Wednesday, December 19, 2018

ATLANTA – Medtrade Group Show Director Kevin Gaffney’s role will expand to include vice president duties. Gaffney has planned and executed more than 35 trade shows in a career spanning 25 years. In addition to Medtrade and Medtrade Spring, he is also group show director for four other shows: Environments for Aging; Construction SuperConference; HealthCare Design; and Hospitality Design. “People thought the Internet would kill trade shows, but it’s really made them more important than ever,” says Gaffney. “Social media and technology offer great ways to connect with people remotely and virtually, but people do business with people they know and like. You really can’t get to know somebody unless you spend time with that person, preferably in person.”
