Moving the HME Industry Forward


Medtrade Spring – Our Opportunity

February 24, 2014

LAS VEGAS – Above all, exhibitors and providers view Medtrade Spring as an opportunity to provide and find solutions. However, if you don’t go, you’ll never know.

“It’s our job to fashion the best possible show that we can,” says Kevin Gaffney, group show director, Medtrade. “But we can’t help if you’re not here. There’s still time to make your plans, get out of the office, and join us in Las Vegas.”

Exhibitors large and small are making the trip to the Spring version of the nation’s premiere HME event, scheduled for March 10-12 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Golden Technologies (Booth #319) is a familiar exhibitor at Medtrade Spring, largely because it’s a chance to meet with motivated providers.

“Golden Technologies has been exhibiting at Medtrade Spring for many years,” says Patricia O’Brien (pictured in photo on left at Medtrade 2013), director of Marketing and Merchandising for Old Forge, Pa-based Golden Technologies. “We believe it’s an important show, because only a small percentage of dealers who attend Medtrade in the Fall also attend Medtrade Spring in Las Vegas. This is our opportunity to get our team, products, and programs in front of the Western DME dealers who may not travel to Medtrade [Atlanta].”  

Kevin Trenga, director, North American Marketing, Domtar Personal Care, Greenville, NC, is making the cross country trip because he believes that his Attends product (Booth #443) can help providers achieve better outcomes, more satisfied customers, and improved profitability. “Attends can help dealers find new opportunities to diversify and increase profit while exceeding their customers’ expectations with incontinence products that fit properly, are highly absorbent, and help maintain healthy skin,” says Trenga. “Dealers choose Attends for Medicaid, managed care and private pay customers with needs that are unmet by traditional retail offerings.
