The BioMEDevice conference came to the East Coast for the first time this year, bringing companies from across the medical device industry to a two-day conference and business development forum in Boston.
It’s a chance to showcase the density of the medical industry in New England. Conference organizer Canon Communications boasts that “every medical specialty” is represented by the roughly 265 exhibitors on hand at Boston’s cavernous Convention & Exhibition Center.
Josh Dome, director of sales for Canon’s events arm, tells MassDevice that about 3,000 people are attending the event, roughly the same number that went to two prior conferences in San Jose, Calif.
“The regional events typically perform well and I think weíve been getting a warm reception,” Canon’s Nannette Nolan tells us.
And it doesn’t stop with medical devices. The conference includes “Design and Manufacturing New England” and “Electronics New England” events were organized concurrently to capitalize on industry overlap. They include 67 and 68 exhibitors, respectively.
