Why Attend

Event Overview:

The ACE (Architecture, Capital Equipment and Engineering) Summit is uniquely positioned to focus on healthcare construction and capital equipment projects and brings together Senior Healthcare Executives with suppliers of architecture, construction, capital equipment, engineering and facilities products or services.

The ACE Summit and Reverse Expo is produced by Healthcare Business Media, Inc. whose mission it is to work for the continuous improvement of healthcare delivery with unique content driven events and fundamental research. Healthcare Business Media, Inc., also produces the IDN Summit and Reverse Expo.

The ACE Summit and Reverse Expo provides leading healthcare system, hospital, and GPO administrators a unique opportunity to interact with suppliers of architecture, construction, capital equipment and facilities products and services in a neutral and open environment.  The ACE Summit education program focuses on unique strategic healthcare facility and capital equipment issues and is developed by the ACE Advisory Board. The 2018 ACE Summit will be held February 19-21 at The Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta, GA.

What is the Reverse Expo

Unlike a traditional expo, the ACE Reverse Expo features senior healthcare and GPO executives staffing booths as they host healthcare facility and capital equipment suppliers, architectural firm representatives, equipment planners, engineers, construction company executives and related consultants and executives from the facility and capital equipment sectors, providing a unique opportunity to effectively and efficiently use their time and resources.  The ACE Summit Reverse Expo provides substantial cost-cutting opportunities for attending suppliers, engineers, architects and construction company executives by saving time and travel expenses otherwise associated with building partnerships through travel to individual healthcare systems, hospitals and GPOs. 

Hospital and health system executives save valuable time otherwise taken up by the process of sourcing new vendors, business partners and consultants. The ACE Summit Reverse Expo offers an open environment to meet with several potential business partners in one neutral venue.
