ODT Forum: What They’re Saying…

“This was my first time attending the ODT event but it will not be my last! The presentations, meet/greet, and catching up with old colleagues were terrific. I especially enjoyed learning about the medical device industry in Memphis! I have lived in Memphis for over 20 years but never realized the history of the medical device industry in Memphis before. The show was great and I highly recommend attending next year!”

—Greg Commer, Engineering Manager, Advanced Sourcing, Medtronic

“As a first time attendee, I was very pleased at the content I heard from well-known and ‘seasoned’ colleagues in the medical device industry. It was fantastic seeing and meeting new faces around the industry. The topics discussed did apply to my organization in its start-up phase.”

—Anthony Swoboda, VP Sales and Marketing, TruSpine Technologies PLC

“I really liked the ODT Forum I attended since it was so well organized and the speakers were terrific. I am only sorry more people from my company were not there to attend.”

—Rick Treharne, Vice President, Active Implants

“This past week’s ODT Forum in Memphis was excellent. Great attendance. Every seat was filled, and the speakers were excellent. Several people told me it was the best networking since before COVID.”

—Robin Young, Publisher, Orthopedics This Week

“I came out from the West Coast and really didn’t know what to expect. Now I understand why it is a must-go-to-meeting for anyone who makes decisions and solves problems in orthopedics and spine. It was uniquely focused and formatted for our industry and the payback was unmatched in terms of learning and networking—and I’ve been going to MD&M and AAOS for years. The speakers were all authoritative, the networking breaks allowed for thorough follow-up, and the presentations and Q&As were well-balanced between depth and variety. I enjoyed making new industry friends and meeting potential vendors. All-in-all, I now consider it a strategic resource.”

—William Pratt, VP Operations, Director of Creative Design, Kinamed Inc.

“The ODT Forum was extremely attended this year by both attendees and companies displaying products and services. There was not an empty seat in the house. The agenda addressed many of the key topics facing medical device companies today from supply chain issues and strategies, regulatory affairs, and the technology/market topics, with excellent and knowledgeable speakers and panelists. The ODT Forum provides a great venue for networking and gaining insights.”

—David C. Kelman, P.E., President, Kelman & Company Consulting

“The ODT Forum served as host of great peer-to-peer educational content. From the ‘State of Orthopedics’ discussion to the conversation ‘Addressing Critical Issues: An Orthopedic Device OEM Roundtable,’ it allowed us to engage in topics driving the orthopedic medical device manufacturing space. We also really enjoyed the opportunity to connect with other industry professionals.”

—Krista Ray, Global Digital Marketing Communications Manager, Teleflex Medical OEM

“The ODT forum is a one-of-a-kind industry event offering highly topical education sessions and excellent networking opportunities for all participants. Elos Medtech is thrilled to support the ODT Forum and welcome everyone to Memphis for this conference.”

—Jodie Gilmore, President of Orthopedics, Elos Medtech

“The ODT Forum is the best attended and highest quality medical device meeting I have ever attended in Memphis and at the Fed/Ex Institute of Technology! You guys are welcome back any time—well done!”

—Troy D. Drewry, Professor of Practice—The University of Mississippi; Operations Manager—Center for Diagnostics, Design, Devices, and Biomechanics, The University of Mississippi

“I found the ODT Forum meeting to be an incredibly productive day. Networking with both former and new contacts as well as participating in and listening to the various speakers and panel sessions provide a diverse learning experience. I will definitely be returning for the 2024 meeting.”

—David Sharp, VP of Global Marketing, Catalyst Orthopedics
