"The main idea is to invite all the leaders in BioMed and BioTech in the world, both multinationals, researchers, universities and investors, to come to Granada to present their projects to the health informaticians and to the largest purchaser of health products and solutions in Spain, and one of the largest in Europe: Andalusia," says Medina.

"The Bio-South also exists".

María Medina considers that "beyond Madrid and Catalonia, which for years have been concentrating almost all the attention of the Bio world in Spain, research and innovation in Andalusia, in the South, also exists".

Medina Media Events' (MME) commitment to pioneering events in new technologies is not new. First it was the 4K Summit in 2015, then in 2017 the 5G Forum, this year it was the International Cybersecurity Radar (CSI Radar) and before that, in 2019, it was the Space and Underwater Tourism Summit (SUTUS) in Marbella. All of them have continued and will have new editions in 2024.

"Now, in 2024, MME is committed to BioMedicine and BioTechnology, with an international agenda and Artificial Intelligence as a special guest," says María Medina.

The BioMed & Tech Talks agenda will be hybrid, with two face-to-face and two virtual sessions. The face-to-face sessions will be held on Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 April, with the virtual presentations on Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 April. The reception for VIP guests and sponsors will be on Sunday 7 April, World Health Day, with a private agenda for Grenada, courtesy of local institutions.

4 thematic axes and a special guest: Artificial Intelligence

The agenda of the event will have four thematic axes: The first will be on Medicines, the second on Equipment, the third on Technology, Data and Artificial Intelligence, and the fourth, called "Miscellaneous", will cover a variety of other topics.

"MME events are "boutique events", aimed at a selected and select audience. Both for the sponsors, as well as for the experts and authorities. Access in person, for 250 people, is by invitation only," explains María Medina.

All the selected presentations, of which there will be around 40 in person and virtual ones, can be followed through "The Observatory", the digital platform of Medina Media Events, where all the speeches will be available 24/365 for on-demand consumption, like Netflix.
