Welcome to the agenda for the 2013 MassDevice Big 100 West. All the pertinent event information logistics and updates will be hosted here.

If this is your first event, please take note that our program is rather unique. Our program is split into three portions.

First, we have educational sessions from 4:00-5:30. We call these our "Sparking the Conversation" sessions. These are generally panel discussions on hot button issues that med tech companies are facing, featuring executives and experts in each particular discipline. These sessions are concurrent, so you’ll have to pick one.

Second, we have a networking mixer with food and drinks so you can connect and re-connect with friends in the industry.

Finally, we have our main event featuring our CEO interviews. On December 10th we’ll hear from Dr. Robert Greenberg on the amazing rise of the "bionic eye," followed by a fascinating panel on the future of chronic diseases featuring C-level executives from ResMed, St. Jude Medical and Glooko. You can find information below on all those panels.

That’s all we have for now. Please make sure to reach out to the people you want to connect with and, as always, you can contact me with any questions.
