''We are a very large organization and I can't do it by myself, so I come the ACE Summit to SHOP!''

- Lance Mendiola, Vice President, Facilities Management and Contruction, CHRISTUS Health

"The ACE Summit and Reverse Expo is a unique conference with a superlative goal to bring three critical components of a healthcare project – architecture, construction and equipment – together.  With the integration and 'smartness' of healthcare facilities today, this melding is key to the success of a project.  The Summit’s best-of-the-best keynote speakers are informative and thought-provoking; the learning sessions are educational and industry trending; the reverse expo is the most unique environment for information sharing between suppliers and healthcare organizations; the intimate planning summits are a great place to learn from others’ experiences.  All in, a conference well worth the attendance and experience!."

Jill S. M. Pearsall, Senior Vice President, Texas Children's Hospital
