Last week, you all received a request to respond to a survey via e-mail from Medtrade. They are asking for your thoughts about the show. Please find the time to respond because your input will help build Medtrade many notches higher.
I enjoy walking through the exhibition and meeting old friends and making new ones. Here are some of the comments I heard on the showroom floor this Spring in Las Vegas:
