Hologic, Hospira, Boston Scientific, Allergan to Participate in Leading Medical Device Manufacturing Symposium

RAMSEY, N.J., March 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Top medical device manufacturers are supporting MPO Symposium Costa Rica, the leading medical device manufacturing conference series.

Hologic, Hospira, Boston Scientific, Allergan, Siemens, as well as the Costa Rican government are active participants in this don't-miss international event, taking place May 11-13 at the Marriott Costa Rica in San Jose. In addition to the impressive roster of topics and speakers scheduled, one of the unique—and most exciting—features of attending MPO Symposium Costa Rica is the opportunity to visit the local facilities of global medtech manufacturers. A select group of companies will open their doors for Symposium attendees to share their knowledge about the intricacies of doing business abroad and creating world-class manufacturing centers offshore.

The plant tours (space is limited, so please register early) are only one part of the conference experience, however. The conference kicks off on May 11 with one-to-one meetings arranged by the conference coordinators to pair suppliers and contract manufacturers with medical device firms. A welcome reception concludes the first day. The following day presents conference sessions covering topics such as the supplier quality evaluation process, modern Lean manufacturing techniques and managing global manufacturing relationships. The meeting culminates with a golf outing on the final day. The agenda is designed to allow conference-goers to learn, actively participate in discussions and make critical business contacts.

"MPO Symposium is the most unique event of its kind in the medical device space," said Howard Revitch, group publisher for the Medical Device Group at Rodman Publishing.  "This event presents a rare opportunity to learn firsthand from manufacturers, peers and top-notch speakers."  

MPO Symposium Costa Rica, which is hosted by Medical Product Outsourcing magazine, builds on the success of the inaugural event held in 2009 and will continue to deliver quality education and networking opportunities for medical device manufacturers.

Register at, read the full agenda and speaker biographies.  Registration is limited for all conference functions.

MPO Symposium is proudly supported by leading suppliers and contract manufacturers including Helix Medical, Tegra Medical, Vention Medical, Applied Silicone Corporation, ATEK Medical, Beam One, Cadence, Expeditors, GW Plastics, Modified Polymer Components, Nusil, Polymer Solutions, Precision Concepts Costa Rica, Specialty Coating Systems, SMC Ltd., CINDE, DHL, Event Consulting Group, Medical Devices Group,, and Medical Product Outsourcing magazine.

In 2011, the MPO Symposium also will be held domestically Oct. 19-20 at the Conference Center at Waltham Woods, in Waltham, Mass. The website for our annual New England event will be updated after May's program has concluded.
