Welcome note

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to The International Congress on Market Access & Regulatory Affairs in Medical Devices (MARA2016), which will take place 25-26 May 2016, in Dusseldorf, Germany.

In order for medical device companies to create a powerful market strategy for regions not previously served, the challenge is to invest more shrewdly and to stay ahead of competition. The global economies are diverse and competitive and there is a need to establish a strategic approach to understand the variances and concentrate valuable resources on the most promising markets. The strategic approach to enter new markets will depend on local characteristics, regulations and the company’s aspirations and ability to establish a position.

The congress will provide an insight in gaining substantial market coverage in a cost-effective way, taking into account the local characteristics, regulatory demands and requirements.

Participants of the congress will also have the opportunity to schedule personal One on One meetings with the faculty and gain first-hand knowledge from key opinion leaders.

We wish you a fruitful and enjoyable congress and look forward to welcoming you to Dusseldorf.


Yours faithfully,

Scientific Program Chairs
