This year’s DxPx Conference takes place on November 18, 2019 in Duesseldorf, Germany, at the Maritim Airport Hotel. The conference, because it is held in conjunction with the first day of the MEDICA conference, offers participants from Asia and North America, in addition to European countries, the chance to attend complimentary events during their visit to Duesseldorf. Over 350 participants from more than 15 countries are expected to participate this year.
In addition to prescheduled, one-on-one meetings, the Conference will feature panel discussions on topics such as reimbursement, cross-border M&A, and point-of-care diagnostics. The event will also facilitate startup pitches; interested entrepreneurs and companies should apply for the opportunity to present their ideas and products live on stage to an international audience. If selected, they can attend the conference for free, and compete for the chance to win DxPx awards, such as a fully-paid investor roadshow in China. Application is free of charge; applicants need only submit a one-page business plan via www.dxpx-conference.com. The Conference’s sponsors and select industry experts will act as the awards jury.
