AdvaMed to Sponsor OneMedPlace Finance Forum

Will Host Opening Night Reception for Medical Technology Executives and Investors January 12th in San Francisco

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 6, 2009) - OneMedPlace announced today that AdvaMed, the Advanced Medical Technology Association, will be a lead sponsor of the "OneMedForum" event in San Francisco on January 12-14 and anchor the opening reception on Tuesday, January 12th, at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel.

"We are pleased to play a role in OneMedForum this year," said Kenny Mendez, AdvaMed's Chief Administrative Officer. "At a time when the medical technology industry is under extraordinary pressure, bringing together those responsible for building the companies of the future has never been more important. The Forum can help educate both investors and companies on critical issues they will face in Healthcare Reform. We will use this opportunity to provide an update on legislation and healthcare reform to insure that America's emerging growth companies understand the implications and can play a role in the development of legislation."

"AdvaMed's involvement and support this year is particularly important as they are committed to ensuring that healthcare reform doesn't impede the engine of innovation," said Brett Johnson, President, OneMedPlace. "AdvaMed is a great resource and we hope to use their insights to help companies and investors better understand the road ahead."

"We have had a long relationship and have been impressed with the steady progress and quality of OneMedPlace and its programs to help medical technology companies," said Andrew Calhoun, Vice President for Membership Services at AdvaMed. "One of AdvaMed's key goals is to provide support to emerging companies to help them grow, including connecting with potential partners and sources of funding. The Finance Forum is a great venue for that."

The Finance Forum launched in 2008 and is held in the same week as the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference, which attracts a large contingency of the healthcare investment community to San Francisco each January. The OneMedForum provides a platform for emerging companies and smaller public companies to present to serious investors interested in learning about lesser-known companies and networking opportunities. More than 100 companies will be presenting and over 500 investors are expected to attend.
