Moving the HME Industry Forward

General Healthcare

One Month Until Medtrade

September 28, 2015

ATLANTA – It’s only 27 days until the nation’s premiere HME event kicks off at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Hundreds of exhibitors and industry experts are making their plans, and there is still time to register and save money over day-of-the-show rates.

Despite the threat of a competitive bidding “rural rollout” next year, unity continues to build in 2015. Much of that cohesiveness has been sparked by a reinvigorated AAHomecare, member service organizations, and state associations that are seeing an uptick in participation.  

Medtrade is the natural focal point for an industry that is poised to fight back and make its value known to the healthcare community.

“It’s time for unity,” enthused John Gallagher, VP, Government Relations, VGM & Associates, in the Sept 14 issue of Medtrade Monday. “It’s time to rally around Medtrade as an antidote to these challenging times.

For those still pondering attendance, Medtrade is a three-pronged trade show with educational sessions, a huge show floor with hundreds of exhibitors, and networking events where attendees 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.

Networking events include:
The Audit “Happy” Hour – New for Medtrade
Sponsored by: ACU-Serve; the van Halem Group; and Pride Mobility
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.
