Attending MD&M West and the Value of Exhibitions

medtech world
Visit BCE at booth 2184
This week BCE is exhibiting at MD&M West (Medical Design and Manufacturing West) in Anaheim, CA. While the title implies medical equipment design, the exhibition also includes packaging equipment and other related equipment. The show runs Feb. 9, 10 and 11.

MD&M is the world's largest medical design and manufacturing exhibition. It "offers three days of technical presentations, hands-on design workshops, demonstrations and ticks and tricks to help you stay ahead of the game in 2016."

Representatives from many well-know "Medtech" companies will attend and a full 3 days of presentations are planned. Some of the more interesting titles are "The Creative Keys: How to Turn a Thought Into a Thing with Ease and Grace", "New Product Development Technologies and NexGen Applications", and "Leading the Smart Manufacturing Revolution".

BCE's Applied Resistance Group will showcase its thermal system design capabilities, advanced ceramics machining, laser machining, and thick film circuits and heaters. BCE is quickly developing a nation-wide reputation as an excellent partner for these products.

Exhibitions and trade shows are great places to network and build business relationships. Face-to-face contact with prospective customers and vendors provide an opportunity for strong business relationship foundations. Meeting with someone in person is far better than meeting online.

One huge benefit of attending an exhibition is the ability to meet large numbers of helpful people in one place. When attending an exhibition, it's best to plan ahead and utilize your time efficiently. Set up appointments in advance so that you don't waste time wondering. Make a list of booths and people you really want to get to know. And please, stop by the BCE booth (2184) - you'll be glad you did.
