Call for Entries: MD&M West 2017 Innovation Prize

UBM is looking to identify the most innovative exhibitors at MD&M West and give them the recognition they deserve. The MD&M West Innovation Prize is a contest acknowledging the most innovative products, services, and technologies developed in recent years by exhibitors at the conference and expo, held February 7-9, 2017, in Anaheim, CA.

Finalists in the contest will be honored at the show as well as on UBM's industry-leading Qmed media brand. Finalists will also be included in an Innovation Prize tour at MD&M West that will attract attendees to check out their technologies at the event.

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

To enter, please complete the form below by 5 p.m. Pacific time on Friday, January 13, 2016.

Winning the MD&M West Innovation Prize pays benefits going forward: The company named the most innovative in the contest will receive a 22-inch-by-28-inch sign to display at MD&M West and future shows.

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:

  • The editorial team will ask our online audience to help select five finalists among the submissions, which will be highlighted during an Innovation Prize Tour at MD&M West.

  • 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

The official rules are explained in detail on this page, although here is a summary. Interested companies must:
