WATERFORD TOWNSHIP – Medical Main Street’s INNO-VENTION 2014 conference is set for Oct. 21- 22.
Now in its third year, the conference 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.
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.”

The event features 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.
