Event description

Description

This Northern Powerhouse-led mission to San Jose & San Francisco represents an outstanding opportunity for UK companies to promote Medtech innovation capabilities in addition to facilitating trade and R&D collaborations with US partners.

The North of England has a history of world class technology and medical innovation. From the first beta-blocker to the world’s first cancer trials, we offer an exceptional track record of world-leading R&D fused with rapid commercialisation.

The four-day trip includes visits to San Jose and San Francisco which will coincide with the government’s GREAT campaign to promote the North’s exceptional offering and introduce delegates to the investment culture that makes Silicon Valley the tech capital of the world.

This is an opportunity for delegates from across the North to meet major partners including potential US GPO’s, hospital groups, distributors and insurers, VC’s, and to attract potential funding partners and target entry points into the North American market.

As part of the mission delegates will have the chance to attend the Advamed 2017 (Medtech) Conference at a discounted rate, participate in an exclusive BIOBRITS reception hosted by the British Consulate in San Francisco, and improve their understanding of the US Healthcare Technology market.

What can we offer?

- Preparation & sessions on doing business in USA prior to the visit.
