Supplier Days MedTech Ireland

29 September 2017

Austrian MedTech Suppliers visit Galway, Ireland.

Five Austrian MedTech suppliers took part in an exciting programme that brought them to Galway as part of the 'Supplier Days MedTech Ireland 2017' trade mission.

In co-operation with Styria, ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA Ireland organised a visit to Zimmer Biomet (producer of orthopaedic implants) where the delegation got to see an example of the modern production facilities available in Ireland.

Meetings at BioInnovate Ireland (Center for MedTech innovation) and Cúram (Center for Research in Medical Devices) gave the participants further insight in to the workings of MedTech in Ireland/Galway and how innovation is fostered.

Dinner with stakeholders from the cluster was an excellent opportunity to network and get feedback on market penetration strategies.

For the last two days of the visit, an ‘Austria’ booth was arranged for the last two days of the visit at the Medical Technology Ireland conference and trade fair at the Galway Racecourse. This was an excellent event with 150 exhibitors and many B2B meetings were arranged.  There were also over one thousand delegates at the event including from the large multinationals active in the area.

The delegation was given considerable focus at the conference opening with mentions from both Maurice O’Gorman (President of Galway Chamber) and Simon Coveney (Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade).
