Provaré Technology Sponsors Medical Device Manufacturing Conference

Alpharetta, GA, March 5, 2008 — Over the past couple of days, Provaré Technology sponsored a medical device manufacturing conference at the Marriott Houston Intercontinental Hotel at George Bush Intercontinental Airport. The conference was arranged and presented by Q1 Productions, a Chicago-based company specializing in small, high-power, industry-specific conferences aimed at executives of small business. This was the first time Provaré had sponsored an event like this.

“Truthfully, we agreed to sponsor this conference as much to gain the experience as to make new contacts – perhaps even more so,” says Bill Tepper, CEO of Provaré Technology. “It was definitely worth the time and money.”

Attending the conference were 56 executives representing 44 medical device manufacturing companies. Provaré was one of six hand-picked sponsors, none of which had any significant overlap in their products or services. When asked why he felt that the experience had been worth the expense, Tepper said that he had “…learned a great deal about the day-to-day concerns of small life sciences companies that I don’t think we really understood before – or could have learned in any other way. The program itself was interesting in an academic sense, but we learned a lot more from the questions coming from the attendees. I have believed for a long time that we had a lot to offer this industry. This experience removed any lingering doubt. They are in desperate need of our help.”

When asked to elaborate, Tepper was hesitant to add any detail. But he did say that Provaré would be significantly expanding its efforts to reach out to the life sciences industry in the coming months.
Medical devices are among many types of products whose development, manufacture, distribution, and advertising are heavily regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This oversight presents a unique set of challenges to any company doing business in any of these industries. As a result, companies in life sciences are hesitant to trust consultants that cannot demonstrate proven success in such areas. While Provaré Technology’s client base is much broader than life sciences, it has certainly proven that it has the necessary knowledge and skills to serve this industry.
