Mass. medical device companies ready to market wares
As medical technology leaders gather in Boston, state officials and local companies make a case for Massachusetts
More than 2,000 medical device executives are convening in Boston this week for what’s expected to be the largest convention ever of the Advanced Medical Technology Association, and the first outside its home base of Washington, D.C. The three-day AdvaMed 2012 event, opening Monday at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, will showcase the Massachusetts device sector, one of the nation’s biggest with about 24,500 employees. The trade group’s event will also spotlight an industry in transition.
