This format provides a unique opportunity for all parties to effectively and efficiently use their time and resources.

Exhibitor / Supplier Information:
The IDN Summit's Reverse Expo format allow these suppliers an opportunity to meet senior healthcare purchasing executives who host GPOs, suppliers and distributors in their own expo booth, instead of the usual tradeshow format where the supplier has to wait for the healthcare executive to walk past their booth in order to grab their attention. This format allows suppliers to enjoy a much more efficient and open experience meeting with their healthcare purchasing partners and avoided the usual costs associated with traveling to all of these systems individually.
