ATLANTA – Those who are looking to pay less for Medtrade should take note: The last day to capitalize on early rates is Friday, Sept 12.

Medtrade is scheduled for Oct 20-23, 2014, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. “Early rates are $25 for expo and $99 for conference, for a savings of $75 and $201,” says Kevin Gaffney, group show director, Medtrade.

If you have not been to Medtrade, you are literally missing an opportunity to fundamentally change your business. The last time Diana Guth, RRT, went to Medtrade, the owner of Los Angeles-based Home Respiratory Care found a product that helped her generate valuable new revenue.

As an HME veteran, Guth goes to Medtrade to identify new products that help her stay above water in a challenging reimbursement environment.

“At the last Medtrade,” she says. “I did find something excellent outside of competitive bidding, but I won’t say what it is [laughs] because I don’t want anyone else selling it. If you don’t go to Medtrade, you can’t find these products.”

HME providers looking for the latest products, ideas, and inspiration will be joining Guth at this year’s Medtrade, scheduled for Oct 20-23, 2014, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

“Medtrade is the absolute best place to find solutions in this tough new HME world,” adds Jim Greatorex, owner, Black Bear Medical, Portland, Me. “Where else can you find new and alternative product offerings to off-set lost revenue, plus get the opportunity to see and hear from great speakers? We all need solutions right now. Atlanta in October is where the best answers can be found.”

Many new products will once again by vying for the Innovative HME Retail Product Awards, sponsored by HomeCare Magazine, and designed to honor HME products that are particularly suited for retail sale.

The purpose of the competition to promote and recognize products that contribute to providers’ bottom lines though cash sales. Attendees at this year’s Medtrade can view the winners, and all entries, in a special section of the New Product Pavilion on the Expo floor at the Georgia World Congress Center.
