Veronafiere promotes the Italian biomedical industry with the launch of the first edition of Innovabiomed – The networking venue for the bio-medical industry, the home to meetings and comparisons for experts in the production of medical devices.

Veronafiere continues to expand and diversify its portfolio of events, thanks to its new start-up – Innovabiomed, Italy’s new landmark bio-medical event scheduled 23-24 January 2018 in Verona. The event is being organized, in collaboration with Veronafiere, by the Mirandola district – known as the “Italian Biomedical Silicon Valley” – and RPM Media Srl Group.

Medical devices – a domestic market worth 10 billion euros – are characterized by high technology and rapid innovation in a field where Italy plays a leading international role. Italy boasts 4,480 companies in the biomedical sector, with 70,000 employees. 69% of companies and 83% of sales are concentrated in five regions: Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Lazio, Veneto and Tuscany (source: Assobiomedica 2016 Report).
