Five reasons not to miss Medtrade

Friday, August 24, 2012

ATLANTA – Medtrade Group Show Director Kevin Gaffney understands that HME providers are extremely busy people, that budgets are stressed, that cash flow is restricted and that time is at a very high premium. He gets that.

At the same time, Gaffney would like to make a pitch to everyone whose plans don’t include Medtrade this year, letting them know just what they’ll be missing:

Get face time with CMS

This year’s show includes events such as “Medicare Provider Enrollment 2012” at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 16. CMS deputy directors Mark Majestic and Zabeen Chong will provide an overview of Medicare provider enrollment strategies to improve the way providers view and interact with CMS, while maintaining the integrity and security of provider and supplier information.

Ask the attorneys

Good legal advice can be costly, and if you have been putting off following up on an issue, then Medtrade has a solution for you. Medtrade has teamed with the best legal minds in the industry to provide attendees with an opportunity to meet with experts one-on-one. Visit for updates and schedules.

Immerse yourself in retail

The growing case for a vibrant retail sales division will reach another milestone during this year’s Medtrade, with Nielsen Expositions allotting 4,500 square feet for a simulated Retail Design Center on the expo floor. Retail design education sessions will also be available through the conference, as well as in the Retail Design Center throughout the week.

Find new products

Medtrade will feature thousands of solutions and new products from more than 550 manufacturers, as well as countless networking opportunities. 

Stand Up For Homecare

The industry is at a crossroads, and it is more important than ever to fight for your industry. AAHomecare’s Stand Up for Homecare annual fundraiser, combined with the association’s Washington Update session, are great ways to build unity for the legislative fights ahead. Your united voice is all that stands between your patients and the destructive competitive bidding program. Come together, be heard, ask questions, and find out what is next on the legislative horizon. Medtrade’s timing is perfect to gather the industry and discuss the strategies to take advantage of the brief pre-election window of opportunity.
