DULUTH, Minn. – The Midwest Association for Medical Equipment Services has announced its 2020 Midwest Conference & Exhibit Hall will take place virtually Oct. 6-9. “The surging numbers of COVID-19 and the current social distancing and safety guidelines now in place preclude us from holding this event in a live setting,” said Rose Schafhauser, executive director. The event will include management and staff level training spread out over the course of four days, with rotating morning and afternoon sessions. It will also include a virtual exhibit hall. “We are very excited to be bringing a virtual exhibit hall to this event,” Schafhauser said. “Our exhibit halls are known for their lively, interactive and fun atmosphere and we look forward to providing this same valuable time for our vendors and attendees to our virtual event.” Registration for the event will open in mid-August with a new format featuring a single fee per company and unlimited attendees.
