The impressive US MedTech Conference agenda includes various networking sessions, receptions, plenary breakfast and lunch sessions, and educational programs including the CEOs Unplugged Series, panel sessions, and MedTech Meetups.

In 2017, MTPConnect led the largest international delegation at The Medtech Conference in San Jose. The Australian delegation took part in a tailored agenda of exclusive events including a tour of the Boston Scientific CRM manufacturing site, and presentations from the Medical Device Innovation Consortia, Hogan Lovells attorneys, Reimbursement Strategies LLC and Medical Alley on topics to learn from and assist in entering the US market.

This is an initiative of MTPConnect, a not-for-profit organisation which aims to accelerate the rate of growth of the medical technologies, biotechnologies and pharmaceuticals sector to achieve greater commercialisation and establish Australia as an Asia-Pacific hub for MTP companies. It was formed in November 2015 as part of the Federal Government’s $250 million Industry Growth Centres Initiative.
