The Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau (GHCVB) announced a new initiative to create an annual medical expo and conference, Medical World Americas, that will raise the global profile of Houston as a medical hub, while generating new revenue for the city each year. Medical World Americas will bring together hospital administration and executives, procurement specialists, physicians, nurses, scientists, pharmacists, research technicians and educators from across the Americas to showcase knowledge and innovation in the medical field. It will offer an opportunity for new products in health care to be introduced in an expo format as well as a multi-track conference program. The event will be held for the first time April 28-30, 2014 at the George R. Brown Convention Center. Read this news in Spanish http://bit.ly/16I9hQE.
The GHCVB is partnering with Messe Dusseldorf, the German organization that produces in Germany the world’s largest medical tradeshow, MEDICA, and the Texas Medical Center. The event will be the first of its kind in this part of the world. Medical World Americas will also align with the strengths of the Texas Medical Center-cardiology, oncology, hospital disaster readiness, hospital occupational health and safety, infection control and medical devices and technology-to showcase knowledge and innovation in these specialized categories. The event is also supported by the Greater Houston Partnership, Houston First and the City of Houston.
