Vendor Display Awards

Along with these honors, JMT was selected for the conference's Vendor Booth Award.  At each MdQI conference, there is a competition for vendor booths that most effectively convey the conference theme.  This year’s theme was “To Infinity And Beyond: The Future of Transportation”. Displays were judged by conference participants with regard to originality, adherence and appropriateness for the contest, and overall conference theme.
 
JMT’s winning booth entry featured a transporter / photo booth, through which one could “travel” to a number of locations, including sunny, sandy, snowy, and even lunar destinations.  Photos were emailed to the travelers to enjoy upon their return.
