In just a few short week’s over 80 companies from around the world will come Kosciusko County to attend the annual OrthoTec Conference & Exhibition at the Orthopaedic Capital Center (OCC) at Grace College in Winona Lake. OrthoTec chose Kosciusko County as its location for this manufacturing industry’s resource for world-class education and cutting edge technologies.
Because of the concentration of orthopedic companies in this geographic area, exhibiting businesses come to make powerful industry connections. During the two-day event, exhibitors and registered attendees attended back-to-back conference sessions to obtain the latest knowledge and advanced technologies for every aspect of orthopaedics design and manufacturing. Event highlights include opening remarks from Warsaw’s Mayor, Dr. Joe Thallemer, as well as keynote addresses from Michael J. Kaplan, MD, Chief Medical Correspondent for ESPN; Nick Deeter, Founder, Chairman of the Board and Managing Director, OrthoPediatrics. The redesigned conference program will cover FDA Detroit District updates, 510(k) updates, MoM hip replacement issues, newly proposed Unique Device Identifier rule, Asian supply chain management, sports medicine, biologics and tissue engineering, and more.
Among the exhibitors, which included four industry manufacturers, Kosciusko County also had a collaborative presence at the entrance of the exhibit. With the help of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC); Kosciusko Economic Development Corporation; Ivy Tech Community College; Grace College, Trine University; Kosciusko County Convention & Visitors Bureau; and Warsaw/Kosciusko County Chamber of Commerce, the county welcomed each visitor and provided valuable information about industry, education, life, and opportunities in the county.
