BIOMEDevice Silicon Valley has wrapped up its two-day exhibition and educational event held in person December 8-9 and is now hosting an online experience for four weeks. The Smart Event platform provides online conference sessions and allows pre-registered attendees to continue conversations with industry-leading exhibitors.
More than 1000 C-suite executives, R&D engineers, and industry professionals attended the in-person event, including professionals from Galen Robotics, Google, Google Health, Intel, Intuitive Surgical, Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, Neptune Medical, Oracle, Penumbra, Philips, Siemens Healthineers, Sonora, and Stryker.
"The level of purchasing power in attendance at BIOMEDevice this year underscores the critical role trade shows play in the health and continued advancement of the medtech sector," said Adrienne Zepeda, Group Event Director, BIOMEDevice Silicon Valley. "Even amidst one of the most trying years in recent history, we are proud to share that this year's event delivered the highest quality attendee makeup to date, with 11% of attendees holding an R&D engineer title and a whopping 25% holding an executive-level title. While attendance was down comparably to previous years, the industry's most sought-after companies sent their decision-makers with the intent to ink deals."
Zepeda continued: "What sets this event apart is its new Smart Event structure that serves as a virtual wrap-around to the live event, providing buyers and suppliers an additional four weeks to hold follow-up conversations with potential new business partners discovered onsite."
The expo hall hosted nearly 200 exhibitors, all of which are accessible on the event's digital platform during the Smart Event, including Accumold, Cirtec Medical, Heraeus Medical Components, Medbio, Nelson Labs, Oliver Healthcare Packaging, Qosina, Sager Electronics, Velentium, and Zeus Industrial Products.
The world-class education presented at the annual event and made available on the Smart Event platform supports the maturation of advanced technologies that play an increasingly central role in treating and managing disease. The digital therapeutics market, for example, is expected to grow from $6 to $9 billion by 2025, equating to an impressive compound annual growth rate of 23.4%. "Many applications within the medtech field are experiencing explosive growth, thus elevating the need for peer-to-peer education to collectively bring new solutions to market and fast-track widespread adoption," remarked Zepeda.
Influential tech leader and keynote panelist Patrick Bangert, VP of AI at Samsung SDSA, commented: “BIOMEDevice Silicon Valley was an excellent conference and trade show at which I met several new future collaborators and some old friends. Our panel discussion had a great audience who asked insightful questions. I’ll be back!”
