Welcome

The IMSTA Awards 2017 will take place on Thursday 28th September in Croke Park. These landmark awards are recognised as the premier awards for developers, providers and suppliers of effective healthcare solutions for the health system in Ireland.

ENTERPRISE IRELAND are delighted to be the lead sponsor of the IMSTA Awards 2017. The medical technology sector is a key element of the Irish economy, employing over 30,000 and accounting for roughly 10% of all exports from Ireland. Allied to it’s size and economic contribution, the sector also enhances our standing as a country that innovates at the forefront of science and technology. These Awards recognise the best of the work being undertaken here in that sector and by supporting them we support Irish job creation and the further enhancement of our national reputation.

The IMSTA Awards, now in their sixth year, have grown significantly in the past few years with entries coming from hospitals, researchers, medtech entrepreneurs and industry. Previous IMSTA Award winners come from acute hospital research teams, primary health care providers, SME start ups, community health care products, digital health entrepreneurs, global med tech companies, local distributors and many other extraordinary people and healthcare professionals.

We are pleased to announce that our GUEST SPEAKER for the evening will be none other than New Zealand-born rugby union coach, JOE SCHMIDT, who is Ireland head coach. Come along and hear Joe's story and anecdotes from his time with the Ireland Rugby team.

We look forward to welcoming you to Croke Park for another very special evening. The event commences with a drinks reception spnosored by DAVY at 7.00 p.m. The dress code is BLACK TIE.
