Finland is invited to participate in Swiss Medtech Day 2021 as a guest country, to present the Finnish way of digitalization in the public and private healthcare sector. The honorary guest speakers from Finland are Ms. Päivi Sillanaukee, Ambassador for Health and Wellbeing at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland and Mr. Pekka Kahri, Technology Officer at HUS Helsinki University Hospital.

Time: 8 – 15 September 2021
Place: Bern in Switzerland and online

This event is free of charge for Finnish companies and requires registration.

The agenda is divided into two parts:

  • Part 1 held on September 8: One-day physical event
  • Part 2 held on September 9-15: Online long-term matchmaking opportunity with companies from the Swiss medical technology sector on the b2match event platform.

Physical participation in the first part of the event on September 8 is possible according to current information but Finnish companies are recommended to participate only in the second part of the event, the online matchmaking on September 9-15.

The event is targeted at Finnish companies offering innovative contract manufacturing and digital solutions for the healthcare sector and MedTech partners. Participation in the event offers Finnish companies the opportunity to connect with suppliers and experts, service providers, manufacturers and distributors from the Swiss MedTech sector.

As Finland is the guest country of the event, the Finnish know-how in the healthcare sector will receive special attention and companies can utilize this for online matchmaking opportunities. Business Finland will help coordinate the Finnish participation and support the companies before and during the event.

Please note that before registering, you will need a voucher. To receive the vouchers for both parts of the event, please contact Ms. Sanna Sipilä-Axnix. The vouchers for physical participation on September 8 are limited and will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis.
