I attended the Med Tech World / MDM – Medical Device Conference hosted at the Minneapolis convention center.
This was an amazing international event in terms of size, topics, and representation of the global medical device and healthcare community. The multi-day event featured multiple tracks of speakers and focus areas. Large vendor pavilions showcase the latest innovations in devices, hospital systems, and lab equipment. There was also training courses offered to attendees in a wide range of topics. While the event was thriving with conversation, a common theme I found among attendees was the challenge in networking effectively. While serendipity of being co-located for the event certainly creates great opportunity for pro-active outreach, it was clear that a bit more orchestration and facilitation in the event planning would be a game changing multiplier. Given attendees come form around the world, the most important aspect is who they are connected to after they return home.
