About the MPO Symposium
Welcome to the MPO Symposium, an MPO Summit Webcast Series. Given the changes to all of our lives, schedules, and travel plans, the MPO Symposium enables MPO readers to still have an opportunity for an educational and networking experience they are accustomed to at the quality level they have come to expect.
The virtual event consists of eight webinar sessions over four weeks—beginning June 15 and ending June 24 with two sessions each week. The content will also be archived and available on-demand for six months following the start of the event.
For the 2021 MPO Symposium, we enlisted the help of various representatives from medtech’s supply chain, including product development specialists, material experts, component fabricators, and electronics suppliers. We assembled four panels (one for each topic) to educate us on the challenges and opportunities that are available within each segment. Each panel will share best practices, important factors to consider, and questions to ask suppliers before embarking on your next project.
Learn from our expert speaker line-up, ask questions, visit with sponsors, and gain as much information as possible from this year’s event.
