UK healthcare companies invited to take part in ABHI US trade mission

UK healthcare companies are being invited to take part in a number of activities across America in a scheme designed to help them access the US market.

The Association of British Healthtech Industries (ABHI) will be venturing across the US in the coming months and is looking for UK companies to join it.

The trade association has a strong network of relationships across Texas and is now looking to develop new connections with healthcare systems in the East and West Coasts of America.

The visits are suitable for any companies looking to do business in the US and have been designed to enhance growth and help gain a return on US investment.

The ABHI’s first visit will take place during 24-28 September to the AdvaMed MedTech Conference, as well as a two-day tour of hospital systems in Philadelphia.

UK companies will have the chance  to meet senior clinical and leadership teams. Those attending will join a group of senior healthcare organisations, including the AHSN’s and Medcity, plus companies like Health Enterprise East, SurgEase Innovations and Medovate.

From 13-19 October, ABHI will visit ASA’s leading event Anesthesiology 2018, followed by a tailored meeting programme during which companies will be introduced to major hospital systems and healthcare organisations around the San Francisco area.

The ABHI will then have its seventh mission to Texas from 26-30 November, where it will once again visit major hospital systems in Houston, Dallas and Austin. Companies will meet clinical leaders across the healthcare system, including accelerators, business chambers, professional service companies and the Dell Medical School, which incorporates ABHI’s own Innovation Hub.

Grant funding of £2,000 is available for both the September and October missions, subject to eligibility, to help offset visit costs. For more information or to register for any of the events please contact International Associate Director, David Phillips
