SHERMAN OAKS, CA – This year’s Medtrade definitely felt different, and the difference was mainly in the attendees.
Those who were there had business to conduct and seminars and networking events to attend. They were there to learn new ways of running their businesses.
The attendees were focused, serious, and ready for change. They recognized the need for change was now. They were positive, eager, and ready to gather materials for their next big business move.
If anything, it felt like a fresh new show for those who were sincerely interested in making an indelible mark on their businesses.
Moreover, the caliber of the Medtrade attendee was high, and most of the people there were looking for solutions. Those are the people who will likely prosper in the coming year.
I believe that those serious-minded individuals representing thousands of hungry HME providers nationwide will be/remain the leading HME companies next year and for years to come.
Ultimately, Medtrade 2013 was a pivotal show, and one that I was proud to participate in as a speaker and collaborator. Thanks for all of the idea sharing. I can’t wait for more of the same at Medtrade Spring in Las Vegas, scheduled for March 10-12 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
