Canon to launch DesignMed events

By Published on .

Los Angeles—Continuing its aggressive pursuit of growth, Canon Communications announced that it will introduce three DesignMed events this year.

Electronics Design News (EDN), which Canon acquired this month along with Design News, Packaging Digest and Test & Measurement World, will sponsor the events.

The DesignMed series will be co-located with Canon’s Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) shows in the U.S. and MEDTEC shows elsewhere around the world.

“In the wake of a changing electronics industry landscape, medical is now a focus for leading suppliers; and medical electronic device designers are going to really benefit,” Kevin O’Keefe, senior VP of Canon’s events division, said in a statement.

Canon CEO Charles McCurdy said in a statement: “It is gratifying that our acquisition of EDN could be instrumental in bringing global electronics suppliers—the publication’s advertisers—together with Canon’s worldwide medical manufacturing audience.”
