisting Chinese enterprises to venture abroad. "The content of these conferences was to the point and very helpful to understand the development of this industry," said Zhao Zhikun from Evonik.
