The Future of OMTEC

Virtual Education Series | OMTEC 2022

Dear Colleague,

Last year we announced the cancellation of the in-person OMTEC, originally scheduled to take place June 15-17, 2021 in Chicago.

As many of you know, our June 2020 event was also canceled. After 15 years of uniting the orthopedic product development community, the loss of two consecutive events brought enormous disappointment and sadness—not only to me personally, but to your entire OMTEC team.

Alas - we are not ones to "wait and see". We immediately bolstered resources for 2 key initiatives we'd had in the works; a virtual education series and a robustly enhanced Supplier Directory.


  • In cooperation with our Advisory Board, we built 24 on-demand webinars to address topics ranging from market forecasts to smart manufacturing to product development and culture. Register on this site to watch them all.

  • We also continued the tradition of bringing you high-level, future-oriented Keynote Addresses in the form of two live webinars to be held June 16 and 17, 2021. Learn more and register for these Keynotes today:
    --- Executive Insights: State and Future of the Orthopedic Industry
    --- Preparing for the Shift in Orthopedic Procedures to Outpatient Settings.

  • The Supplier Directory, utilized by orthopedic OEMs for two decades, is presently receiving significant improvements to its interface and user experience and will be unveiled on or before July 2021. The Supplier Directory will serve as OMTEC’s online marketplace.


We plan to gather for OMTEC in 2022, June 14-16 at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. We’ll make formal announcements in October. Please know that OMTEC’s mission remains unchanged: to educate, connect and empower the people who build orthopedic products.

Thank you for your support, guidance, trust and friendship. We wish you and yours continued good health and prosperity and remain, very truly, at your service.

Most sincerely,
April C. Bright | General Manager
ORTHOWORLD®
