VICTORIA, B.C., April 6, 2016— Medical Device Commercialization Playbook 2016 delivered two times the audience and events and featured four times the content and speakers of the inaugural event in 2015. Aimed at small and medium sized enterprises in the medical device sector, Medical Device Playbook events bring regional communities together with experts and entrepreneurs with multiple launch successes.
Produced by StarFish Medical and co-presented with LifeSciences BC in Vancouver, Medical Device Playbook 2016 drew 400+ attendees in Toronto ON and Vancouver BC to day long events on March 14 and 31 respectively.
“It is the only ‘conference’ of its type in Canada. I really enjoyed that it was all about the business and commercialization aspects of the health-tech industry and not heavily based on technology,” noted one participant.
Twenty-four industry veterans from start-ups, regulatory, venture capital and industry giant, Medtronic gave their time and insights to speak individually and in panels covering subjects including:
Scaling through acquisitions and being acquired
Macro Trends and Issues
