2016 Highlights

The Learning Pavilion helped me find additional information about a product that I saw in one of the sessions. The presentation was excellent, but it was nice to be able to see the product more in depth in the Learning Pavilion also.

The Learning Pavilion was a great idea. While it allowed folks like me to get a feel for your products the discussions I observed with GHX users was also helpful both for them and myself.

Another great GHX event. They keep getting better and better. I found the higher number of providers participating and sharing lessons-learned of great value.

Another great Summit — keep up the good work! My peers at work and my boss (CFO) were impressed with the caliber of speakers, as well as the role suppliers play in the Summit (as attendees with valuable input - not as salesmen).

— 2016 Summit Attendee
The event was incredible. Events like this do almost as much to bring the providers and suppliers together, and improve the supply chain, as the actual automation does.

— 2016 Summit Attendee
The event was well laid out, easy to navigate, and the GHX associates were very helpful and knowledgeable. I also think the Shhh Party was a great success, especially the headphones. That was a fantastic idea to allow a mixture of networking and party like atmosphere in the same space.

The awards luncheon was really great — a highlight. I thought the speakers overall were very good and the Summit was one of the best I've attended.

— 2016 Summit Attendee
Excellent conference.

— 2016 Summit Attendee
I can’t say enough about the information, inspiration and motivation that I got out of the event. From the friendly, helpful and informative GHX personnel to the provider presenters and the inspiring guest speakers the event was a huge success for me… I just loved it!!!!
