Medtrade Spring Kicks Off in Las Vegas

February 29, 2016

LAS VEGAS – Providers from around the country are making their way to the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas for day one of Medtrade Spring, the Spring version of the nation’s premiere HME-focused trade show.

For those looking to make a road trip, it’s not too late to experience the show floor on Tuesday and Wednesday. Walk-up registration is available for:
• show floor only;
• show floor + educational sessions; and
• networking events (limited seats).

“If you are already registered and arriving to pick up your badge, ask about available seats at the four networking events—Audit Happy Hour; Power Lunch; AAHomecare’s Stand Up for Homecare Reception; and 4) The HME Breakfast Club,” says Kevin Gaffney, group show director, Medtrade Spring. “These networking events are a great way to maximize the benefit of your trade show experience.”

Boost Your Caretailing IQ
LAS VEGAS – Ideas in Caretail, sponsored by VGM Retail Services and KC Store Fixtures, is an area designed to show how successful healthcare retailers care about their patients. That kind of caring demands a new term—one that combines care and retail.

Ideas in Caretail: Point-of-Purchase & Small Spaces, will showcase point-of-purchase (POP) displays that are either vendor supplied, or racks that providers can fill with their choice of products to create a custom POP display. All displays will be provided by KC Store Fixtures.

These options are also great for businesses that lack retail space but can benefit by adding a product line or creating a display with complementary products. Learn what display options are available for the retail environment by visiting Ideas in Caretail.
