Digital MD-IDEX

14 – 17 September 2020


Fulfilling our commitment to serving our members – in good times and in bad – despite all odds, EPTDA is moving forward with its signature MD-IDEX (Manufacturer-Distributor Idea Exchange) in a digital format for 2020.
On popular demand and recommendation of our leaders, the Digital MD-IDEX will continue to serve as a unique program specifically designed to allow both distributors and manufacturers to meet in an organized, time-efficient context over 4 days.
Unlike the face-to-face MD-IDEX Meetings, the Digital MD-IDEX will be spread out over 4 days starting Monday, 14 September 2020 from 14:30 CET till 17:15 CET or 3 meetings and finishing on Thursday 17 September 2020 from 14:30 CET till 18:15 CET or 4 meetings.
Given the constraints of an online environment and differences in member company’s policies, restrictions and permissions, EPTDA will support its members to schedule the meetings but the choice of choosing the right technology and tool to host the meeting will be left at the discretion of Manufacturer companies. Our experience shows that the following meeting tools are efficient, secure and reliable:
