ABHI International Launches Website To Promote UK MedTech Exporters

ABHI International has launched a new website called ABHI UK Pavilion to promote UK medical technology manufacturers to the world. This online resource will support the work of ABHI International in helping small to medium sized enterprises (SME) gain access to foreign markets for their innovative healthcare products.
The website will serve as an online media room, aimed at the international healthcare community - as well as the healthcare media - and will become an invaluable resource for anyone seeking information about the UK med-tech industry. This website will be a portal for providing visitors to international trade shows, such as Medica and Arab Health, with the latest news and information about the UK companies exhibiting at these major events. The website will become a one-stop-shop for keeping up to date with all the news, events, and new products on the UK export scene.
Paul Benton, Director of ABHI Exhibitions, said, “Through this portal UK companies will enjoy a vastly enhanced online visibility to potential buyers, distributors, clinicians, and anyone else with an interest in the UK medical technology industry from across the globe. Journalists can visit the site and find a substantial amount of ready-to-use information on UK companies and products, and visitors can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep updated.”
ABHI is a Government “Accredited Trade Organisation” (ATO). As an ATO ABHI organises the official UK pavilions at key medical technology exhibitions around the world. ABHI works closely with UK Trade and Investment and Department of Health International to ensure maximum benefit for UK pavilion exhibitors. This work includes supporting trade missions, and organising events to support and educate UK exporters.
Participation in the UK pavilion provides companies with exposure, opportunities, support and assistance that they would not receive attending independently. Eligible companies may also apply for government grants to support exhibition costs. ABHI streamlines exhibition preparation ensuring that companies save time and effort.
