Testimonials

Attendees say:

I like that the core of the OMTEC meeting is bringing vendors together with the manufacturers.


Director Regulatory Affairs
Active Implants


At OMTEC, I gained knowledge of the capabilities of various suppliers—I can put that to immediate use.


Commercial Affairs
AMB Surgical


Good organization—[OMTEC] ran like clockwork. The Final Program was very helpful and the communication by email prior to the show was excellent. It’s invaluable for small or medium OEMs to help find partners in the medical industry. I gained an improved understanding of some of the available suppliers in the industry that I can consider for the future.


Director of Operations
Intellijoint Surgical


I’ve attended more than one OMTEC event. The quality of the meeting keeps me coming back. I talked to several vendors who are thinking of stopping their participation in other meetings, because they feel they get more bang for their buck here.

OMTEC is the best place to find so many ortho suppliers in one location. The education opportunities are always on par with industry trends. Dr. Froimson (keynote address) did a phenomenal job of connecting with the suppliers and OEMs alike and helping all to understand how to best create value.


Engineering Director
Medtronic


It is good to have all suppliers in one location for networking and business opportunities. This keeps me coming back to OMTEC.


Buyer
Total Joint Orthopedics Inc.


I want to thank the ORTHOWORLD team for preparing and running the most fulfilling and educational orthopaedic conference that I have ever attended. I learned a lot about the industry, made numerous connections with industry leaders and left with renewed passion for this industry and work.


Additive Manufacturing Engineer
Osseus Fusion Systems


Due to our fast growth, we are seeking new suppliers. OMTEC provides a nice venue for this collaboration.


Chief Technology Officer & Co-Founder

I always enjoy [OMTEC]. Great location, great staff, highly professional.


Senior Procurement Manager
Spine Wave


I felt that 75% of the educational settings were truly a value add. I am fairly new to the medical device industry, and the information I learned was invaluable. Heath Rushing had an amazing delivery with a topic which would be difficult for a layperson like me.

All of the staff were very helpful and engaging. When I was lost or looked slightly misplaced, they readily assisted. I believe it was a great experience.

Senior Procurement Manager
Spine Wave


Each year that I attend OMTEC, I recommit to leveraging OMTEC as a team building event between Quality, Ops, Regulatory and Product Development. OMTEC is an incredible environment for these teams to interact outside of the office.


Director Product Development

I’m new to my role for Zimmer Biomet. The opportunity to meet supplier leadership at this conference was priceless.


Sourcing Director - Machining Category Management

I could not be happier with our first experience at OMTEC! To do it over again I would have brought four people instead of two. This is what I will be doing next year. Thank you for bringing real value in what you do.


President

[The keynote offered] Good perspective from the hospital side. Makes me consider the types of devices that we are developing and what their impact and acceptance will be in the changing healthcare climate.

This [Keynote Address from Wael K. Barsoum on Balancing Development and Value in Medical Device Advancements] was worth the price of admission.

[Dr. Barsoum’s Keynote] was a great and balanced presentation regarding the value proposition for hospitals in regard to cost and quality of the products and services offered. It was good that this was presented by someone with authority and experience on the subject.

OMTEC 2017 was a record year for leads. We had two major companies look up our booth and demand our services. That doesn’t happen every day!

OMTEC delivers strong attendance and good opportunities to get in front of current and potential new customers. Together, we’re advancing our businesses and the specialty of orthopaedics.

OMTEC is operated better than any other exhibition. It is easy to exhibit and is a good value for the investment of time and resources.


Director of Sales
Acme Manufacturing


OMTEC is a well-thought-out show. I personally heard several comments regarding how it felt high-class.


Director Sales & Marketing
Micro Machine


Since OMTEC is focused solely on orthopedics, the show is smaller and more intimate, and every attendee is practically a pre-qualified lead, which we like. The show is always classy and executed with perfection, the guest speakers excellent and the food terrific. We plan to exhibit at OMTEC indefinitely.


Inside Technical Sales
Norman Noble


OMTEC is a great opportunity to have business development meetings with existing customers and meet a few new customers. This is why we continue to exhibit.
