There will be so many things going on at Medtrade this year! I want to be sure you do not miss any of it. This is where you can meet with the many associations and people who are leading the fight versus the competitive bidding and the other onerous legislations.
At Medtrade, the American Association for Homecare (AAHomecare) holds its annual major fund-raising event, “Stand Up for Homecare.” Please attend it! The doors will open Tuesday, October 25 (5:30 PM to 7:00 PM), in the Maple Point Room at the Georgia World Congress. A modest check to support their efforts will gain you admission. Here, you will be able to network with all of the industry players while enjoying food and drink. Please add this to your activity list.
MK Battery will host its “Power for Funding” event. Proceeds from the event will go to NRRTS, AAHomecare and NCART. This year, MK Battery will be celebrating the company’s 25th year as a Medtrade exhibitor. This event will also be held Tuesday, at the Omni Hotel, from 5:30 PM until 8:30 PM. So you see, you can do both this and AAHomecare.
Walking on the show room floor will use up a great deal of energy. From 1:00 PM until 5:00 PM, please stop by the Medtrade Mixer, sponsored by Infopia USA for cool refreshment. Expo sponsors will give you a complimentary ticket or you can purchase one for a libation.
Thursday (10/27) has been set aside to be the Medtrade “Consumer Advocacy Day.” Here is where you can learn how to educate all your customers of the role you play as well as that of our industry.
What a show! There are so many activities scheduled for Medtrade this year. I have touched only on a few. The seminars, the manufacturer displays, the Accessible Home and Retail Design Center, Competitive Bidding Central and the New Product Pavilion are some of things there for you. Please come prepared for a good few days of work, education and new ideas to continue the growth and profitability of your company.
