The GripAble team heads to Texas with the ABHI

GripAble is excited to be among the delegation of pioneering HealthTech companies heading to Texas as part of the first major US trade mission organised by the Association of British HealthTech Industries (ABHI) since the COVID-19 pandemic.

The visit marks the launch of a series of ABHI-led trade missions across the US as part of its flagship US Accelerator programme.

GripAble joins 28 of the UK’s leading HealthTech innovators heading stateside to strengthen trading relationships. The week-long missions – exclusive to members of the ABHI US Accelerator – aim to provide participants with access to senior leaders, clinicians and procurement teams from world-class hospital systems across the country, supporting them in engaging the right stakeholders and gaining valuable market insight.

Taking place from 27 March to 1 April, the Texas visit will provide a prime opportunity to forge more personal and lasting ties with the network of leaders and hospital systems ABHI has cultivated in Texas over the years and aims to generate further demand for UK-developed products.

Throughout the week, our team will be taking part in a series of meetings, networking events and introductions across Austin, Fort Worth, Dallas, and Houston – four of the biggest cities in Texas.

Danielle Richards, GripAble Commercial Manager, said:

“We are delighted to be among the UK HealthTech pioneers joining the ABHI trade mission to Texas. This is perfect timing for us as we launch GripAble Pro into the US market and we look forward to meeting clinical leaders face-to-face strengthening relationships with key stakeholders in the US. In addition to taking part in the ABHI mission, GripAble is also exhibiting at AOTA Inspire (31 March to 3 April) in San Antonio, providing a further chance for us to connect with clinicians and therapists.”

Paul Benton, Managing Director, International, ABHI commented:

“With regional headquarters of some of the country’s largest healthcare providers located in the State, Texas provides tangible opportunities to UK companies and acts as the perfect springboard for them to access the wider United States. Our mission targets senior leaders across many of the main hospital systems in the State and offers unprecedented access to key decision makers and leaders. We are keen to be heading back to Texas following a brief hiatus, and we look forward to supporting our companies in exploring collaborative opportunities in the US and strengthening their partnerships.”
