MPO Summit 2016, Austin, Texas October 5-6, 2016
Focusing on both U.S. and international medtech manufacturing hubs, Medical Product Outsourcing’s conference series has provided the medical device industry with the most comprehensive programs for more than 10 years. These highly informative symposiums address critical medical device outsourcing and manufacturing issues impacting multiple stakeholders within the industry. In 2016, MPO travels to Austin, Texas-home to a growing cluster of innovative life science companies. Graciously hosted by the Hilton in the heart of downtown Austin (just a two-block stroll to 6th Street), this year’s Summit will simultaneously highlight the appeal of the region for medtech while tackling a number of the most significant issues for today’s medical device companies.The Greater Austin area of Texas is home to more than 190 companies focused on life sciences, including 40 percent specifically specializing in medical device and diagnostics technologies. Companies such as St. Jude Medical, Smith & Nephew, Inova Labs, Hanger, ArthroCare, Integra Lifesciences, Apollo Endosurgery, and DJO Surgical are just a few of the medical device firms that employ the nearly 11,000 people in the life sciences space in the region. In addition, collaboration with leading universities such as the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin and the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine elevate the research and development happening in the space. Life science innovation facilities like the Texas Life-Sciences Collaboration Center further support efforts to bring new technology ideas to market for enhanced healthcare.Against the backdrop of such an impressive location, this interactive networking and educational event will partner local experts with out-of-state industry thought leaders-OEMs, contract manufacturers, suppliers, consultants, members of the investment community, and academia-for a unique forum to discuss critical industry topics and offer tools to compete and grow in today’s challenging business climate.
