Attend for Inspiration and New Strategic Partners

One 10x alumnus put it,
“As a manufacturer, I got the most from the conference through exposure to things I don’t consider every day. The discussions showed me trends I’ve missed. I saw new possibilities for my business.”

Alumni Testimonials

As a smaller medical device manufacturer, I can absolutely say 10x was more than worth the cost of admission.

We are currently working with two companies I met at 10x.

Rick-GeraceRick Gerace, BioBack

One of the best conferences in my 32 years of conferences.

Burt Houtz, FloCyte Associates

Rob Packard

What makes 10x successful? The intimacy of the program. It’s easy to meet people for great conversations and possible future synergies.

Chris Rofidal, Oracle

Joe, you have something unique here: Broad topical diversity, networking, and new perspectives.

Michael KohlmanMichael Kohlman, Appolis

I met patent attorneys from Europe and folks that deal with FDA. It’s basically free consultation for me.

Steve Bixby, MorTan

I took 10 pages of notes each day!

One of the best conferences I’ve ever been to in any industry.

Ross Bundy, Nanomedical Diagnostics

Joe, your personal outreach to the participants during the conference was particularly commendable!

Abhilasha Munshi, Ma Foi Analytics

Jorge Ochoa

The content was terrific with informative and inspiring speakers, but the networking was even better. I met several new collaborators and have multiple new client engagements as a direct result of the conference networking.

Beth Brooks Decision DriverBeth Brooks , Decision Driver Analytics

Simply put – if you’re looking for a broad based and dynamic discussion on the latest innovations and trends in the medical device industry, attend the 10x conference.

I received two excellent job offers through networking at the 10x conference!!

Worth the long travelling from Europe.
