Atlanta Tech Park to Host Cyber-MedTech Conference in April 2020

By December 4, 2019 December 9th, 2019 Events, Latest News, The Park

Building off the success of the ATL Cyber-Fin Global Innovation Challenge, which covered the intersection of the Cyber and FinTech industries, Atlanta Tech Park is excited to host another conference focusing on the MedTech industry.

The ATL Cyber-MedTech Global Innovation Conference & Challenge (http://bit.ly/ATLCYBERMED20) will take place April 27-29, 2020, at Atlanta Tech Park in Peachtree Corners.

The United States is home to the largest medical device industry in the world, accounting for 40 percent of the global market share in 2017, according to SelectUSA, a subsidiary of the International Trade Administration. Atlanta itself is the fastest-growing life sciences market with pharmaceutical sales expected to grow to $1.2 trillion by 2024.

The Park has been home to two MedTech companies. One of them, ControlRad, recently conducted a clinical use of its radiation reduction technology for fluoroscopically guided procedures (FGP) after receiving FDA clearance in May 2019. Then, in October, ControlRad secured $15 million in Series B financing from Questa Capital.

The second company, AffirmHealth, was one of The Park’s very first members. Its main focus is to ensure healthcare leaders adopt responsible, compliant prescribing practices for patients via technology.

Atlanta Tech Park has assembled a top-notch steering committee to guide the planning and execution of the Cyber-MedTech Conference & Challenge. Steering committee members include: Fred Mindermann of Sertainty, David McCampbell of Sertainty, Benn Konsynski from Emory, Rebecca Rutherfoord from Kennesaw State University, John C. Yates, Andrew Morris from the FinTech Agenda, Cristy McAdams, Saraya from the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, Ben Dyer, Hossain Shahriar from Kennesaw State University, Ejane Caraway from Georgia Department of Economic Development, Christine Chen from Cox, and DeWayne Addington from Sertainty.
