The MedTech Association held its 15th Annual Conference in Rochester at the Hyatt Regency. With a milestone year and plenty of new additions to the conference structure, there was a lot of buzz leading up to this event.
This year's conference was more refined and targeted to connect our members, and those still considering, with strategies to bring innovations to market, tackle shared workforce challenges, and super-charge New York's Bio/Med economy - all embodied in the conference theme of Employing Innovation: Driving New York's Bio/Med Economy.
New to this year's conference, when compared to MedTech 2018, was the MedTech Achievement Awards Ceremony and dinner. This was a staple for previous MedTech events and after being rethought and reinvigorated, it made a comeback. The ceremony and dinner were very well attended with numbers reaching 200+.

When referencing staples of MedTech events, there are a couple things that come to mind: the ever-popular Speed Networking and the Tech Showcase. Popularity for each of these aspects grew from 2018 to 2019, showing an increase in participation for both events.
Also new to this year's conference was the CEO/Board of Directors Roundtable Luncheon that featured an "Invitation Only" discussion between sponsoring company C-Suite Executives, MedTech's Board of Directors, and Mike Lefebvre, Deputy Director for Workforce Development, Office of NY Gov. Cuomo.
The education and panel sessions included:
- Industry-University Partnerships
- Applying Big Data to Healthcare
- Cross Border Initiatives
- Manufacturing for the Bio/Med Industry
- New York State Workforce Development Initiatives
- Pioneering Innovation
MedTech's next event will be November 20 at OneGroup in Syracuse for a MedTech Meet Up focusing on a Spotlight of Syracuse. It will feature Central New York area members who are moving the needle forward in advancements and innovations in care for the aging population. It will also feature representation from the Syracuse Mayor's office to discuss Syracuse's future as a "Microsoft Smart Cities Technology Hub." Learn more about this event here.
