AUTOMA+ DELEGATES IMPRESSIONS

Michael Gartner

Digital Health Solutions Executive DACH

Abbott

The interaction with different points of use, different people and solutions, helped a lot to keep open minded and to establish a new business model for Abbott itself.

Frank Sommerer

Program Lead Data Quality by Design

Boehringer Ingelheim International GmbH

It was very interesting to see these very experienced colleagues here, having the same problems and seeing the different ways how to solve topics. And I think combining this for the future will bring benefits.

Christina Kotsi

Global Oncology Digital Lead

Bayer plc

I loved that at AUTOMA+ there were a lot of presentations of how digital transformation is being led in different hospitals across the globe. I think there was a great balance between presentations from hospitals but also from the industry and I was really inspired by presentations and use cases across the healthcare sector.

Marketa Gladysev

Market Development Consultant

EUSPA (EU Agency for the Space Programme)

It is a nice closed environment and we have many chances to talk with the companies we want. We liked the content, but also we liked the personal approach — that we have a manager here really helping us to make connections.

Fausto Artico

Global R&D Tech Head and Director of Innovation and Data Science

GSK

I am impressed with the quality of people, I am connected with many of them. Only within the first day I spoke with more than 10 companies and with some of them I can already see potential for partnerships.

Mark Milton-Edwards

Head of Health Solutions

Teva Pharmaceuticals

The diversity at this congress is the thing that really stands out. The diversity in the audience and therefore the subject areas, dedicated to digital health but in its different manifestations.
