What’s New

HIDA’s Streamlining Healthcare Conference, September 26-28, Chicago, IL, is the healthcare supply chain’s number one event for business meetings and networking. This is HIDA’s largest conference, bringing together more than 1,000 registrants in total – from distribution companies, manufacturers, group purchasing organizations (GPOs), and solution providers – all here to do business and learn about what’s happening in our industry. You can register today».

For Distributors: This is your chance to meet your partners in a convenient, centralized location, and discover the newest manufacturers in medical product development. You’ll have plenty of networking time, whether it is in a casual, open setting, such as in the Expos, in private meeting rooms, or via pre-scheduled, structured appointments at HIDA’s Executive Business Exchange. We welcome manufacturers of all sizes, specialties, and markets.

For Manufacturers: Get maximum visibility in front of over 84 national, independent, and specialty distributors from all over the country. As always, we hope you reserve an exhibit space at HIDA’s highly rated Innovation Expo, where manufacturers run the booths and distributor attendees walk the aisles – a great environment to start a casual conversation with current and prospective partners.
New for this year, you will easily identify the GPO tables as well as women-owned, minority-owned, and veteran-owned distributors in the GPO Aisle and the Diversity Aisle.

For GPOs: The Streamlining Healthcare Conference is the best setting to raise awareness for your organization and cultivate new partnerships. Your conference registration includes a free exhibit table at the Reverse Expo, where manufacturers walk the show floor, and distributors and GPOs run the booths. Reverse Expo participants enjoy high manufacturer foot traffic, and have the opportunity to meet the distributors behind the tables as well.

For Service Providers: HIDA’s Innovation Expo is your place to engage current and prospective supply chain customers. The Expo is consistently rated one of the top reasons to attend the Streamlining Healthcare Conference, drawing senior level distribution and GPO executives to the show floor.
