MINNEAPOLIS — The Twin Cities will add to its reputation as the med-tech innovation, communication, and solution epicenter of the Midwest in late September when the 22nd edition of Medical Design & Manufacturing Minneapolis opens its doors.

“Sometimes when you’ve been doing something a long time, things can get a bit stale and predictable. On the other hand, when you’ve been doing something a long time it’s because people appreciate the value they’re receiving,” said Accumold Vice President of Marketing and Customer Strategy Aaron Johnson. “MD&M Minneapolis is a great example of the latter. Its organizers ad sponsors always seem to keep innovating and attracting the best of the best. They’re in their 22nd year because hundreds of suppliers and more than 5,000 industry professionals like us appreciate the value we receive.”

The two-day MD&M Minneapolis opens Sept. 21 with the latest information about current industry trends and shifts, interactive sessions led by the industry’s top experts and keynote presentations from leading medical minds.

“We’re especially looking forward to the insights of Scott Nelson, CEO/CTO of Reuleaux Technology. He has an intriguing take on technology: it’s not enough to make it work, you have to make sure it truly matters to the people who use it. It sounds easy but in a marketplace with ever-changing expectations, it’s not,” Johnson said. “Smart design is the key to success and that’s what Accumold is all about. I’m sure a number of people who see Scott Nelson’s presentation and stop by our booth will instantly make that connection.”

He added, “Minneapolis maybe be considered the med-tech epicenter of the Midwest, but a lot of folks know Accumold is just a short trip down Interstate 35 and our people and technology are the difference between a great idea and a great idea that you can take to market. That’s a story we never get tired of sharing at MD&M Minneapolis and everywhere else around the world.”
