2016 NMEDA Annual Conference

February 17-19, 2016   |   Organized by: National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA)

Description

Date/Time: February 17 – 19, 2016

Location: Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center and Omni Hotel Dallas, Texas

Description: From the NMEDA CEO Dave Hubbard; Get ready for what could be our biggest conference ever! Capitalizing on what we learned at our last conference, the 2016 NMEDA conference shows signs of surpassing all the bench marks we broke this previous year. First, it is to be held in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, which is huge. NMEDA has over 200k square feet of exhibit space to fill and, even at this early stage in the game, it looks as though we will have more exhibitors than last year. The list of exhibitors will include manufacturers displaying the latest in mobility equipment and vehicle designs, as well as related industry services to enhance your business and increase profits. We've also invied a number of partner organizations, such as the Multiple Sclerosis Society, the ALS Association, the American Stroke Association and many more, to give you an opportunity to interact on a personal level and learn how your business can benefit from a relationship with their local chapters.

From a workshop standpoint, it's all about improving and growing your business. This year we welcome two outstanding keynote speakers to the conference. Award-winning author and mobile marketing expert, Gary Schwartz, will open the conference and Robin Crow will provide a rousing and entertaining finish. Our friend and outstanding sales expert, Paul Webb, will be back again in 2016 with an all new workshop. Larry Oxenham will present his highly sought-after assest protection workshop. Asset protection is an area that we all can benefit from, whether you own a business or the personal property.

One of the most exciting areas this year should be Government Relations. With a congressional bill in play on Capitol Hill that could help bring VA in line with a better way for selecting suppliers - plus all the legislative friends we've made this year (including some very influential congressional types) - the topic should provide a very lively and provocative workshop experience you're not going to want to miss. 

Speaking of things you won't want to miss: We're unveiling some new and exciting accomplishments coming out of the NMEDA Quality Assurance Program. NMEDA QAP is paving the way for us on Capitol Hill and beyond - and the benefits to you as participants in the program are bigger and better than ever. 

Think Big! Act Big!
