The Accumold marketing team heads back to California next week to participate in MedTechWorld’s MD&M West exposition, which is an annual mainstay for medical device manufacturers.

MD&M West, which is set for Feb. 9-10, at the Anaheim Convention Center, is the third conference and exhibition for the Accumold marketing staff in less than a month. It comes on the heels of the Jan. 19-21 DesignCon 2016 in Santa Clara, Calif., and the Jan. 26-27 Wearable technologies 2016 Europe gathering in Munich, Germany.

“Organizers like to say MD&M West is a ‘can’t-miss’ event for the medical device industry and we’ve certainly felt that way for many years. We attend because of the long-time contacts we have and have made at past expos and the new people we’ll meet this year and begin to work with going forward,” said Aaron Johnson, Accumold’s Vice President of Marketing and Customer Strategy.

This year’s keynote speaker is Ray Kurzweil, who is considered one of the world’s leading inventors, thinkers and futurists. Among Kurzweil’s inventions are the first charge-coupled device flatbed scanner, omni-font optical character recognition, print-to-speech reading machine for the blind, text-to-speech synthesizer, and large-vocabulary speech recognition, are among his long list of creations.

Accumold will be among more than 2000 of the world’s most innovative suppliers at the expo to demonstrate state-of-the-art technologies in the ever-evolving medical device field.

Since its inception in 1985, Accumold’s mission has been to produce super-micro, ultra-precision, plastic injection-molded parts.
