Elon will be one of the distinguished speakers at the 3rd Semi-Annual Medical Device Packaging: Innovations In Design and Testing Conference.


Why is the 3rd Semi-Annual Medical Device Packaging Conference important to packaging executives?
Attending conferences such as this is critical for packaging executives to keep up to date on latest technologies and benchmark with others in the same field. It also provides countless opportunities to network and get a specific insight to how others are handling new FDA requirements.


Are there any sessions or topics you’re looking forward to discussing at the September conference?
I’m really looking forward to UDI as this is the hottest topic on the market, and I am not saying this because I am a presenter on UDI. But this will give  us an opportunity to have a dialogue on how companies interpret the FDA UDI final rule.


What do you hope attendees will take away from your session?  
I hope attendees come with an open mind, great ideas, and participate in dialogue in order to come back with knowledge that will help them be successful in their careers.


What initiatives are on the horizon for your team in 2016?
UDI all the time for thousands of our products.
