WASHINGTON, D.C. – From September 27-30, The Medtech Conference 2021 will host a robust line-up of thought leaders from inside and outside the health care arena to discuss the top issues facing the medical technology industry and health care more broadly. The theme of the conference, MedTech Amplified, highlights the amplified coordination and united efforts to support the global fight against the coronavirus—from testing to treatment to mitigation devices for patients.

The hybrid event boasts a line-up including Former Defense Secretary and U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel; Dr. Jeff Shuren, Director of the Center for Devices and Radiological Health at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA); Bakul Patel, the first head of FDA’s Digital Health Center of Excellence; the Federal Reserve’s Dr. Mark Wright; Geoff Martha, CEO of the world’s largest medtech company; and others. A full line-up and agenda is available online here.

“After two years since our last in-person Conference, we are excited to once again gather as an industry in D.C. and Minneapolis, a top hub of medical innovation and excellence. As always, we have a great lineup of the industry’s top leaders and minds and so many opportunities to network and help attendees take their companies to the next level on behalf of the patients they serve. The challenges created by the pandemic make it all the more important that we engage as an industry through The MedTech Conference on our collective goal improving and saving patients’ lives around the world,” said Scott Whitaker, CEO of AdvaMed.
