Metro Denver, dubbed the “Silicon Valley of Health & Wellness,” will be the host city for the Healthcare Convention & Exhibitors Association (HCEA) 2015 Annual Meeting at the Colorado Convention Center from June 20-23.
The cornerstone of the Annual Meeting is HCEA’s exclusive, healthcare-specific education, which will showcase a variety of educational programs designed to assist healthcare association professionals and pharmaceutical, medical device and technology marketers develop innovative and strategic, yet practical, solutions to complex challenges they face in their everyday work.
“HCEA’s Annual Meeting provides healthcare specific education you can’t find anywhere else. Face-to-face interaction between healthcare marketers, exhibit managers, association meeting organizers and suppliers allows for open dialog and sharing of best practices,” said Diane Benson, president, HCEA, and of GE Healthcare. “Denver has grown into a healthcare and wellness hub, so it’s only appropriate that the HCEA come to the Colorado Convention Center for 2015.”
New this year is the addition of the Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate as part of the pre-conference education. Educational opportunities include the return of HCEA’s advanced-level education and Association Roundtable.
In addition, HCEA has brought back the popular Healthcare Professionals Panel for the opening session, featuring physicians and nurse practitioners discussing what is important to them on the exhibit floor. Robert Collins, MBA, CISSP, CAP, chief information security officer of Indian Health Services will provide the closing address for the meeting. He will share insight into security issues for both conference exhibitors and attendees.
There are numerous networking opportunities planned during the meeting, including the Opening Reception at the Pinnacle Club touted as having one of the largest views in North America, Denver Dine-Around, HCEA’s Exhibit Hall and the Closing Reception sponsored by Visit Denver.
HCEA’s exhibit hall features close to 100 exhibitors from organizations that supply products and services to healthcare exhibitors. For the second year in a row, the hall will feature HCEA Product Theaters, where exhibiting companies can showcase a product or service to a targeted audience of healthcare exhibition planners and marketers.
