MedTech Will Hold 2011 Annual Conference in Rochester
Monday, February 28, 2011
SYRACUSE, N.Y.—MedTech, the hub of Upstate New York’s bioscience and medical technology industry, will hold its 2011 annual conference—MEDTECH 2011—at the Hyatt Regency Rochester on Tuesday, Sept. 13.
The announcement of this location marks a shift for MedTech. For six years, the association has hosted its annual conference in the Syracuse area—the last four years were at the Lodge at Welch Allyn (2007–2010). This year, MedTech explored alternative facilities, driven by the need for expanded capacity and desire to maintain the close, synergistic atmosphere valued by past conference attendees.
“We’ve reached an exciting point in MedTech’s growth. The continued expansion of our community and connections between Upstate New York’s Bio/Med companies will be greatly enhanced by this year’s conference venue,” said Heather Erickson, president of MedTech. “We’re thrilled that last year’s sell-out crowd led us to find a site that would accommodate the size and energy of future conferences.”
MEDTECH 2011 is a full day gathering of bioscience and medical technology professionals from across Upstate New York. Last year’s conference drew a record crowd of 218 executives, managers and business leaders from the Upstate Bio/Med community. It was the second year in a row the conference sold out.
