Medical Alley IS the “Global Epicenter of Health Innovation and Care”
World Health Technology Community Comes to Minnesota in October
Minnesota. Medical Alley. It’s time. Medical Alley members, from large organizations like Mayo, Medtronic, St. Jude Medical, Boston Scientific, Smiths Medical, 3M and Coloplast, to emerging leaders like CVRx, Zipnosis and Rebiotix, have all been asking for one action – TELL OUR STORY!
You’ve done the work – saved and improved millions of lives, built world-leading organizations and pushed the bounds of innovation for better health. It’s time we connect this community’s expertise, excellence and global impact to the narrative it deserves and an audience that can solidify Minnesota’s Medical Alley as THE global epicenter of health innovation and care. Not like Silicon Valley. Better.
The Medical Alley Association has made this our top priority and set the stage. We gave up our annual conference to bring AdvaMed 2016 to Minnesota. We rebranded the association. We’ve invested in telling your stories and built partnerships to spread the word. This community deserves to be the center of one of health technology’s biggest global stages and we’re proud to help bring this opportunity to Medical Alley.
Now it’s time to show the world what we’re made of. Our local host chairs have done an amazing job – Jeff McCaulley of Smiths Medical, Mike Genau of Medtronic and Nadim Yared of CVRx. Our leaders will be sharing their insights – including a panel on The Future of Health Care Delivery that will feature Medtronic’s Omar Ishrak, Mayo’s Dr. John Noseworthy and UHG’s Dr. Richard Migliori. Our policy leaders will be featured, including the Governor and Lt. Governor, U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken and Congressman Erik Paulsen. There will also be a Minnesota State legislative hearing onsite. And a party at the new U.S. Bank Stadium!
Most importantly, executives, officials and press from around the world will be here, many to see us for the first time. What will they see? They will see an exhibit floor with “Minnesota’s Medical Alley” as the main thoroughfare, lined with organizations that drive our community – large and small. They will see leadership and a community unlike any other. Lining “Medical Alley” will be booths that feature Medtronic, Boston Scientific, St. Jude Medical, Smiths Medical, 3M Healthcare and Coloplast. And here’s what’s so special about the Medical Alley culture – these companies have NOT regularly had a booth at this event AND all of these companies agreed, together, to have the same sized booths to show the spirit of Medical Alley and to sit as equals in the promotion of this region!
What is Medical Alley asking of you? Participate! The quality of content and connections that exists at the AdvaMed Conference is more than worth the price of admission, regardless of location. But this year, it’s ours. This is our opportunity to show the strength and commitment of this community. To show the world who we are. To bring at least 1,000 Minnesota leaders to one place. To outshine Boston, San Diego and Chicago. To create a bar that San Jose and Silicon Valley can’t match in 2017 – and to ensure that Minnesota will increasingly be hosting events of this magnitude, including the return of AdvaMed in the future.
If you’re in medical technology in Minnesota, please join us October 17-19. If you’re in one of Minnesota’s other flourishing health technology sectors, we need you too. On Tuesday, we cut the “Medical Alley” ribbon. Our leaders. Our community. We’ve asked for the opportunity to elevate Medical Alley and gain the recognition you’ve earned. The opportunity is now.
Let’s go Medical Alley. This is our time!
