Advamed’s MedTech Conference & Mission

24 September 2018 - 28 September 2018

ABHI is leading a HealthTech mission to Philadelphia from 24–28 September 2018 and enjoys the support of UK government.

Grant funding of £2,000 is available, subject to eligibility, to offset your visit costs when you join the ABHI-led group.

The mission will commence at Advamed’s The MedTech Conference, a global gathering of medical device, diagnostic and digital health executives, from some of the world’s leading MedTech firms. With over 2,700 participants from 30 countries – including high-level government officials, regulators, industry executives, VCs, bankers, media and other MedTech stakeholders – this is an opportunity to take part in three days of educational programmes, workshops and business development sessions, plus investor and business networking.

As a member of our group you will enjoy a special registration discount if you register early.

Following the Conference, ABHI will lead the group on a two-day tour of hospital systems in the Philadelphia area giving you an opportunity to meet senior clinical and leadership teams.  This bespoke week-long programme presents the ideal opportunity for UK companies looking to enhance growth and return on investment, or discuss strategic partnerships and JV’s in the USA.

If you are already thinking of attending the event, joining the UK group is a great way to add value to your visit.
