France is a major medical device market that really needs a dedicated exhibition and conference to serve the unique and expanding requirements of this growing industry sector.

    Exceeded in Europe only by Germany in terms of the production of medical devices, France's 2,000 medical manufacturers produced some EUR 10.5 Billion in finished medical devices in 2007. Spurred by the increasing demands of an aging population, the French medical manufacturing market continues to expand at nearly 7% per year.

In selecting Besancon, Canon has strategically positioned its new trade fair in the heart of the highest concentration of medical manufacturing in France. Franche-Comte is an internationally renowned centre for microtechnology. Within this region and the surrounding regions of Rhone-Alp, Bourgogne, Champagne, Lorraine, and Alsace, there are nearly 1,000 medical manufacturing facilities employing thousands of medical OEM professionals. Besancon is also strategically located on the border with French speaking Western Switzerland, 'Suisse Romande', making MEDTEC France a unique showcase for Swiss medical technology companies as well.

Joining the 300-company exhibition at MEDTEC France will be a dedicated conference addressing issues of special interest to the French medical manufacturing industry. "We are very excited to introduce MEDTEC France to our expanding family of events in Europe and around the world," said Mark Temple-Smith, Canon's Event Director for Europe and Asia. "France is a major medical device market that really needs a dedicated exhibition and conference to serve the unique and expanding requirements of this growing industry sector."
