Welcome to the 2016 MPO Summit
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, including St. Jude Medical, Smith & Nephew, Inova Labs, Hanger, ArthroCare, Integra Lifesciences, Apollo Endosurgery, and DJO Surgical. 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.
Actually, if you’re in medtech, then Austin, Texas will be the place to be during that first week of October 2016! Kicking off the week on Monday and Tuesday (prior to the MPO Summit event) is MedTechTX2016 “The Keys to Unlocking the Market” at the Radisson Downtown. Having a great medical technology isn’t enough. Healthcare is a complex and changing environment. The vital question—how do you get market acceptance when there are multiple stakeholders? Panels include clinical leaders, quality and patient safety leaders, c-suite executives, industry leaders and medical technology entrepreneurs. The format of this conference will be different from any event you have attended in the past. The topics and speakers were carefully selected to give you an “insider’s perspective” on developing champions among the many stakeholders involved in the medtech review process.
Following such an impressive event will be the MPO Summit on Wednesday and Thursday nearby at the Austin-Hilton. With an agenda that serves as a perfect complement to MedTechTX2016, 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.
The MPO Summit is presented in collaboration with:
