The annual conference of the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) has been renamed The MedTech Conference.
Scott Whitaker, president and CEO of AdvaMed said: “Our new name reinforces our annual conference’s role as the global summit for medical technology industry leaders. The MedTech Conference will still be powered by AdvaMed, but we are open to the entire medtech community beyond our membership, and we will continue to draw the trailblazers in our industry from around the world.”
The conference, which is the premiere gathering of medtech officials in North America, will be held at the San Jose McEnery Convention Centre from 25-27 September. The MedTech Conference will bring together over 1,000 companies to collaborate in business development, capital formation, innovative technology showcasing, education opportunities and networking.
Visitors can look forward to the CEOs Unplugged sessions, a MedTech Innovator Showcase featuring early-stage company presentations, over 35 educational panel sessions, networking receptions, online partnering via MedTech Connect, a heavily-trafficked exhibit hall, and more.
Dow R. Wilson, 2017 chairman, The MedTech Conference, and president and chief executive officer, Varian Medical Systems said: “By holding this year’s conference in the heart of Silicon Valley, we have a unique opportunity to bring together technology leaders, FDA officials, emerging growth companies and investors to discuss the challenges facing the medical industry and identify new ways to solve them. I look forward to seeing everyone in San Jose.”
