Medtrade Preps for Launch

October 15, 2017

ATLANTA – Medtrade is just one week away, and much like last year, workshops and educational sessions will kick off the show on day one (Monday, Oct 23). Opening day is an excellent opportunity to experience multi-hour, in-depth learning—or shorter educational sessions.

Workshops may be added to an expo pass or a conference pass, and additional registration is required. Fees vary per workshop. The following multi-hour workshops will be offered:

• An Introduction to the Certified Durable Medical Equipment Specialist (CDME)
• VGM’s Breaking Bad 2017 Reimbursement Seminar
• HME Master Sales Training (with Mike Sperduti [pictured])
• Brightree Summit (register directly with Brightree at, not a Medtrade event)

Networking Event
The Audit “Happy” Hour *Separate Registration Required*
• Room: C201
Monday, Oct 23 • 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. We’re making it fun by giving you that opportunity, and a chance to meet with experts at a relaxed networking reception. 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. Registration fee varies with time of registration (save by registering early!), advance registration required.

Medtrade – Day Two

ATLANTA – The middle day at Medtrade (Tuesday, Oct 24) is quite simply—packed. The Show kicks off at 8:00 a.m. with the AAHomecare Washington Update and Power Panel, concluding at 9:45 a.m. After that, the Expo Floor reveals its countless products at 10:00 a.m. sharp, staying open this year until 5:00 p.m.

“We do have educational sessions on Tuesday [day two] but they don’t start until 2:15 p.m.,” says Kevin Gaffney, group show director, Medtrade. “That’s a good four hours with no conflicts, just a pure opportunity to immerse yourself in the products that can help you expand your business.”

After the show floor closes, consider attending the Stand Up for Homecare Fundraising Event, which starts at 5:30 p.m. and takes place at the Skylounge at the Glenn Hotel.

Medtrade – Don’t Miss Last Day

ATLANTA – Thinking of passing up the final day at Medtrade? Show organizers have $5,000 reasons you should reconsider. “The last educational session ends at 3:45 p.m.,” says Kevin Gaffney. “After that, attendees can head to an end-of-show reception [sponsored by AAHomecare and PPM Fulfillment] with a chance to win $5,000, plus a few other prizes.”  Click HERE for more info about the final day.
