August 18, 2014

LAS VEGAS – Those with good program ideas for Medtrade Spring 2015 are invited to share their experience and knowledge by submitting a proposal for Medtrade Spring’s Call for Presentations.

By submitting an abstract, speakers will help shape the educational conferences at Medtrade Spring 2015 and the future of the industry. If selected as a conference speaker, speakers will gain visibility in the HME industry and contribute to the advancement of the profession.

Members of the Educational Advisory Board (EAB) will evaluate all presentations based on the following criteria: timeliness of topic, overall content, audience interest, creativity, prior speaking expertise, knowledge of subject matter, prior speaker evaluation results, and speaker references.

“Thousands of providers count on the Medtrade events for their continuing education needs and this is an outstanding opportunity to help influence and educate the industry while gaining valuable exposure for you and your company,” says Kevin Gaffney, Medtrade Group Show Director.

Deadline for submissions is Aug 22, 2014. Selected speakers will be notified by Dec 1, 2014.
