You don’t need us to tell you how rapidly medical technology is changing these days, and if your company isn’t embracing these advances and staying up to speed on new developments, then it’s only going to be falling behind. That’s what makes events such as Medical Design & Manufacturing East so crucial when it comes to gaining a more comprehensive understanding of the latest innovations and advancements in the field. It’s a part of why MD&M East has been such a popular show among medical device engineers, research and development professionals, and executives throughout the territory. The show will return to New York City’s Jacob J. Javits Convention Center from June 12-14.
Advanced Manufacturing New York City. It’s happening this June. Here’s what you need to know about it and why you should seriously consider attending it (if you haven’t already made plans, that is).
As mentioned earlier, this is the top annual MedTech event on the East coast; a show where attendees can get a sneak peek at innovations and advances before they hit the market, and catch up on anything new they may have missed that’s already on the market. It’s attended by some 8,000 people in the field, and the technology on display includes everything from surgical robots to wearables. Attendees will also have the opportunity to connect with various industry suppliers in adhesives, biotechnology, electronics, raw materials and packaging products.
Some of the 700-plus companies signed up to attend include:
In addition to the packed trade show floor, MD&M East also offers more than 60 hours of education. Educational sessions include panel discussions, new trends, success story case studies and technical sessions. Smart manufacturing, packaging education, and general MedTech education are just a sample of what attendees can expect to learn more about in these sessions. Plus, there’s also a tech theater that will regularly showcase the latest innovations to hit the market. Education doesn’t just take place in a classroom setting, either. New this year are education hubs, which are located across the show floor, better-allowing attendees to pop in and out when relevant topics are discussed without having to walk off-site or far away from all of the action in the exhibit hall. There will even be a special 3D Printing Zone on the show floor, which will allow attendees to get a crash course in additive manufacturing.

A busy show floor featuring all of the who’s who in MedTech and hours of beneficial education aren’t all attendees can gain from attending MD&M. The networking opportunities also cannot be downplayed. Arguably just as important as what you know is who you know, and MD&M East permits attendees to build connections to help grow their business. All new this year is the attendee-to-exhibitor matchmaking feature, which helps attendees connect directly with suppliers based on their specific needs or challenges.
Registration is easy for qualified attendees – and best of all, it’s free. All you need to do is log on to the official show website and click on the “Register Now” button on the homepage.
