The event had a little over 90 vendors and a total of 700 people in attendance. Being a "by invitation only" event, only serious customers attended and sales began early and continuing throughout the day. Most vendors and attendees expressed a high degree of satisfaction with the overall scheduling, set up and business opportunities available at the event. Due to the success of this year's event, the door has certainly been left open for a MEDCO 2013.
MEDCO did not address any such plans, but looking back on it Keim is very pleased with its success. "We put this Show together in a matter of months and we were told that it appeared as if we had been planning it for years," he commented. "I could not be more proud of the organization that we have, or of the support and respect that we have with our manufacturers. Most important, I am so thankful for the relationships that we have and are continuing to grow with our customers. At the end of the day, everything we do is done with them in mind."
