Organiser UBM has announced the immediate closure of its medical device exhibitions and conferences, Medtec, in the UK, France and Italy, in an attempt to grow its main European edition. The closures follow the cancellation of UBM’s US-based wireless technology show 4G World and its May Design Series trade fair in London.
The organiser claimed, in a written statement, that the latest closures were part of a strategy to boost attendance at the company’s main Medtec Europe event in Stuttgart. The next edition will be held on 12-14 April 2016.
