Who should join this mission?

The target group for this mission are Flemish companies active in the Medtech chain that are seriously considering to expand internationally or that want to connect with the US ecosystem. Participants of this mission will have full access to the conference, the exhibition and the Medtech Connect one-on-one partnering program. The delegation will be represented on the FIT booth. 

As concerning to the costs

If you want to participate, you’ll have to count on the following costs: participation to the conference (in 2017: $ 995, for companies with sales less than $ 100 million at early bird rate); your transport and hotel, and a participation in the mission costs.
