Moving the HME Industry Forward

General Healthcare

One Month and Counting

February 10, 2014

LAS VEGAS – Medtrade Spring is just 28 days away, and recent changes are designed to create an even more focused show. Educational advisory board (EAB) members from around the country have helped to shape Medtrade Spring, scheduled for March 10-12 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

Part of the renewed focus is reflected in a new streamlined schedule, with the show beginning on Monday and ending Wednesday—instead of the traditional Thursday. “We felt it was important to provide dealers with the best and most relevant education opportunities while focusing the expo to two action packed days,” explains Kevin Gaffney, group show director, Medtrade.

Unlike last year, the Power Lunch at Medtrade Spring, sponsored by The VGM Group, and scheduled for Tuesday, March 11, from 11:45 a.m. – 1:15 p.m, will not rotate topics. Instead, attendees will choose one topic during the registration process, and stay on that topic for the entire 90 minutes. Produced in cooperation with Capital Healthcare Group, the Power Lunch features topics crucial to help businesses survive and thrive. Click Here for more on the Power Lunch.

On Monday, March 10, attendees have a special opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge about topics that merit extra time. “Brightree’s workshop at Medtrade Spring teaches HME professionals how to streamline their business processes, and dramatically increase the efficiency and accuracy of the billing process to grow their business,” says Lori Drayer, marketing events manager, Brightree LLC (Booth #1018). “Through detailed discussions and problem-solving scenarios, our highly trained professionals can help you create efficiencies and discover new revenue opportunities.”

Attendees can choose from four in-depth workshops in an effort to start the conference on an education-packed note. The following workshops all take place on Monday, March 10.
