Healthtech Week 2018


11th - 15th June 2018 | Auckland

Medical technology offers a growing range of healthcare solutions that are critically important to every New Zealander. We invite all stakeholders of the sector to come together for HealthTech Week 2018 to discuss issues of strategic-concern and identify new target-areas for innovation, investment and growth.

New Zealand’s healthcare sector benefits greatly from the growing number of people who work across the broad range of Medical Technologies. Ultimately, all these stakeholders are focused upon providing solution-enabling technologies that offer healthier-lives for more New Zealanders and will also generate opportunities for economic growth through new exports.

HealthTech Week 2018 will host a series of events that will appeal to the many groups who are involved in this dynamic sector. All the events will reflect a passion to deliver a future that is accessible, affordable, sustainable and strives for clinical excellence.
