SAN DIEGO, September 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
IVD Technology Magazine is pleased to announce the second-annual IVD Business Strategy Conference, to be held November 6-8, 2013 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel. This is the only conference in North America that truly takes a full-scope view of the business, regulatory, and technology advancements that are essential to generating revenue in this niche market.
The comprehensive two-day program promises to serve as an ideal setting for major players, entrepreneurs, industry experts and new entrants to network face-to-face and discuss timely and effective practical business strategies to achieve successful commercialization for IVD products. "The $43-billon in vitro diagnostics industry has always been a complicated sector, and it is getting more so every year," states Norbert Sparrow, Editor in Chief, IVD Technology and conference chairperson. "Faced with the uncertainty of rapidly evolving national and international regulatory and reimbursement requirements to paradigm-shifting partnerships, the industry is looking for answers."
The IVD Business Strategy Conference Agenda includes presentations on:
- Regulatory landscape
- Cross-industry partnerships to develop innovative IVD products
- Strategies for exploiting new revenue streams in global markets
- Commercialization and sustaining long-term growth
- Latest developments in IVD technology
- A Special Panel on the future direction of the IVD industry
- And a half-day supplemental workshop on reimbursement strategies facilitated by Emerson Consulting
Opening the regulatory presentations is Julio Reategui, who is responsible for International Regulatory Affairs at the Roche Group's Ventana Medical Systems. Reategui will speak about the challenges and opportunities of emerging markets. His co-presenter Chang-Hong Whitney, President of Whitney Consulting, will focus on China, which many industry analysts predict will surpass the United States to become the world's largest IVD market within the next 10 to 15 years.
Plus, presentations on the latest models of collaboration will be delivered by top speakers from bioMérieux, Inc., Eli Lilly and Company, Novartis, Sony DADC US Inc. and Quanterix Corporation.
