Meeting and networking opportunities are the main reason attendees and exhibitors participate in the Fall Convention and EMDA strives to provide the most effective structured means to enable such interaction. But, while Business Program registrants are filling their time with manufacturer and supplier interviews, spouse/guest registrants can take part in the numerous social events.
