MD&M moves inland for Minneapolis show – Brief Article – Statistical Data Included
Medical Design and Manufacturing (MD&M) events move once again from more traditional locales on the East and West coasts when MD&M Minneapolis is held Oct. 17-18, 2001 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
Last year, says MD&M, more than 3,000 medical manufacturing and design professionals crowded the exhibit hall in what it called the Midwest’s largest and best attended device and manufacturing exhibition.
More than 77% of those attendees were directly involved in purchasing for their respective companies, says MD&M, and 35% of all attendees represented companies with more than 500 employees. For pure regional appeal, 92% were described as coming from the Midwest.
MD&M also broke attendee demographics into specific groups:
* Research and Development–23%
* General/Corporate Management–17%
* Quality Assurance/Quality Control–7%
* Regulator/Legal Affairs–1%.
A number of conference sessions are intended to attract device buyers to the event, including “Thriving In the World of Internet-enabled Medical Device Commerce.”
