MPO Summit: What They’re Saying…

“The 2022 MPO Summit exceeded my expectations. The event lends itself to more personal interactions and a more free exchange of ideas than other large-scale industry events I have attended. I also found the attendees to be more senior within their organizations and the new contacts more actionable than I have experienced at other industry events. The speaker series was excellent as well. I am looking forward to the 2023 MPO Summit in San Diego.

—Jay Binkley, Chairman, Bentec Medical

“The MPO Summit was a great conference. It was my first Summit and it exceeded my expectations. Good content, good people, and overall, well worth attending. Looking forward to attending again.”

—Mike Groves, President, Global Recruiters of Fishers

“The team at Rodman Media takes the time to stay current with the pulse of the medical industry. Each publication has relevant information about latest trends, insights from different stakeholders, and interviews that garner insightful knowledge for the readers. The MPO Summits have a wide array of representation from the medical industry and always addresses the ‘tough’ questions; years past have included topics about labor shortages, women in the industry, and the medical device tax. Great resource to stay current in the medical device industry!”

—Dawn A. Lissy, President, Empirical Technologies

“The 2021 MPO Summit was excellent in that all of the presentations, panels, and attendees were of a high caliber, and like-minded in their spirit to share their knowledge and experience freely. Unlike a normal industry trade show, the Summit enabled all participants to attend on a level field, and in a format that provided a significant opportunity to network and learn from industry leaders.”

—Neel Patel, Vice President, Florida Anodize System and Technologies (FAST)

“The MPO Summit has always been the voice of, and for, the medical device industry because Howard Revitch and his team insist on listening to the members of this industry who have forged its strength and growth. They ask ‘How can MPO help you meet your objectives?’ and then go about scheduling a conference agenda that focuses on just that. If it is discussed at the MPO Summit, it is an important subject for OEMs and their CMOs.”

—Tom Black, New Business Development Manager, Command Medical Products

“I have more conversations with industry leaders at the MPO Summit than any other event focusing on the medical device supply chain. The quality of the sessions coupled with an inquisitive audience makes the MPO Summit a ‘must-attend’ event for anyone interested in moving ahead in the industry.”

—Tony Freeman, President, A.S. Freeman Advisors LLC

“The annual MPO Summit is a must-attend event. It amazes me how each and every year, they improve from the prior Summit. The event offers attendees a true setting for leaders in the medtech family to network, discuss key issues, and move the industry in a positive and meaningful way forward. The panelist topics are detailed and educational, ranging in focus from materials to design innovations to regulatory to supply chain. As an editorial board member, I have cultivated many professional and personal vital industry relationships over the last decade.”

—J. Mark King, Retired President/CEO, Tegra Medical; Operating Partner, Vance Street Capital

“We value our participation in the MPO Summit as it is “THE MEETING” where leading members of the medtech community get together for the purposes of networking, discussing key issues and opportunities, and determining how we move this industry forward together. If staying topical on critical issues and meeting industry leaders is helpful to your business, I highly recommend you attend the MPO Summit.”

—Dave Sheppard, CMAA, Co-Founder & Managing Director, MedWorld Advisors

“The MPO Summit is a terrific opportunity to get a snapshot of the industry, network with industry leaders, and leave the event with more insight and understanding of how the medical device supply chain is evolving in a rapidly changing world.”

—Bryce G. Rutter, Ph.D., Founder & CEO, Metaphase Design Group

“2018 represented our first time at the MPO Summit and it was fantastic! The team’s attention to detail was the differentiator for us. The quality of the speakers, staff checking in/assistance/welcoming, networking opportunities, venue, food—the list goes on! Very nice job to Howard and his team! We will be back next year for sure.”

—Donna Bibber, Vice President of Business Development, Isometric Micro Molding Inc.

“We have found the MPO Summit to be an incredible value over the past several years. The events are extremely well organized and provide industry relevant content we feel would benefit anyone in the medical manufacturing industry. Also, the low-pressure networking events provide us the opportunity to connect with existing and new colleagues.”

—Dan Snyder, Sales Manager, Plastikos and Micro Mold

“The MPO Summit is well tuned to the medical device marketplace and particularly service providers in the business of outsourcing. They have been an essential part of Robson Advisors’ marketing effort, which has helped to establish our brand and make key connections within the industry. The team at MPO has been excellent to work with.”

—David C. Robson, Principal, Robson Advisors LLC

“I have enjoyed working with the MPO/ODT team for the last seven years. They have been very creative and accommodating, working to help me make the most out of my advertising budget. We have found the MPO Summits to be extremely beneficial and have continued to increase our involvement with them. We really appreciate all their help over the years.”

—John Woodhouse, Director of Sales and Marketing, MedBio

“Since inception, the Medical Product Outsourcing summits have been instrumental to my organization’s success and hold ‘priority status’ in my schedule. Whether I was leading strategic sourcing for one of the largest medical device OEMs in the industry, running one of Inc. Magazine’s fastest growing contract manufacturing organizations, or consulting with global clients, the MPO summits have been a must. The Affordable Care Act requires a ‘village’ to navigate. I can’t think of a better GPS than the MPO summits…along with the ‘village’ you will meet while you’re there!”

—Christopher A. Oleksy, Founder and CEO, Oleksy Enterprises/Co-Founder and CEO, Next Life Medical

“MPO has been a strategic partner for MTD for many years. They work with us to create customized and effective solutions for online, print, and their annual Summit event to help our company tell our unique story.”

—Lindsay Mann, Director of Marketing, MTD Micromolding

“As an experienced regulatory consultant, I am invited to present at many medical device industry events. The MPO Summit was one of the most well-organized conferences in recent years. Both the audience and venue were conducive to education and networking—key features I look for when deciding which conferences to attend and which not to. Thanks MPO; I look forward to participating again in the future!”

—Michael Drues, Ph.D., President, Vascular Sciences

“The MPO Summit launched several opportunities for my business with directed and specific industry experts and connections. To be in a room with so many industry insiders, medical device experts, and smart business people enables continued business growth and continuous learning from the important and relevant topics discussed at the forum.”

—Marissa Fayer, President, Fayer Consulting LLC

“The MPO Summit team does a fantastic job with the annual event. From a conference standpoint, it is continually evolving every year, featuring relevant, expert presentations that are informative for anyone in the medical device or outsourcing space. Also, the mix of representatives from OEMs, CMs, and service providers in attendance make it a valuable networking event.”

—Mark Bonifacio, President, Bonifacio Consulting

“While there are no shortages of industry conferences and meetings these days, MPO events have consistently been well worth attending. With interesting presentations, interactive forums, and a range of networking opportunities, the MPO meetings have always provided me with a number of great ideas and several new industry contacts. As a consequence, when deciding which conferences to attend, the MPO Summit is always a must-do.”

—Ben Dunn, Managing Director, Covington Associates
