The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) is thrilled to host a Virginia pavilion at the Medica tradeshow for the second year, expanding the space and the number of companies from six last year to eight this year. Medica is a great show for non-pharma companies supplying healthcare providers (hospitals, clinics, etc.). It’s great for medical devices, equipment, wearables, consumables – products and technology for treating patients.
VEDP has identified Analytica, in Munich in April 2024, as the premier show in Europe for a wide array of products, services, and new technology in and for life science industries upstream from healthcare providers. A quick summary of the show:
