Architecture, Capital Equipment, Engineering

ACE stands for Architecture, Capital Equipment and Engineering. The ACE Summit and Reverse Expo is the premier professional development and networking event from the producer of the IDN Summit and Reverse Expo setting the foundation for collaboration among healthcare’s architectural, capital equipment and engineering sectors. The event 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 Reverse Expo

The format of the ACE Reverse Expo provides the most efficient opportunity to network with leading healthcare facilities as they host attendees in their exhibit booth. This format allows healthcare executives the optimal way to enhance existing relationships and forge new ones. Many healthcare facilities bring a checklist of supplier categories they need to source and find that they can fill all of those needs during their ACE Summit and Reverse Expo experience. The process saves countless hours of sourcing and meeting suppliers at your facility.

For supplier companies, do the math...based on the current registration fee, the opportunity to make these important contacts at the 2015 ACE Summit is less than $50 per facility, a minuscule amount compared to the cost of traveling to each of these organizations individually. The exhibiting healthcare executives are actively seeking ways to improve their sourcing capabilities through their participation in the ACE Reverse Expo.

ACE Business Exchanges

The ACE Summit provides unique opportunities for architecture, construction, equipment planning, engineering and other ‘specifier’ firms to uniquely impact hospitals, healthcare system and GPO executives, healthcare suppliers, and other attendees at the ACE Summit. Learn more.

Meet the ACE Advisory Board

The ACE Advisory Board is chaired by John Sdanowich, capital administrator, Johns Hopkins Hospital, and made up of individuals representing healthcare systems and GPOs. These industry leaders provide input and guidance in development of the ACE Summit education program and overall direction for the ACE Summit and Reverse Expo. Learn more about the ACE Advisory Board members here.


PLEASE NOTE that Meeting & Travel Consultants, Inc. (MTC) is the official housing provider for ACE Summit & Reverse Expo. In the event you are contacted by another hotel/housing bureau, soliciting hotel reservations for this show and asking for an advance deposit paid directly to the agency, please note that they are unauthorized agents and unable to provide discounted hotel rates that are offered by MTC to those attending. These rates are exclusive through MTC only and will not be extended by the hotels directly to agents other than MTC.
