Via Biomedical Wins Silver at 2013 Communicator Awards

By MVP Marketing + Design | June 1, 2013

Minneapolis, June 1, 2013 – MVP Marketing + Design, a Minneapolis-based digital marketing and communications firm serving clients coast to coast, is pleased to announce that it has won the Communicator Awards’ Silver Award of Distinction on behalf of the Via Biomedical Tradeshow Exhibit. Via Biomedical provides custom catheter design and development services for medical device manufacturers (OEMs) who have the product vision but lack the resources required to transform them into reality. The firm serves clients worldwide.

MVP’s show stopping design features eye-catching colors, prominent use of the Via Biomedical logo and integrated medical device illustration. Paul Kohls, Via Biomedical’s, head of sales and marketing, reported that the lightweight, portable exhibit, produced in cooperation with Skyline Display, was highly effective in provoking questions and interactions with the many medical device engineers who attended MD&M West, world’s largest medical OEM event.

Said Kohl’s “The staff at MVP was very professional and helpful during the earlier work on our website. I was especially impressed with the quality and diversity of ideas generated during our brainstorming sessions, which resulted in a booth that quickly expresses who and what we are. I would recommend MVP to anyone looking for fresh, new ideas.”

Added Dick Weinrib, MVP’s president, “Our involvement with Via Biomedical is representative of the great marketing and communications value we bring to small and mid-size medical device companies seeking expanded OEM opportunities in both US and global markets. The design firms that can win awards for web, print and tradeshow design simultaneously are really very few and far between. Viva Via Biomedical!”
