PTA at MEDICA 2017: Successful trade fair appearance for the Mannheim-based consulting company

PTA presents itself at MEDICA as an IT provider for the life science sector

The MEDICA is the world’s largest medical trade fair with a focus on medical technology, health or pharmaceuticals and last week attracted more than 120,000 visitors. This year, PTA GmbH was also present and experienced four successful days in Düsseldorf.

MEDICA as a global meeting place for the medical industry

MEDICA takes place every year in November together with COMPAMED, the international trade fair for medical technology, in Düsseldorf. More than 60 percent of the 123,000 trade visitors this year were international participants from 130 nations. This underlines MEDICA’s global position.

A major theme at this year’s MEDICA was above all digitalisation, which permeates all areas of care. Dematerialisation is another trend. Innovations in the medical field increasingly consist of new software solutions and less of hardware.

PTA experiences a successful trade fair appearance

As an exhibitor PTA GmbH was represented at MEDICA with a stand within the “Medical Cluster”. The goal: to show presence and to get into conversation with potential customers or partners from Germany and Switzerland. Therefore a campaign was already started in advance and appointments for the fair were made.

“MEDICA was definitely a success for us, even though most of the major players were not on site and a large international audience visited the fair,” sums up Thomas Steinmann, Managing Director of PTA Schweiz GmbH. “We were able to hold some promising talks and present ourselves as an IT provider in the life science sector. In the follow-up we will now see whether projects will develop from this”.

What speaks for PTA: The IT consulting company recently received ISO certification for medical products. This means that PTA fulfils the high regulatory requirements and clearly defined specifications that are required for medical devices and can now also develop according to its own quality management system. This means less effort for customers, because in the end only the handover is done and no longer needs to be developed on site.
