Medical Matters 2019!

A gigantic heartfelt thank you to all who attended our Grand Opening event last Friday for Clinic Sanmare. If you would like further information, a tour, all you have to do is send me an email!

We are in the homestretch for Medical Matters 2019 on February 11, 2019.

A few tips:

The doors to the Exhibitors Salon open at 9am. No early birds please and there is really no need to line up to enter Medical Matters as there is plenty of space and it runs all day.

Location: Hotel Marriott in Marina Vallarta. Easy access via bus (take any Marina bus, it stops right in front). Parking will be limited so carpool, bus, walk or park at Walmart and take a bus or taxi from there. If you are going to Uber: Paseo La Marina Norte 435, Marina Vallarta

The entrance to Medical Matters is NOT via the main lobby via the entrance to the Mikado Restaurant. You will see a large banner and volunteers to direct you.

Upon entering, you will stop at the registration table where we will have plenty of volunteers to give you information on everything you need to know! You will receive a bag, speaker’s schedule.

For all Medical Matters attendees the restaurants Las Casitas, Champions Sports Bar, La Estancia and Deli Los Mangos will offer a 20% discount. Good deal! You will probably want to take a little break during the day and the restaurants at the Hotel Marriott are great!

Throughout the event you will see our volunteers in green aprons. They can answer any questions you might have.

Speakers programs: There is NO registration prior, nor to the event. The salons will be clearly marked with volunteers at the doors. One cannot enter the room until the volunteer says so and the room MUST be cleared when the speaker is finished (even if you want to stay for the next speaker, you will have to go back outside and enter again). This is only fair to everyone wanting to attend a speakers program.

Once the room is full for each speakers program, no more people will be allowed inside. And yes, oftentimes the speakers programs become full and some are turned away. I will be re-running each speakers program in another location probably in March.

Take your time with ALL of the exhibitors! Most will be inside the grand ballroom but there are some outside of the big salon, in the lobby.

This is a NO CHARGE event! And no one will be selling anything at the event.

We ask that you ‘be gentle’ when collecting/receiving the giveaways from the exhibitors. I have had problems in the past with people rushing through the event, stuffing their bags and leaving.

We will have snacks available at two locations at the event at no charge. Snacks, not meals!

Oftentimes people want to have a chat with me regarding certain questions. I am running around like a nutbar the entire day and as much as I would like to chat with you, there just is not time. You can write down your question/contact and give to any of the volunteers in the green aprons and later, I will be in touch.


Here’s to a low-stress week!
