Emerald Expositions, producer of Medtrade and Medtrade Spring, will start co-locating Environments for Aging Expo & Conference (EFA) with Medtrade Spring 2017.
Under the new arrangement, the events will take place side by side, from Feb. 27 to March 1, 2017, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
“There is a great deal of crossover appeal for attendees at both of these shows,” said Kevin Gaffney, group show director for Medtrade. “This agreement makes sense, and it will bring value to exhibitors and attendees at both shows. Anyone who attends this co-location next year will truly see the full scope of exciting products and services for our aging population.”
EFA focused on offering strategies for creating functional and attractive living environments that meet the needs of an aging population. The event includes a three-day learning experience, where attendees can network with peers and learn about the innovations in senior friendly design for long-term and residential care settings.
“The co-location allows attendees at both shows to be exposed to a variety of different products and ideas that will spark interest, and potentially lead to new business opportunities,” added Gaffney, who is also taking over group show director duties at EFA.
