Wendy Siminski joined AdvaMed in April 2018, serving as Senior Vice President of the organization’s Conferences & Events department, following AdvaMed’s acquisition of The Medtech Conference. An award-winning marketing and event expert, Wendy was selected to lead this new team based on her track record of successfully producing (and growing) some of the top tradeshows in the US.

Wendy’s experience included more than 15 years in event production and organizational growth strategies. Prior to joining AdvaMed, Wendy spent nearly six years at the Biotechnology Innovation Organization, where she held management roles in marketing and customer experience. She also worked at several Washington, D.C., associations, including the AUVSI Foundation, O’Keefe Communications, National Trade Productions and the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association. Wendy was a graduate of Virginia Tech, where she pursued a double major in English and Psychology.

An avid Washington Capitals fan, Wendy was also a devoted mom to two daughters, a mentor for young professionals in events, and relentless patient advocate.
