Medtech Conference Postponed

In light of evolving updates and concerns around the coronavirus, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the Medtech Conference until spring of 2021. Postponing provides us the opportunity to deliver the quality event that you expect from CHI, and a safe environment for our attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and staff.

The Medtech Conference has always represented an invaluable opportunity to bring this ecosystem together and advance the field. We are so disappointed to have to make this call, but feel it is the best way to move forward. We are actively working with local venues to find alternative dates, and will be reaching out to event speakers, sponsors and attendees once we know more.
