About Summit


Introducing MedDevice Ignition, your next move to grasp the prescience of the medical device market. An annual conference and expo aimed to provide a unique opportunity for academicians and industry executives.

It connects professionals and key decision-makers to network and learn best practices used in device regulation, market-entry, R&D, engineering and commercialization. Do not miss a chance to gain an exclusive demonstration of the medtech industry. Our agenda consists of panel discussion, seminars, podium dialogue, competitions, posters, product lunch, live and remote presentation.

Listen to the first-hand case studies presented by brightest minds and walk away with insights to streamline processes, optimize development, design, decrease risk, improve GTM strategy, reduce costs, and remain compliant in a rapidly evolving landscape.

Attendees can present their research work in the form of oral, poster, panel rounds, lectures, idea based sessions, lightning talks and virtual presentation. All presentation to be published in our book of abstracts.
