HME Voice – The Insider’s Guide to Medtrade

October 5, 2015

ATLANTA – Powered by Medtrade Radio and sponsored by Emerge Sales, HME Voice is back with its Insider’s Guide to Medtrade.

In this month’s episode, Mike Sperduti, founder of the Mike Sperduti Companies, East Northport, NY, chats with Kevin Gaffney, group show director, Medtrade, and Anna McDevitt (pictured), founder of Laboratory Tactical Consulting.

Listen to the episode anytime by clicking below.

For those who are already planning on attending Medtrade, scheduled for Oct 26-29, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, McDevitt offered several specific (and general) suggestions during a free-flowing conversation. When it comes to networking events that you may have ignored in the past: “Give yourself a bit of flexibility,” says McDevitt, a member of the Medtrade educational advisory board. “Say ‘yes’ to stuff!”

“You want to make sure you maximize the things that are most important to you,” adds Gaffney. “Folks are going to want to come in on Sunday night…and stay to the end.”

McDevitt and Gaffney (pictured, left) describe this year’s networking events as the perfect places to meet old friends, make new ones, and collect valuable knowledge. For example, the Audit Happy Hour costs only $30, which includes an open bar and experts who are ready and willing to answer questions. The Audit Happy Hour is sponsored by: ACU-Serve; Mediware; Pride Mobility; and The van Halem Group. The networking events below are still open for a limited number of additional spots. 

The Audit “Happy” Hour – New for Medtrade

Oct 26 • 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
There’s not much happiness when it comes to audits – unless you’re figuring out how to navigate them. The networking reception that made its debut at Medtrade Spring is back. It was standing room only in Las Vegas, with people staying well beyond the allotted hour. So grab a glass of wine or beer (audits do drive us to drink, right?!), and meet with audit experts at this unique Q&A and networking opportunity.
