As the first day of MEDICA 2022 drew to a close, guests assembled for a large cocktail reception on Monday evening to celebrate a quarter of a century of Medilink UK supporting life sciences innovators in the UK. During this time, Medilink has helped hundreds of Medtech companies large and small achieve growth, profitability and commercial success.
Medilink was honoured to have the British Consul-General of Düsseldorf, Rafe Courage, open the proceedings, which not only marked the organisation’s 25th anniversary, but also coincided with Medilink’s 20th year of delivering the Medilink UK Pavilion at MEDICA. With 60 exhibitors taking space this year, the Pavilion was the largest to date. Also present at the reception were Christian Grosser, Director of Medica and Mr Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director Messe Düsseldorf.
The event was attended by around 300 guests who heard the Consul-General congratulate Medilink on its history of helping life sciences companies innovate and prosper by delivering international, regulatory and commercialization consultancy support.
Managing Director at Medilink North of England, Tom Elliott, expressed his thanks on behalf of Medilink UK.
‘We are honoured that the Consul-General was able to take time out of his busy schedule to open our reception and thank him for his support, particularly during these challenging economic times.
We are also grateful to the many colleagues who have joined us to celebrate this fantastic milestone and thank them for their kind wishes, with a big thank you to Christian Grosser, Director of Medica and Mr Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director Messe Düsseldorf who both came to congratulate us on our anniversary.
‘Medilink has been dedicated to furthering the interests of UK companies in the life sciences sector for the past 25 years and will continue to provide its support for this dynamic and innovative sector of the UK economy. Once again MEDICA provides the perfect platform to present their medical solutions to a global audience and engage face-to-face with potential clients and collaborators. We wish all of our exhibitors a successful show.’
As the Lead UK partner of exhibition organisers, Messe Düsseldorf, Medilink UK are also supporting an additional 50 companies from the North of England and Midlands regions attending trade missions with the Department for International Trade (DIT).
