Event description

Description

Get inspired by the creative crowd at SXSW in Austin AND explore business opportunities in one of the most important healthcare hubs in the USA!

SXSW is fun, SXSW is inspiration and SXSW is THE place to be in March! SXSWeek® spans 10 days and nights from March 9 –18 in 2018. It includes several festivals, e.g. SXSW Interactive, the SXSW Gaming Conference as well as a Music and Film Festival. In 2017, direct participation in SXSWeek totaled approximately 421,900! With more than 100 talks on Healthcare alone, SXSW is also an important source of inspiration for the worldwide healthcare community. However, the sheer size of the event as well as the intense program makes it hard to focus and talk business. And: some of your most important business partners or the most exicting startups might be in front of you - but film, music and the party might make it hard to see them!

Explore Austin AND Houston!

While SXSW draws many innovators into town for a short period of time, Austin and neighboring Houston are worth a trip for any healthcare expert. They are two of the most important healthcare markets of the US with leading universities, research facilities, corporations as well as private and public hospitals. Over 200 life science companies in the region, and a workforce of nearly 12,300 are focused on the highest growth segments and research areas in the industry, including the specialties of biologics, medical devices, diagnostics, pharmaceutical, contract research, and others. More than 3,700 companies with 93,800 workers make the State of Texas one of the leading biotech states in the country!
