DeviceTalks Boston 2018: Bigger and better than ever!

Join us Oct. 8-10 for the 7th annual DeviceTalks Boston, back in the city where it all began.

This year we’ll get an inside look at the turnaround at Hologic from CEO Steve MacMillan. Our keynote presentation will feature an in-depth discussion about MacMillan’s long career in medtech and how he approached taking the reins at the women’s health company. In addition, we’ll feature keynote talks and interviews with Google’s Heidi Dohse; serial entrepreneur and scientist Jeff Karp; and Gray Matter Founder, President & CEO Sheila Talton.

And we’re delighted to announce that MassMEDIC will host its MedTech Showcase at DeviceTalks Boston Oct. 10, featuring 20 exciting startups from the Bay State’s thriving medical device cluster. For nearly 20 years, this showcase has helped launched some of the most exciting companies in the Bay State and beyond.


This year’s DeviceTalks Boston will feature three tracks packed with expertly curated content, created by our industry for our industry. The ECO-SYSTEM track will focus on issues confronting medtech companies across Boston and beyond; the TECHNOLOGY track will drill down into the hottest new tech that’s changing medtech. And the INVESTMENT track will highlight issues for emerging medtech companies seeking investment for growth.


Whether you’re looking to showcase your technology on our exhibit floor or host a panel with your companies thought leaders, DeviceTalks has a program for you.
