CDS Meetings & Events
The televised Live Patient Demonstrations programming is being expanded for the 2014 MWM. Attendees can see the daily demonstrations in a theater constructed on the east side of the Exhibit Hall, near the Starbucks entrance to the hall. Details are available in the course descriptions section for each day’s program.
Continuing in 2014, in addition to the stellar scientific program offered during the meeting, CDS knows that attendees can obtain valuable education as well by visiting the exhibitors. Therefore, CDS continues to offer 1 CE credit per day when you visit the Exhibit Hall.
Signage posted in the Exhibit Hall (near the Overlook Cafe) provides the CE Code. The CE Code will not be active until 3 hours after the exhibit floor opens each day. When completing your CE Verification form, just enter that CE code.
Create your own customized floor plan highlighting those companies you wish to visit while at the Midwinter Meeting. Select "View My Exhibitors" to create your own MY EXPO ACCOUNT. Then browse the list of registered exhibitors and add them to your account.
