Call for Speakers

Deadline: Friday, July 5

Medtrade, in collaboration with the Educational Advisory Board (EAB), has now opened its Call for Speakers for the 2025 Medtrade Conference that will be held February 18-20, 2025, in Dallas, TX. The Submissions form will remain open until Friday, July 5.

Medtrade, the largest home medical equipment trade show and conference in the US, has been connecting the HME industry since 1979, originally launched as the National Home Healthcare Exhibition.

The Medtrade educational program covers a wide range of topics, from innovations to products and daily operations for the home medical equipment, complex rehabilitation industry, and manufacturer partners. Our 2025 Conference tracks are:

  • Audits & Compliance
  • Operations & Innovations
  • Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) & Mobility
  • Legislative, Regulatory, Legal
  • Managed Care
  • Product Categories
  • Sales & Marketing

    Within each track are four specially curated session topics. These topics were created by the Medtrade Educational Advisory Board members to be used as both a guide and direction for your submissions. We invite you to submit your proposals on the topics outlined within each track, as well as any other subjects you believe would be relevant and valuable to the Medtrade audience. We seek presentations that are informative, engaging, and practical. Please note, our EAB members are looking for at least two advanced learning sessions per track.

    More about our 2025 Conference Tracks and Topics to help you build your proposal can be found here.
