Michigan Medical Device Summit - Breakout 3
Going Global: Accessing and Managing Foreign Markets
The global medical devices marketplace offers tremendous business growth prospects for U.S. manufacturers, as well as significant obstacles. On the flip side, foreign companies can be essential suppliers and/or distributors, with whom relationships can be fraught with some risk. So how best to maneuver uneven international economic dynamics, continually changing regulatory systems, and fickle national interests? Operationally, where can one get help for foreign country market access, setting up distribution or supplier channels or better understanding the regional device marketplace?

Advancing Healthcare and Improving Lives Through Medical Technology
The Michigan Medical Device Summit is a gathering of thought leaders, innovators, providers, and change-makers to discuss critical issues facing the state’s medical technology sector. The medical device industry was upended as the Covid pandemic raged, resulting in expansions, pivots, and recalibration – but business went on, it had to for most. The Summit will provide strategic insights on the latest in medical device innovation and manufacturing, regulation and compliance, supply chains, market access, and more. OEMs, contract suppliers and providers, academics and other professionals involved in Michigan’s medtech sector can garner new knowledge, tactics and best practices, while making valuable connections in this interactive event.
