COVID-19 Update

OMTEC 2020 Has Been Postponed

Dear Colleague,

We were so excited to bring you the biggest and best OMTEC this summer—alas, we must postpone it until June 2021. The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc on business and life as we know it. We recognize that you, your customers, your partners and your peers will be managing more pressing priorities this year. You can count on us to provide strategic insights and market projections to help you navigate through this tumultuous time.

Please know that OMTEC’s mission remains unchanged: to educate, connect and empower the people who build orthopedic products. As such we will be offering new, innovative digital offerings in response to your most pressing needs and we will continue to build an exciting and powerful program for OMTEC in 2021, June 15-17 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.

Thank you for your support of OMTEC and for your commitment to the continued advancement of the life-enhancing specialty of orthopedics. We wish you and yours continued good health and prosperity and remain, very truly, at your service.

Most sincerely,
April C. Bright | General Manager
