Think You Have the Coolest Technology at MD&M East? Prove It.

MDME15_WEB_top_banner_0.pngUBM Canon is looking to identify the most innovative exhibitors at MD&M East and give them the attention they deserve. The Supplier Innovation Challenge is a contest that will acknowledge the most innovative products, services, and technologies developed in recent years by exhibitors at MD&M East, held June 9-11 in New York City.

Finalists in the contest will be honored at the show as well as on UBM Canon's industry-leading Qmed and MD+DI websites and newsletters. Finalists will also get included in a Supplier Innovation tour at MD&M East that will drive more people to check out their technology at the event.

The winner will also be announced during the show and will be promoted in editorial coverage as well.

Winning the Supplier Innovation Challenge pays benefits going forward: The company named the most innovative in the contest will receive a 22 × 28 inch Mega Sign at a future MD&M show that will highlight the fact that the company is a 2015 Innovation Winner at MD&M East.

UBM Canon invites MD&M East exhibitors--with operations in the U.S. and Canada--to participate in the Supplier Innovation Challenge, a contest that will acknowledge the most innovative products, services, and technologies developed in recent years by exhibitors.

This is a chance to showcase the best your company has to offer in the design and manufacturing of medical devices, and get public recognition for it.

Here are the steps in the contest:

  • UBM Canon's editorial team will review each submission and designate 10 entrants as semi-finalists.

  • The editorial team will then ask our online audience to help select five finalists, which will be highlighted during an Innovation Tour at MD&M East.

  • During the tour, a group of attendees will stop by the booth at a designated time to learn more about your firm's technology. After the tour is completed, the attendees will cast votes for the technology they think is the most innovative. In the event of a tie, our editorial team will help select a winner.

Eligibility and Requirements for Participation

  • Be a 2015 MD&M East exhibitor.

  • Have company operations in the United States or Canada.

  • Showcase an innovation developed between 2013 and the present relevant to the medical device industry.

  • Answer the required questions at the link provided in no more than 100 words each. Make sure to adequately state your case as to why your product, service, or technology is truly innovative, and to include an image (ideally less than 1 MB in size).

  • Finalists should be willing to have their technology featured in a Innovation Tour at MD&M East, where a group of attendees stops by the booth to learn more about the relevant technology.
