The MedTech Conference will bring more than 2,600 leaders in medical technology, including CEOs, venture capitalists, and policymakers to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) and contribute an estimated $9.49m in forecasted economic impact direct spending to the city.
The bid win marks the first time The MedTech Conference will take place outside of the US. Recognised as the fastest growing technology market in North America, Toronto is home to half of Canada’s medical technology companies and most top 25 global medical technology companies operate in the region.
"It says a lot about Toronto that AdvaMed chose this city to be their first conference outside the U.S. and we’re thrilled they have," said Johanne Belanger, president and CEO of Tourism Toronto. "Toronto’s Life Science sector is thriving and the city is fast becoming a tech superpower on the global stage."
The city’s health sciences sector is also ranked among the best in the world, along with its researchers.
The convention will take place October 5-7, 2020.
