Boston-based AdvaMed 2012 is off to a strong start

According to the organizers of the upcoming AdvaMed 2012 conference, the event  is off to a strong start. For the first time since its inception in 2007, the medtech conference will be held outside of Washington, D.C. The group opted for the medical manufacturing hub of Boston, Mass. on October 1-3.


The call for company presentations will open today. Last year, more than 60 companies gave presentations. In 2012, the topics that will be covered include blood, cardiovascular, dental, diagnostics, imaging, IVD, health information technology, metabolic disease/obesity, neurology, ophthalmology, orthopedics/spine, technology transfer offices, and wound healing and tissue regeneration.


Among the current 27 sponsors of the event are Abbott, Covidien, Ernst & Young, and Kaplan EduNeering. In addition, more than 22 supporting partner organizations have signed up to take on a supporting role. Based on last year’s attendance of about 1,900 medical device and diagnostics professionals, conference organizers are expecting between 2200 and 2500 attendees this year.
