About the MPO Symposium

Welcome to the MPO Symposium, an MPO Summit Virtual Event. 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 October 20 and ending November 17 with two sessions each week. The content will also be archived and available on-demand for six months following the start of the event.

Just like the MPO Summit’s agenda, the topics covered during the MPO Symposium will address timely and critical issues impacting medical device manufacturers. While some topics leverage lessons learned during the pandemic, others remind us of concerns still relevant even though the pandemic has forced us to press pause on truly addressing them.

The event will also center around the world of outsourcing as a primary theme, just as the MPO Summit has done in the past.

Learn from our expert speaker line-up, ask questions, visit with sponsors, and gain as much information as possible from this year’s event.
