Many of UBM Canon's shows allow exhibitors to take advantage of an expanded audience via a unique co-location strategy, which places several different, industry-relevant, shows at the same venue. Among those shows effectively using this strategy are MD&M East (New York) and West (California), the world's largest trade events for companies seeking medical products and services.
