Innokas Medical participated in the Upgraded Life Festival event on May 19th that was arranged in Biomedicum at the Helsinki University Hospital campus. Upgraded Life Festival is the largest health- and wellbeing technology event in the Nordic Countries, and it is arranged by HealthSPA. The event was targeted to all people interested in health and wellbeing. Participants included physicians, academic students and people from various companies. There were 67 different companies exhibiting, and they included companies ranging from start-ups to global companies.
”A similar event that brings together people from the whole field of health and wellbeing has never been arranged. We wanted to bring together these people, and promote networking between people from health and wellbeing sectors”, tells Hanna Vartia from the main organizer HealthSPA.
In addition to exhibitors, the visitors were entertained by several interesting keynote speakers, whose presentations focused on the main themes of the event: innovations in public health care, future of patient diagnostics and treatment, industrial internet and biohacking, big data in the field of health and wellbeing, and wearables. Networking was naturally the underlying theme at the event.
Innokas Medical participated at the festival as exhibitor. Innokas presented our medical device design and manufacturing services, and built relationships with other companies participating at the event. Innokas Medical´s Marketing Coordinator Elina Ihme felt that the participation was successful.
”Upgraded Life Festival was very professionally arranged, and offered a wide variety of relevant content. The keynote speeches were very interesting, mostly because the presentations were in some way resonating with Innokas core competences. We were also able to create surprisingly many new contacts with different companies, and these discussions have continued after the festival. Our investment into Upgraded Life Festival was very rewarding”, summarizes Ihme.
