Join us for an all-out inspirational, information-packed and fun 2.5-day Summit, where all business functions and organizational levels, from strategic to tactical, are united in a common goal. We’ll see you in beautiful National Harbor!

The Summit20 Talks were the highlight of the conference for me this year. There were a lot of informative topics covered that I was able to take back to my team at Health and Hospitals.

Very informative. Awesome people sharing good information.

I always really love the Summit20 Talks!

Summit Attendee

I think that's the biggest benefit of coming… Just hanging out with people who do the same work you do, and bouncing ideas back and forth. We've solved a lot of problems that way.

Lisa Maxted, Purchasing Manager, Hackensack Meridian Health

Another part of the GHX Summit that I love is the opportunity to go into the Learning Lab, and talk to the developers so that we can see what's coming… They're always looking to make it better and I think that's another opportunity we have that is a really great opportunity here.

Laura Catalini, Lead Buyer, Hackensack Meridian Health

I found both the Learning Pavilion and the Summit 20 Talks very informative.

Summit Attendee

Great networking opportunity. Learned from peers and appreciated the best practices.

GHX always does an excellent job with the Summit. Each Summit is better than the previous. Great job!!!

Summit Attendee

The Summit has been fascinating... Every conversation I've had, I learn something... it helps me better understand the approach of the customer.

Ben Heitner, Manager - Shared Services, DJO

I have really enjoyed getting to know other colleagues at the Summit. Whether they are a supplier or provider, it's very interesting to hear other people's perspectives and to realize that, a lot of times, we all have the same issues and figuring out together what works best.
