HCB News: For healthcare professionals who aren't sure if they should be attending, what kind of questions should they ask themselves?
For those that are unsure if they should attend this year, they have to feel comfortable knowing how to interact with other visitors and exhibitors. They should be familiar with whether they need to wear a mask, and how to keep social distancing while still taking advantage of the opportunities to interact and demo the products and solutions our global exhibitors will be showcasing at the show. Healthcare professionals need to also ask themselves if the type of products that are looking to acquire for the facilities or for their distribution businesses will be available at FIME, to make it worth their while to attend. We have products in more than 10 umbrella categories, such as consumables, orthopedics, imaging, IVD, home equipment and more.
HCB News: For first time attendees, what advice would you offer to make sure they make the most of their time?
Plan ahead and take advantage of the networking and educational opportunities available via FIME Online starting August 2. We will have access to all exhibitors and their products through our online platform and through the event app, where attendees can meet, engage and do business with our exhibitors in advance of the live show. We will also have free online trade and specialty content available to view from the comfort of your home or office. This will give first-time attendees a good feel for what the live show can offer. Follow us on social media #FIMEShow to get the latest updates and guidelines for the live show, like what to expect for registration, options for PCR testing and vaccinations, as well as more information on our free-to-attend live conferences on innovation, trade, supply chain management and sterilization techniques.
HCB News: What will the program at this year’s event look like? Are there any key highlights you would like to share?
A lot of the key highlights have been mentioned, but we definitely want our audience to look forward to and take advantage of the online program starting on August 2. This is new for 2021, and we are hoping to expand this feature and related options for 2022.
