One of the largest medical shows in the Americas, FIME showcases the latest medical device technology and trends from across the globe.

The Florida International Medical Expo (FIME) kicked off today at the Miami Beach Convention Centre. Dan Gelber, Mayor of Miami Beach, participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the show.

FIME, organised by Informa Markets, hosts over 1,200 exhibitors, including 330 new exhibitors, and welcomes over 50,000 attendees from over 50 countries. Over the next three days, the event is creating a hub of knowledge exchange and shaping the future of healthcare. The show offers a unique business-to-business platform for professionals in the healthcare and medical sector. Through dedicated conference tracks, it will also shed light on the latest trends in tech innovation, start-ups, and artificial intelligence.

Mayor Gelber said: “I am thrilled to welcome all the show's visitors to Miami. With over 1,000 exhibitors, FIME is crucial in boosting our economy. But the real reason we are delighted to welcome the global healthcare community here is because you all do very important work and are showcasing some of the greatest advances in medical treatment that will play a role in saving lives. What you all do is vital and critical to the world's wellness, and for that, we're very grateful that you chose our city to host the exhibition.”

Dr. Mukesh Agrawal, Head-International Business & Strategy, TI-Medtech, an exhibitor at the show, shared: “We are India-based distributors and manufacturers and are highlighting our medical consumables such as sutures. Latin America and the US are important markets for us, and we have also recently applied for US FDA approval, which will take around three to five months to come through.

“We operate in some pockets in Latin America, and being at FIME will help us expand our horizons further in the region. The event is an important platform for an emerging company like us, as we can interact with prospective distributors, channel partners, and hospital representatives and create some traction to get our product in this country.”

Commitment to sustainability

The FIME team has elevated the sustainability efforts for this year's event. The show has incorporated several sustainability practices into its operations, from responsibly managing tradeshow waste to implementing reusable books and providing exhibitors with the option to opt for eco-conscious stands.

Taking centre stage at the event is Miami Dade Animal Services (MDAS), a local organisation committed to finding homes for over 650 pets. "We are profoundly grateful for the opportunity to bring some of these pets for adoption at this event," shared a representative from MDAS. "Not only does this help the shelter pets, but it also spreads awareness on the importance of vaccination and sterilisation for pets."

This year's event offers several new features on the show floor, including the Intelligent Health Pavilion and Transformation Zone. On behalf of the entire team, we would like to wish you a successful rest of the week.”
