MediWales' October Update

Less than 3 months to Christmas and more importantly our UK HealthTech conference and MediWales Innovation Awards.

There is still time to apply for both our Industry Innovation Awards and the NHS NISCHR Awards. The deadline is Friday October 25th so please contact Julie if you wish to apply.

The MediWales Innovation Awards and the UK HealthTech Conference are planned for 10th Dec 2013- these are be held at the National Museum of Wales and the Hilton, Cardiff respectively. Keep the date free in your diaries! Registrations are now open for the conference and further information about sponsorship packages is available. Please visit for more information, confirmed speakers etc. Exhibition space is filling up fast!

September was a busy month for us, and we were out and about at events such as Sony's 'Made in the UK' open day and Penn Pharma's opening. October looks to be no different and Medica, although just over a month away, will soon be with us.
Debbie and I are heading to Medica so please make sure you come and say hello.

We welcome a new member to the fold this month- CLEARTECHLive. Cleartechlive is an Audiovisual rental and exhibition production company we specialise mainly in the medical and Bio Science sectors supplying exhibition stands across the UK and Europe
