“What a great way to get a lot of useful information in a short amount of time.  The format of the Reverse Expo ensures that both parties get right to the point!  I rarely stop by every booth to speak to each vendor this format provided a very efficient way for me to hear from a lot of suppliers and service providers.  I highly recommend this to HTM leaders!”

— Ray Laxton, MBA/MHA, Sutter Health eQuip Administrative Director



“I really like the Leadership Summit format.  I have found it to be a great resource for me to stay up-to-date on developing trends and it has also been a great place for face-to-face meetings with my peers.  I always return from the Summit with great ideas that I bring back to my organization and implement.”
