Larta Recommends: AdvaMed & OCTANe

The healthcare industry has made phenomenal strides over the past two years, especially in regard to medical technology, a sector estimated to be worth $336.2 billion worldwide. In our rapidly evolving world, it can be difficult to stay abreast of the dynamic innovations surrounding us, from the development of new devices, methods and technology-aided processes, breakthrough developments are being made to bring medicine into the next century. But what other important things are happening in the medical technology space? As thought leaders on the Global Innovation Economy, we would like to share two premiere Medical Technology events happening later this year in California.


AdvaMed is the leading MedTech Conference in North America, bringing more than 1,000 companies together in a uniquely multifaceted environment for business development, capital formation, innovative technology showcasing, world-class educational opportunities and networking. An event rich in international flavor and featuring a deep, diverse attendee list that includes influential policy-makers, business executives and media, AdvaMed 2015 seeks to advance industry discussion from key perspectives through detailed panel sessions, executive forums and more. It is a “must-attend” event for any MedTech company. Whatever your goals may be, you are sure to accomplish, and even surpass them, at AdvaMed 2015.


OCTANe's signature MDIF conference will be held at the Hotel Irvine on November 2-3rd, 2015. OCTANe connects people and ideas with the capital and resources required to fuel technology industry growth and catalyze innovation and commercialization in the Orange County region.

“The MDIF has quickly emerged as an important stage for CEO’s and investors in the region’s medical device space. High quality content and attendees create a rich environment for education, networking, and business development.” – Michael Mussallem, CEO Edwards Lifesciences

The focus of this year’s meeting is understanding and adapting to the rapidly evolving Life Sciences industry. The meeting will provide a comprehensive overview of all of the fundamental business and regulatory issues associated with the life science business economy.

Here are some of the program highlights this year:

  • Detailed review and action planning on the factors most significantly impacting the healthcare industry.
