UBM Canon Celebrates the 30th Anniversary of MD&M East, the East Coast's Largest Medical OEM Event, and the 15th Anniversary of the Medical Design Excellence Awards, the MedTech Industry's Premier Awards Program

SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Canon will commemorate 30 years of service to the medical manufacturing and design community at its Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M)  East event in Philadelphia, June 18-20.  MD&M East attracts thousands of medical device development professionals from the entire spectrum of research and development, manufacturing, operations, regulatory and clinical affairs, and executive management from all around the world.  MD&M East's main goal is to connect MedTech professionals to the inspiration, partnerships, education, and technologies needed to drive medical device innovation.




According to Dan Cutrone , Marketing Director of UBM Canon, "Both attendees and exhibitors find significant value in the face-to-face meetings held during the event. In 2012, 1,040 exhibitors held nearly 27,000 meetings in just three days. These interactions help drive innovation and speed time to market. The extensive conference program provides education and facilitates networking for medical device industry professionals. For 2013, the event will offer even more features, such as product teardowns, awards presentations, and networking receptions."

During MD&M East, UBM Canon will also be celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA), the MedTech industry's premier competition for medical device design and innovation. The MDEA Program recognizes the achievements of medical device manufacturers, their suppliers, and the many people behind the scenes—engineers, scientists, designers, and clinicians—who are responsible for the groundbreaking innovations that are changing the face of healthcare.  MDEA-finalist and winning entries excel in the areas of product innovation, design and engineering achievement, end-user benefit, and cost-effectiveness in manufacturing and healthcare delivery.

"We are incredibly proud to celebrate a long tradition of innovation and design in medical device products," stated Heather Thompson , Editor-in-Chief, MD+DI. "This year marks the 15th anniversary of the MDEA awards, which have honored over 500 groundbreaking products."

See what the jurors have to say about the MDEA program. The 2013 MDEA Juror Panel selected 46 finalists in 10 medical product categories.   Winning products will be announced at the 2013 MDEA Ceremony on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at 4:30 pm inside the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown hotel.  The ceremony is held in conjunction with the 30th MD&M East event at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, June 18-20.
