The IDN Summit provides leading IDNs an efficient venue to interact with their GPO and supplier partners.   This unique forum allows senior IDN supply chain executives to network with and engage their peers on issues that challenge today's healthcare systems.

February 17-19, 2020
Westin Peachtree Plaza
Atlanta, GA

The ACE Summit and Reverse Expo provides leading healthcare systems, hospitals, and GPOs a unique opportunity to interact with suppliers of architecture, construction, capital equipment and facilities products and services in a neutral and open environment.  


The Reverse Expo

Both the IDN and ACE Summits utilize a Reverse Expo format, which provides unrivaled networking opportunities for attending suppliers and GPOs to cultivate partnerships with leading IDNs and healthcare systems.  Unlike a traditional trade show, the IDN and ACE Summits feature healthcare purchase-decision makers staffing booths hosting their GPO and supplier counterparts, providing a unique opportunity for all parties to effectively and efficiently use their time and resources. IDN and Health System senior purchasing executives save valuable time and resources normally associated with sourcing new vendors by networking with suppliers in the neutral, open environment of the Summits.
