Is DTx East For You?

DTx East has been constructed by the pioneers of the industry to serve as the dedicated meeting point for those pushing the boundaries, as well as those seeking to understand the fundamentals of the field.

As this industry grows at a giddy pace, the need for key people to meet has never been greater.  The DTx West event took place in February where  120 decision – makers gathered for two days of learning, discovery and collaboration.

The East Coast event builds on the success of the West Coast meeting, moving the conversation forward and facilitating the connections and conversations we all need to have.

As an attendee you will have access to the latest information, often not published elsewhere.  The presentations, panels, workshops and networking discussions are transparent and frank.  (Our members tell us this series is the most open they have ever attended).

Hosted at a hand-picked venue, this exclusive event provides the perfect environment for networking.   If you work in the DTx sector then this is the must-attend event in the calendar.

Take a look at the agenda and speaker faculty and you will see what you will learn and why the leaders in this sector are coming together at this meeting.
