The Competition Deadlines Are Approaching…

Have you participated in the design, engineering, manufacture, or distribution of an outstanding medical device, diagnostic or medical packaging product, or packaging system for a medical product? Something you just know is better than anything else out there, something that deserves recognition?
If so, you should enter it in the 14th annual Medical Design Excellence Awards competition today. Winning products enjoy recognition for their achievements, increased visibility in the industry, promotional and marketing opportunities, and potential coverage in leading trade, business, and consumer publications.
Although entries are most often submitted by manufacturers, firms that provide materials, components, or other services may submit an entry on behalf of a product manufacturer with that manufacturer’s written consent.

Benefits of Winning
All winning entries will be displayed at the 2011 Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East trade event in New York, and covered in industry-leading family of publications like MD+DI (Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry), Medical Product Manufacturing News, IVD Technology, European Medical Device Technology, MX, and Pharmaceutical & Medical Packaging News.

The program is open worldwide to companies and individuals involved in the design, engineering, manufacture, or distribution of finished medical devices or medical packaging. For the 2011 competition, all entered products must be commercially available (able to be ordered or purchased) by December 31, 2010. Such availability is not limited to products approved for marketing in the United States. Because the competition is open to the medical device industry worldwide, products commercially available in any country are eligible.
