"We maintain active relationships with global industry participants and capital providers, and are always looking to expand our network and our reach in order to provide the best opportunities for our clients.

The DxPx Conference is sponsored by a number of prestigious companies, such as: Aescuvest, Sonic Healthcare's Bioscientia, Hightech Gründerfund, MEDICA, Medicover, MyBioGate, Pillar Biosciences, Roche Diagnostics, SHS, and McDermott Will & Emery.
"Our partnership with Brown Gibbons Lang & Company reflects BGL's status as a top investment banking and financial advisory firm in the life sciences industry," said DxPx Founder Dr. Mirko Stange.

This year's DxPx Conference takes place on November 18, 2019 in Duesseldorf, Germany, at the Maritim Airport Hotel. The conference, because it is held in conjunction with the first day of the MEDICA conference, offers participants from Asia and North America, in addition to European countries, the chance to attend complimentary events during their visit to Duesseldorf. Over 350 participants from more than 15 countries are expected to participate this year.
In addition to prescheduled, one-on-one meetings, the Conference will feature panel discussions on topics such as reimbursement, cross-border M&A, and point-of-care diagnostics. The event will also facilitate startup pitches; interested entrepreneurs and companies should apply for the opportunity to present their ideas and products live on stage to an international audience. If selected, they can attend the conference for free, and compete for the chance to win DxPx awards, such as a fully-paid investor roadshow in China.
