International Trade Show to take place in Geneva highlighting innovations in watchmaking, microtechnology and medtech
Posted on 04/04/2019
On 18 – 21 June 2019 the EPHJ – EPMT – SMT international trade show will be taking place at Palexpo Geneva in Switzerland. It’s a trade show that focuses on three sectors: EPHJ (Professional Watchmaking & Jewellery Environment) – EPMT (Microtechnology Professional Environment) – SMT (Swiss Medical Technologies).
The world’s largest high precision trade show will showcase high precision skills in watchmaking, jewellery, microtechnology and medical technology, with a focus on high-potential start-ups. The show will host more than 800 exhibitors from around 20 countries, with 20,000 professional visitors in attendance. Crucially, more than three quarters of exhibitors close deals thanks to the trade show.
The aim behind the trade show is to foster innovation, which is achievable through the ‘Watch Medtech Innovation’ challenge. This challenge aims to result in transdisciplinary projects, with watchmakers and medtech professionals combining to create wearable medical technology. The trade show will additionally host the Exhibitors’ Grand Prix, which offers increased media exposure for a company’s breakthrough innovation; last year’s winner was a start-up that assembled materials using Impulse Current Bonding rather than glue or welding.
The show provides a chance to meet prospective customers and suppliers, as well as to generate new business in a relaxed atmosphere. Some of the areas in which the exhibitors are operating within watchmaking, microtechnology and medtech include: the use of raw materials, CAD, packaging, marketing, design and manufacturing, aeronautics and automobile, automation and robotics/AI, optics/photonics, laser technologies, logistics, R&D, production equipment, implants, prosthetics and specialised medical devices.
