Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Reverse Expo?
Unlike a traditional expo, the ACE Reverse Expo features senior healthcare and GPO executives staffing booths as they host healthcare facility and capital equipment suppliers, architectural firm representatives, equipment planners, engineers, construction company executives and related consultants and executives from the facility and capital equipment sectors, providing a unique opportunity to effectively and efficiently use their time and resources.  The ACE Summit Reverse Expo provides substantial cost-cutting opportunities for attending suppliers, engineers, architects and construction company executives by saving time and travel expenses otherwise associated with building partnerships through travel to individual healthcare systems, hospitals and GPOs. 

Hospital and health system executives save valuable time otherwise taken up by the process of sourcing new vendors, business partners and consultants. The ACE Summit Reverse Expo offers an open environment to meet with several potential business partners in one neutral venue.
