The annual Medtrade conference and exposition, which will be November 3-5 in New Orleans, will charge participants a fee this year for the first time. For people who register before Sept. 3, the fee will be $99. After that, participants will pay $149.
Medtrade officials say the newly implemented fee for the conference will include the program books, which were previously sold at the meeting, and all the focus sessions, which previously each had a separate charge. In addition, the tapes of the sessions, which at previous meetings were $9 each, now will be $10 for three tapes.
Medtrade officials say their intent with the new fee is to make the annual meeting cost effective for the attendee and to possibly make things easier for the speakers. Officials urge people to register ahead of time, both to save $50 and to avoid standing in lines at the event.
Also, on Nov. 2, there will be a home healthcare executive forum, costing $195, which replaces the managed care conference. For more information, call (877) 835-7232.
