Something for everyone

Wednesday, April 30, 2003

This year’s Medtrade Spring show will include 60 educational seminars that cover the basics with the intent to provide some value for every person from an HME company who attends the event. That’s to be expected. But this year there’s an educational componet for manufacturers and distribututors, too.

The first Medtrade Spring Manufacturers/Distributors Forum will take place on May 6, 2003 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nev. Sponsored by the Health Industry Representatives Association and HME News. The program is designed to provide manufacturers and distributors with the information they need to succeed during these challenging times.

- 11:00-12:30 Regulatory Compliance 101: How to Get Your Product Successfully into the Marketplace by James (Randy) Veale, vice president, regulatory services, Medical Device Consultants, Inc. North Atteboro, Mass.
