EY joins MedTech West Summit as official partner

MedTech West Summit has welcomed financial services provider EY as an official partner to its inaugural conference, which takes place at The Galmont Hotel, Galway, this May 7th.

EY is a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services and its Global Life Sciences sector brings together a worldwide network of 11,000 sector-focused professionals to anticipate trends, identify their implications and help clients create competitive advantage.

EY helps companies across the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical technology fields to form alliances, allocate resources and build trust with customers both in Ireland and internationally. Its annual medical technology report, Pulse of the Industry, documents key trends in the medtech sector and considers their implications.

The organisation has global revenues of $36.4bn with 284,000+ people employed across their 700 offices in more than 150 countries.

Announcing EY as an official partner, MedTech West founder Stuart Dempsey said: “EY has proven expertise in the medical technology, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, helping clients to navigate their way forward and achieve sustainable success in our health-outcomes-driven ecosystem. We’re delighted to welcome EY on board for MedTech West Summit and feel certain the conference will benefit enormously from this partnership.”

Commenting on EY’s sponsorship, Paraic Waters, Head of Tax in EY Galway, said: “We are really pleased to partner with the MedTech West Summit this year. EY has many clients in the medtech industry, especially in the west of Ireland, and our people have a thorough understanding of the strategic requirements, goals and challenges of the sector. More than 60% of Ireland’s medtech and life sciences organisations are based in Galway, which is a great endorsement of the talent, business infrastructure and quality of life on offer here.”

Leading law firm Arthur Cox has also been confirmed as an official partner to the conference, with further partnerships to be announced over the coming weeks.

MedTech West Summit takes place at The Galmont Hotel & Spa, Galway, on May 7th, 2020.
