New Speakers, New Session Topics Added to This Year’s Agenda


(Chicago, IL) – For the second consecutive year, Q1 Productions will be hosting the Medical Device Product Development and Management Conference, offering attendees an opportunity to obtain the most recent and valuable industry information and network with fellow healthcare professionals.  Best practices and latest trends in product development will be discussed at length among VP and Director level product managers.


This year, the conference will dive into the product development and management controls to enhance product development channels and attendees will hear directly from product management executives on their implementations for success.  By popular request from last year’s conference attendees, a larger mix of speakers from the technology, regulatory and product management spaces will be on hand to provide a broader insight to the industry’s latest endeavors.  Ashley Wallin of Advamed, Eric Hill of Cardinal Health, and Tom Still of the Wisconsin Technology Council are among the two dozen distinguished presenters for the two-day conference, leading sessions and panel discussions that are most top-of-mind to industry professionals.


New this year, an in-depth panel discussion will be conducted to address regulatory initiatives by the FDA, EU and IEC.   Presenters Eric Hargan of Greenberg Traurig LLP, Sonali P. Gunawardhana of Wiley Rein LLP, and Todd Moorman of BSI Group will review regulatory submission 510K to PMA, break down changing medical device directives in Europe and uncover IEC Third Edition Requirements.
