New Medical Manufacturing Show for Japan
Los Angeles, CA — A new exhibition and conference, MEDTEC Japan, to serve the Japanese medical manufacturing industry, is being launched by Canon Communications LLC.

After the U.S., Japan is both the world's largest producer and consumer of medical devices. The combination of an aging population — one person in four is over the age of 65 — and a first rate healthcare standard, has produced a vibrant domestic medical manufacturing industry producing many of world's most sophisticated devices.

MEDTEC Japan joins Canon's family of established MEDTEC events serving the European, UK, Irish and Chinese medical device markets. The inaugural event is sponsored and supported by the Japan Federation of Medical Device Associations — an umbrella organization including 14 separate medical device associations that together represent Japan's 2,500 largest medical manufacturers. "The Japanese medical manufacturing market is an established, growing industry that will really benefit from a comprehensive international supplier event such as MEDTEC," said Charles G. McCurdy, Chairman and CEO of Canon.

The first edition of MEDTEC Japan will take place April 7-8, 2009 at the Pacifico Yokohama Convention Center located just outside Tokyo. The exhibition will showcase 275 U.S., European, Japanese and Pan-Asian medical OEM suppliers and is expected to attract an audience of 4,000 Japanese medical OEM design and manufacturing

professionals. A technical conference addressing new technology, applications and regulatory issues will run concurrently with the exhibition.
