Recap of BIOMEDevice/ Design and Manufacturing Show in Boston

My coworker, Mike O’Connell, and I worked our booth at the BIOMEDevice/ Design & Manufacturing show in Boston last week.  The show highlighted new and innovative medical technologies, prototyping, engineering, manufacturing, assembly, and packaging. 

At the show, we had the opportunity to meet many new people and learn more about their projects and current challenges they are facing.  We had many inquiries on custom product labels as well as medical tape die cutting and packaging.  Other discussions we had were on unique hydrogel applications and other disposable medical device applications.

We were blessed with beautiful weather while visiting Boston, and during our down time we enjoyed dining alfresco on fresh seafood the region has to offer at restaurants on the harbor and at Faneuil Hall. These locations and historical sites of Boston are all within walking distance of the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

To learn more about what we offered attendees at the show, please contact us.
