LAS VEGAS (March 4, 2015)—Medtrade Spring has a friendlier format this year, with the majority of sessions on Monday, March 30. The new format is specifically designed to minimize the overlap between expo floor time and valuable educational sessions. With this in mind, it makes sense to arrive in Las Vegas on Sunday, March 29, or even a day earlier on Saturday, March 28. Call it an excuse to have some fun in Las Vegas, before getting down to business.

Day one of Medtrade Spring, scheduled for March 30-April 1, is all about options.

Those who want in-depth understanding in a multihour setting can choose to attend any of three six-hour workshops, or one Fitter’s Course (all scheduled for 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. on Monday, March 30). Unlike previous Medtrade Springs, Monday will also have a full slate of one-hour and/or 90-minute educational sessions on tap.

"It makes a lot of sense this year for attendees to get into Las Vegas on Sunday, March 29, or sooner, to have a little more fun in Vegas, and to fully experience the packed day one at Medtrade Spring," says Kevin Gaffney, group show director, Medtrade. "If you want to do a six-hour workshop on Monday, or if you prefer a varied series of shorter educational sessions, you will have the options on Monday, March 30, day one of Medtrade Spring."

Most of Tuesday, and all of Wednesday, will be available to browse the Expo floor at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

General registration is open for Medtrade Spring, scheduled for March 30-April 1 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. For more information about the show, visit
