This year’s SAFHE (South African Federation of Hospital Engineers) and CEASA (Clinical Engineering Association of South Africa) Conference and Exhibition was held in Johannesburg, at the Sandton Convention Centre.

Under the banner of “Smart Hospital – Engineering and Design” the conference ran alongside the trade exhibition from 11th –13th August 2015, with more than 50 national and international exhibitors that marketed their products and services.

Having already established itself as the flagship event for individuals involved in provision of healthcare services and facilities in Southern Africa, the theme covered topics of interest by top speakers that included talks such as, Infection prevention and control - challenges and implications for healthcare facility planning and design, Procurement of medical equipment to suit the need and The challenges in terms of human resources to maintain hospitals, amongst others.

The 36m² Hutz Medical stand provided the perfect backdrop to meet existing customers and propose new business opportunities. The stand featured a variety of innovative products to captivate both new and old clients’ interest, included were Hutz Medical’s HUGO LED medical examination light, a new medical equipment pendant and the HU-MET: Medical Equipment Trolley.

Hutz received a number of enquiries, with the expo once again providing us with a good indication of the market’s needs and where we can improve in terms of our overall offering.
