“When I say there is no other conference like the Medical Devices 3P Forum, I don’t even have to exaggerate. This is the only event connecting project, portfolio and product managers and building bridges between their R&D and commercial worlds. Its complexity is one reason not to miss it, but what makes it special is how open-minded, friendly and eager to share you guys are. I am happy to come back to Berlin, this time in summer. Let’s learn, enjoy some good beer and meet interesting new people!”
– Kristina Priecelova, Senior Conference Producer at EBCG
2 events in 1: One conference focused on R&D, another on commercial world. All tracks, workshops and discussions perfectly aligned, which means you can build your own program from numerous options.
Baby won’t sit in the corner! If you want to just sit & listen, we are already so, so sorry. Too many workshops, discussions & campfire sessions won’t let you do that.

Hey there! You can catch up with some of our past attendees & speakers, but also build new connections during a plenty of networking sessions.
