At MD&M West in Anaheim - the largest American exhibition for design and manufacturing in medical technology - international high-tech suppliers meet at the beginning of the year. Among the approximately 20,000 visitors to the trade show each year are many developers and decision makers from the manufacturing industry. This also makes the trade fair a popular medical technology marketplace for component manufacturers from Europe and Asia.
 
At the international joint booth organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network in Hall C, component manufacturers from Germany, Great Britain, Austria and the USA will present their products and services in the special exhibition area "Micro Nanotech" from February 11 to 13.
