Exhibitor Sign-Ups Showing Positive Trend For Medtrade 2023
With the final Medtrade East wrapping up in October 2022, a new era for the nation’s largest HME-focused trade show is set to begin. The first newly unified show is scheduled for March 28-30, 2023 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas.
Exhibitor and attendee feedback contributed greatly to the new one-show format, as well as the choice to move the show to Dallas. Several companies have responded to the positive changes, with York Schwab, show director, reporting renewed enthusiasm among existing exhibitors, as well as a few companies interested in coming back to the show.
“The current level of demand for booth space is something I have not experienced in my time with the show,” Schwab says. “Medtrade 2023 is already larger than Medtrade East 2022 in Atlanta, and we are still months away from the Dallas show.”
Schwab predicts a vibrant Expo Hall with exhibitors eager to show off their wares. Demand recently exceeded available space, which warranted some changes on the floor. “We had to move the New Product Pavilion to the entry hall due to booth demand,” he says. “Needless to say, we are very excited. Attendance is tracking exceptionally well, although it is still early.”
As a reminder, the 2023 show will simply be called “Medtrade” and will not include additional modifiers that deal with regions or seasons. The three-day show is designed to pack a lot of information and products into a cozy timeframe. “Time is money and we believe three days offer tremendous value for people who are looking to get out of the office, but not for too long,” Schwab adds. Schwab. “Early rates amount to an amazing deal, but prospective attendees should act fairly fast to take advantage.”
