As you know, nothing is more compelling than the truth. And the truth which we want to bring to you is that the companies in Tuttlingen, a centre of medical engineering expertise, have plenty of exciting innovations to offer. How would it be if you could collect the latest innovations combined in one day at one location, combined more efficiently than even a visit to a trade fair? This is the opportunity that the MedicalMountains IMPRESSDAY offers you.

The list of conceivable topics is long, derived directly from practical application and therefore offering readers a great deal of benefits. All these innovations are just waiting to be discovered and turned into a report, an article, a feature or a success story during the international trade press day. MedicalMountains AG, a regional cluster organisation with an international network, has invited not only major industry players but also technology SMEs in particular to participate in IMPRESSDAY, and and they are a particularly worthwhile discovery.

The event gets off to an early start on Tuesday, 5 July at Aesculap AG, followed by an “electrifying” programme.
A shuttle service, accommodation and catering are provided, and all further information can be found on this site.
