Leveling up on innovation letters 



MEDP's 2018 Annual Event and Awards Ceremony

We're not just Innovating...
We're Evolving to the Next Level.

William T. Newby Gif

MEDP's Annual Event and Awards Ceremony is an opportunity for our guild (our partners, investors, local manufacturers, city and state government officials and business leaders) to join our campaign on a quest to level up our innovation. Along with the City of McMinnville's new strategic plan, Mac-Town 2032, MEDP's game plan is focused on innovation, evolution, and drawing inspiration from McMinnville's rich origin story. The truth is, innovation is in McMinnville's DNA, and we're excited to see what comes next. Come power up with us as we take innovation to the next level.
