Their insights, opinions, coverage of emerging technologies and companies globally, and excellent conferences are a crucial part of today’s medtech landscape … the conferences are well put together and are must-attend events,” says Hunt Henrie, Managing Director, Global Head of Medtech at global life sciences transaction firm Locust Walk, and registered Innovation Summit San Francisco 2019 attendee.
