Letter from the Chairman

Dear MedTech Colleague:

For the first time ever, AdvaMed 2014: The MedTech Conference will be traveling to Chicago, and it is my pleasure as conference chairman to invite you to join us at what will be the premier “must-attend” MedTech event of the year. Not only is Chicago an amazing destination full of sights, shopping, and famous landmarks, it’s an international hub for finance, commerce, industry, telecommunications and transportation. Chicago is a city synonymous with enterprise, progress and growth, which is why we are thrilled to host our annual conference here.

As the medical technology industry continues to undergo rapid and transformative changes, as well as face imposing policy challenges, there could not be a more important time for you to participate.

Our conference is a global event and the largest gathering of MedTech professionals in North America, with the goals of sharing insights on the regulatory, reimbursement, legal, compliance and business issues driving our industry; access to key leaders and the unparalleled opportunity to connect and network with your colleagues.

AdvaMed 2014 promises to bring together more than 2,400 of the brightest minds in the industry. As your chairman, I will work alongside my colleagues to promote life changing innovations, provide education on the regulatory environment, raise awareness of critical issues and perhaps most importantly, work together to move our industry forward.

I hope you will join me in Chicago at AdvaMed 2014 to take advantage of this experience and ensure we continue to advance our companies and the medical technology industry.
