Professor Tony Young to give Keynote speech at Medical Technology UK 2023

Medical Technology UK 2023 is privileged to announce that Professor Tony Young OBE will deliver the keynote speech at the event, which is uniquely dedicated to the design, development and production of medical devices.

Professor Young holds a number of current positions, namely;

  • National Clinical Lead for Innovation at NHS England
  • Consultant Urological Surgeon and Associate Medical Director at Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust
  • Director of Medical Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Anglia Ruskin University

In addition to the Keynote, Tony will chair a morning conference session that will form part of the renowned "Learning Programme". The Learning Programme will run in tandem with the major exhibition that will showcase circa 150 specialist companies from all tiers of the medical device manufacturing supply and process chain.

In the "Future of Medical Device Innovation" session, Tony will be joined by Steve May Russell from Smallfry Industrial Design and Alex Driver who is with Team Consulting. Both bring their years of experience of designing award winning devices to the event and they will discuss what the future holds for medical device manufacturers and the industry.

The entire event is for manufacturers of medical devices of all classes. Specifically, it represents an unrivalled opportunity for the engineering community, supply and process chain management and senior executives to gather, meet, listen, learn and ultimately, do business.

Held at the Coventry Building Society Arena, it has excellent access by road, rail and air and the organisers provide free parking, as well as free access to the entire Exhibition and Learning Programme.

Visitor registration is already open for the event that will take place on 22-23 March.
