Medisave were delighted to be invited to support 3M Littmann at the AHA (American Heart Association) congress in Orlando in November. With UK and USA staff drafted in for our first ever big event working to promote and engrave Littmann Stethoscopes, logistics were planned and prepared as thoroughly as possible.
In 21 degree heat, the Medisavers hired an apartment with pool for down time – of which there was little!
Some staff travelled from DC to Orlando by train, some flew and the laser engravers made their way by car in a journey totalling 19 hours.
Set up the day before was an eye opener. The venue was massive. Although 3M Littmann forwarned the team that it would be busy the size of the event and the amount of customers wanting a new Littmann stethoscope was astounding – many having travelled from overseas.
3M had commissioned an amazing stand and the moment the show started, the stand was inundated by customers wanting to see the latest offerings from Littmann and 3M. Many were delighted to be able to have their stethoscope personalized and the queues extended 5 or 10 people deep such was the demand. The three days ran like clockwork and although crazy, the Medisave team did get a chance to see Orlando Magic play basketball before packing everything up to return to base. A successful first collaboration with 3M Littmann and an amazing opportunity for Medisave to be a part of such a prestigious event.
