Just back from MEDTEC Europe 2011 in Stuttgart, Accumold’s marketing team makes its way to Boston and Chicago in the week ahead for three trade conferences.

The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) is hosting “Explore the Enormity of the Small” on April 5-6. The micro-manufacturing conference and exhibition will be at the Drury Lane Conference Center in Oakbrook Terrace, Ill. The conference’s keynote speaker will be Jon Rambeau, Lockheed Martin vice president of technology transition.

“Conference sponsors have that participants will be looking for ideas to improve their processes in creating micro-features on micro-parts or on macro-parts. That’s exactly the audience Accumold wants to reach because we have proprietary knowledge that makes us a global leader,” said Paul Runyan, Accumold vice president of marketing and sales.

The BIOMEDevice Forum in Boston is a two-day exposition on April 6-7 that is “designed to provide medical technology executives the information they need to stay ahead of their competition,” according to organizers. The forum delivers that information through a series of keynote presentations, case studies and high-level technology sessions within the sector specific areas of cardiovascular, accessing global med-tech markets, neuro-technology, and targeted drug delivery and diagnostics.

“The BIOMEDevice Forum planners say the current economic climate has not slowed the pace of technological innovation, but it has heightened the level of competition within the life science industry. They’re absolutely right – and that’s why it’s important for us to be there to keep ahead of the learning curve and to share what we have to offer,” Runyan noted.

AudiologyNow! Chicago will run from April 6-9. The theme of the 2011 annual convention for the American Academy of Audiology is “Innovation to Implementation”. Practitioners, researchers, and exhibitors will share the latest in clinical concepts, technology, and practice development. Focus areas at this year’s convention are neuro-audiology, pediatrics, practice-related issues, treatment, vestibular, and hot topics.
