The MedTech Showcase is an excellent opportunity for members of the region’s medical device community to learn more about the business plans and technologies being developed by local medtech start-ups. This year’s roster of presenting companies includes area companies, and, thanks to MassMEDIC’s partnership with international organizations, the agenda includes start-ups from Canada, the Paris region, Catalunya, and Germany.

In addition to the company presentations, program segments will include a luncheon panel discussion on medtech’s investment outlook and structured networking periods. Once again, this year emerging companies will be judged by the audience on the strength of their technologies, meeting an unmet clinical needs, and the corporate team.

The Showcase attracts over 300 attendees, including industry representatives and potential investors and strategic partners. It’s the region’s largest medtech showcase for medtech start-ups, providing attendees with a preview of  new medical technologies and a unique opportunity to interact with medtech entrepreneurs.
