Product Exposure Opportunities - 3 programs

New Product Pavilion 
The most visited spot at Medtrade Spring is the New Product Pavilion. Last year, 98% of attendees walked through the pavilion! Attendees will vote on their favorite new product and three winners will be crowned. Just let your account executive know you're interested and they'll help get you signed up.  

Ideas in Caretail 
One thing Medtrade Spring attendees want to know about is RETAIL. Take advantage of this opportunity to promote your products that are well suited for retail sale and educate attendees on ideas to help their retail programs soar. The Ideas in Caretail area will focus on Point-of-Purchase displays—those created by exhibitors pre-stocked with product, or building and creating custom displays for house brands or small spaces. Learn more >>

Innovative HME Retail Product Awards
The biannual Innovative HME Retail Product Awards, sponsored by HomeCare magazine, honor HME products that are particularly suited for retail sale. The purpose of the competition is to promote and recognize products that contribute to providers' bottom lines through cash sales. View entry rules, entry form, and contract

So which one is best for you?
It all depends on what you have. If your product is new, hands down, the New Product Pavilion will get it the most exposure. The majority of attendees will walk through that area and look at the products. Attendees vote on favorites and winners receive awards and publicity. Products are also viewable online. If you have a great retail product, especially one that fits into our point-of-purchase of small space theme, display it in the Ideas in Retail center. Attendees interested in retail products will be excited to see this area on the floor, its debut at Medtrade Spring. You can also enter that retail product into the Innovative Retail Product Awards. The catch with it is that all entries are not viewed by attendees, but the winners will receive awards, publicity, and they can be viewed in a conference session. If your product is new and it's a retail product, you will get the most exposure by doing the New Product Pavilion and Ideas in Caretail. The cherry on top would be competing in Innovative Retail Awards and winning!

Using Social Media to Promote Your Medtrade Spring Presence

We are heavily promoting Medtrade Spring as an opportunity to unite our industry and stand together through the changes. One way to maximize the benefits of your investment as an exhibitor is to make an effort to promote your company's individual presence at the show. Most exhibitors use the same promoting tactics as each other, causing attendees to be unable to differentiate between companies. One way to stand out from the crowd, and make a lasting impression on the thousands of HME professionals expected to attend, is to use social media to promote your Medtrade Spring presence.

Two companies: Fairguide by Construct Data Verlag AG and Expo-Guide by Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV are targeting Medtrade exhibitors and using the Medtrade name without permission.

Both companies offer advertising space on their, using a form which resembles an organizer's free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form for an entry in an online directory. However, exhibitors who sign and return the form are then bound to a non-terminable agreement at significant cost for a period of at least three years and automatically renewing thereafter at the same cost, unless cancelled by registered letter within the appropriate period.

Please note that Medtrade has no relationship with Construct Data Verlag AG, Fair Guide, Expo-Guide, Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV or any of its many other brands, and they have no right to use Medtrade's show name and brand on information they send out to exhibitors.

If you receive a document from Construct Data Verlag AG or Expo-Guide by Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV which uses our name or the name of our events and which offers advertising space on the Fair Guide website, please do not sign the form unless you have carefully read and understood the terms contained in the small print.
