What's ACE?

The ACE Summit and Reverse Expo

Since its inception we have worked to bring together stakeholders leading large capital projects, equipment, services and funding necessary to deliver healthcare via acute and non-acute care environments. By building relationships that matter, we strive to break down silos and communication barriers to improve the nation’s healthcare infrastructure in this unique healthcare capital investment summit. 


The ACE Summit offers numerous educational opportunities throughout the conference, including breakout sessions on Monday, Tuesday’s general session, and peer-to-peer education on Wednesday morning. With a wide range of topics and a mix of CE-accredited and peer-led sessions, all attendees will have opportunities to learn new and cutting-edge topics.

Two Great Business Platforms

PDC Showcase

On Monday evening, architects, equipment planners, general contractors and engineers host booths during an open-networking reception. Enjoy food and drinks while you network and connect with stakeholders involved in all facets of healthcare architecture, capital equipment and engineering. Providers can visit the booths to meet architects, equipment planners, general contractors and engineers offering services and solutions for construction and capital projects. Suppliers can visit the booths to connect with the specifier groups on upcoming projects.

Reverse Expo

On Tuesday afternoon, hospital and health system executives host booths in the Reverse Expo as suppliers visit with them to build all-important relationships. This unique Reverse Expo format gives all attending suppliers the opportunity to strategically connect with multiple, key decision-makers.
