MD&M MINNEAPOLIS TRADE SHOW: SHORT TRIP THAT’S LONG ON OPPORTUNITIES FOR ACCUMOLD MARKETING TEAM

With trade show stops already under its belt this year in such far-flung destinations as Stuttgart, Toronto, Los Angeles, Boston, and Birmingham, England, Accumold’s marketing team will practically feel at home during next week’s Medical Design and Manufacturing Minneapolis exposition and conference.

The MD&M Minneapolis trade show on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 is dedicated to the Upper Midwest’s $16 billion medical device market. It is the most comprehensive resource for every aspect of medical device development, drawing med-tech professionals and leading medical original equipment manufacturer (OEM) suppliers together to provide immediate hands-on access to the tools that help speed new devices to market.

“MD&M Minneapolis attracts 9,000 of the region’s medical-market decision makers,” Accumold marketing manager Aaron Johnson said. “I’d be hard pressed to overstate its reach and value because Minneapolis-St. Paul and surrounding communities are home to the world’s leading developers and producers of cardiovascular and orthopedic devices, two of the leading sectors in medical manufacturing today. It always offers many opportunities to connect with prospective clients, old friends and industry leaders from Medtronic, Guidant and Boston Scientific to Johnson & Johnson, Stryker and 3M.”

Since its inception in 1985, Accumold’s mission has been the production of super-micro, ultra-precision, plastic injection-molded parts. Parts manufactured by the firm are critical components of the medical, automotive, military, aerospace and telecommunications industries. They can be found in micro-electronics, cell phones, telecommunications, surgical tools, hearing aids, medical devices, antennas, connectors and more. To produce those parts, Accumold builds specialized molding machines engineered to handle volumes from prototypes to millions per year while maintaining consistent, precise tolerances that are unique in the industry.
