Those of you headed to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Annual Meeting are likely finalizing your schedule—whom to meet, what to learn. As you consider your priorities, keep in mind that the conference continues to attract exhibiting supplier and service providers. Not only will your surgeon customers be attending, but so will many of your current and potential commercialization partners.
Our experiences have taught us that the Annual Meeting is a prime place to conduct conversations with both sets of customers, as well as establish important dialogues to meet the year’s directives.
Below, we provide an abbreviated list of exhibitors by main capability to assist you in identifying the types of suppliers you may want to meet in San Diego, as you consider your product development initiatives for 2017. The majority of companies listed specialize in implant and/or instrument manufacturing and surface preparation/treatment. Each company’s name is linked to its profile in the BONEZONE directory, allowing you fast access to their orthopaedic offerings.
The Annual Meeting is only three days long. With nearly 650 exhibitors and 15,000 surgeons, there isn’t time for every conversation. In case you miss them at AAOS, look for the asterisk*: that denotes companies exhibiting at OMTEC® in June.
