Celebrating our exporters: Micro X

The countdown is on with only three weeks until the inaugural Business SA International Trade & Export Conference and the 2018 Export Awards Gala Dinner on 4 October. This week in Business SA Today we celebrate South Australian export success story, Micro-X.

Micro-X moved to South Australia in 2015, establishing a site at the Tonsley Innovation District.  

Knowing radiology staff in hospitals suffered a high number of injuries caused by heavy lifting and moving patients to create X-ray images, Micro-X saw the opportunity to design an ultra-lightweight and moveable X-ray cart. 

Micro-X used innovative Carbon Nano Tube technology to create a lightweight, mobile device which could be easily moved around hospitals and for bedside use. 

Micro-X was recognised for its exporting excellence at last year’s Export Awards with a Product Design Award. This year there are two design gongs up for grabs - for product and service design, and design strategy.

You can be part of the action when the South Australian winners are announced at the Business SA 2018 Export Awards on 4 October at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Tickets are now available for the Export Awards Gala Dinner and ITEC, which will feature major speakers including Michael Heath, Deputy Chief of Mission at the US Embassy; and Maggie Zhou, Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand at the Alibaba Group.

Other impressive and thought-leading speakers include Australia’s first intellectual property adviser to China, David Bennett, China-educated strategist Leonie McKeon and the founder of SWEAT, Tobi Pearce.

Business SA will be hosting the conference for the first time, recognising the need to boost South Australia’s exporting potential, encouraging two-way trade between our largest international partners and providing invaluable advice to businesses on how to better promote their products and services to the global market.

If you’re in the export industry, you won’t want to miss these learning opportunities and important business and trade events.
