Waterford, Michigan -- Medical Main Street’s INNO-VENTION 2014 conference is set for Oct. 21- 22.
 
INNO-VENTION 2014, now in its third year, will feature an expansion of the overwhelmingly popular Demonstration Alley, with companies exhibiting the latest medical technology innovations. Also expanding will be one-on-one meetings, where attendees can schedule face-to-face meetings with purchasing agents from major health care providers. The event location is being finalized and will be released soon.
 
“Each year INNO-VENTION has gotten bigger as Medical Main Street’s influence extends its global reach,” Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson said. “Oakland County and the region have created some of the world’s most advanced technologies. I expect this year’s event will be the best we’ve ever had.”
 
INNO-VENTION 2013 attracted more than 600 health professionals, clinicians, investors and suppliers. A global audience of more than 95,000 people was reached through social media in the United States, Europe, Asia and Canada.
 
Returning from last year will be a networking reception on Oct. 21, the popular Commercialization Competition, INNOVATOR of the Year Award and luncheon, and concurrent industry break-out sessions on Oct. 22.
 
In 2008, Patterson created Medical Main Street with the area's leaders in health care, research and development, education and industry.
 
The Medical Main Street board includes Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, Beaumont Health System, Beckman Coulter Molecular Diagnostics, Crittenton Hospital, DMC Huron Valley Hospital, Ferndale Laboratories, Henry Ford Health Systems, Housey Pharmaceuticals, McLaren Health Care, MichBio, State Rep. Gail Haines, R-Waterford, Oakland Community College, Oakland University, Oxus Inc., Rockwell Medical Technologies, St. John Providence Health System and St. Joseph Mercy Oakland.
