 For the 5 th time and the 3 rd consecutive year, UBIFRANCE, the French Trade Commission) organized the IT Healthcare Trade Mission in Sydney & Singapore from the 16th to 20 th of September 2013. For this trade mission, 7 companies relied upon UBIFRANCE’s teams with the aim to connect and meet with partners and potential customers locally. Covering various field such as engineering, medical imaging or e-health, the French companies had the opportunity to meet distributors, integrators, hospitals as well as health funds, international companies, consulting companies and medical practices. Beside individual B2B meetings, UBIFRANCE organized, in partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers, a morning business seminar where the French companies were introduced to the Australian healthcare market essentials and specifics by NSW Health, MTAA, PwC and UBIFRANCE senior executives. To complete their journey “down under”, French companies enjoyed a networking cocktail at NICTA’ headquarters and met with more than 50 attendees from the Australian healthcare industry and the French-Australian business community. Furthermore, during their Singapore leg, the SMEs had the chance to present their products and solutions in front of more than 70 healthcare professionals followed by a complete day of meetings and networking. During these presentation topics such as the scientific collaborations with France’s CNRS, professional training (Healthcare Management Institute with ESSEC) has been naturally tackled. Ultimately the delegation had the chance to visit the Tan Tock Seng Hospital, always seeking to integrate the latest innovative solutions.  

IT Healthcare 2012: 9 French companies make the most of their business trip to Singapore and Australia

The French Trade Commissions of Singapore and Sydney coordinated the IT Healthcare 2012 project from the 26th to the 30th of March. It enabled 9 French companies to grasp the local e-health industries and to find out whether their solutions have a real potential on these markets. The delegates were representatives from French cutting-edge players providing new IT solutions for the Health industry. They indeed provide innovative technologies, from ERP to remote telemedicine solutions, to glass-free 3D displays that give you a new perspective on X-rays!   Taking advantage of a two-fold trip in the Asia-Pacific region, a 5-day program has been organized for these French companies: they have first been given industry briefings by the key players of the local e-health industry, and then participated to individual business meetings which have been organized beforehand, according to their strategy on these markets.   These match-making meetings gave the delegates the opportunity to meet public and private buyers (hospitals and clinics) and potential partners (system integrators, telecommunications operators, health insurers, OEMs, etc.). In total, more than 100 meetings have been arranged by both Trade Commissions.   The project has proved to be a real success: the sessions provided the French companies with a fairly deep understanding of the e-health industry, and the B2B meetings enabled them to spot the opportunities and to initiate business relations. From the local companies’ point of view, the Singaporean and Australian organizations have been shown the newest French innovations and offered the opportunity to be among the first ones to do business with them.   You missed the occasion to meet our delegates? No worries, contact us and we will answer your questions and put you in touch with them!
