ATLANTA – The Innovative HME Retail Product Awards are back and looking for product submissions. Providers who know of a great retail product are encouraged to call up the manufacturers and urge them to enter. Deadline to enter is Friday, Oct 6. The Awards, now a tradition at Medtrade (sponsored by HomeCare Magazine), honor HME products that are suited for retail/caretail.
The purpose of the competition is to promote and recognize products that contribute to providers’ bottom lines though cash sales. All product entries must be manufactured by companies that are exhibiting at Medtrade. See list of exhibiting companies at www.medtrade.com
Products will be reviewed by judges and the top eight will advance to an onsite judging round. The top eight products will be presented in a Medtrade conference session, The Innovative HME Retail Product Awards, scheduled for Monday, Oct 23, 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. in Room C213 at the Georgia World Congress in Atlanta. Voting will take place at the session to determine the top three winners.
After the on-site Medtrade audience votes, organizers will determine the top three vote getters. Contact Kevin Gaffney, group show director, at (770) 291-5446 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about the awards.
