There is a new push underway to build on the momentum of the 'New Buffalo." Visit Buffalo Niagara is calling on local residents to act as ambassadors for the Queen City to boost the region's economy.
This week the new Marriott HARBORCENTER is playing host to the annual MedTech conference. More than 300 medical technology professionals from across New York State are in town. Patrick Whalen, Chief Operating Officer of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, helped bring the MedTech conference to Buffalo.
"Bringing people to Buffalo and showing them what is going on is vitally important," said Whalen.
"You have to come to Buffalo," said Jessica Crawford, President of MedTech. "There is so much happening and I'm hearing more and more companies wanting to have a location here. Check out Buffalo. I keep hearing Buffalo what's happening there? You have to check it out. You have to see it for yourself."
