Boston Show Review

This week, the Winco ID team was exhibiting at the Design & Manufacturing New England Show at the Boston Convention Center.

Actually the whole concept of this show is very confusing, with three different exhibitions thrown together somewhat randomly in one room.

Back in the heyday of electronics manufacturing in New England, this show was Nepcon, specifically for that industry. These days the biggest part is BIOMEDevice, intended for people in medical device manufacturing.

The Boston Convention Center has been open for a few years now and is a first class facility. It is easy for exhibitors to get their booths into and out of the hall so both setting up and breaking down the show was simple for us.

We found that our booth was pretty busy both of the days of the show and we had some great conversations with both existing and potential customers.

The focus of our display was on using labels, barcoding and RFID to bring business improvements to manufacturers. As well as our Winco labels, we had Zebra label, Photo ID and RFID printers to demo as well as our Microscan verifier for MIL-STD-130 applications.

With a lot of engineers and manufacturing people from the medical device industry around, we were not surprised to be talking a lot about the new Unique Device Identification (UDI) rule from the FDA and the GS1 barcode standards that will be used to enable this.

One of the features of the show is an area set around for short presentations on topics likely to be of interest to show attendees – they call them Innovation Briefs. We gave the closing presentation on how 2D barcoding can be efficiently used in manufacturing.

All things considered, this was an enjoyable and successful show. A big thank you to everyone that visited with us and also to the great Winco folks for making it work so well!
