In addition, international speaker Jeff Tobe, CSP, will deliver the opening keynote address. Tobe will tell attendees how their organizations can design and implement the ideal customer experience.

There are numerous networking opportunities planned during meeting including the Opening Reception at the House of Blues, Dinner with Strangers Dine-Around, sponsored receptions, HCEA's Exhibit Hall and the Closing Reception at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. HCEA's exhibit hall features close to 100 exhibitors from organizations that supply products and services to healthcare exhibitors. New features include the HCEA Product Theater, where exhibiting companies can showcase a product or service to a targeted audience of healthcare exhibition planners and marketers.

The Global Center for Health Innovation is the only facility in the world that displays the future of health and healthcare innovation, education and commerce through state-of-the-art spaces, programs and virtual offerings. In addition, Cleveland and the Northeast Ohio region are home to the Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth, Sisters of Charity Health System and University Hospitals, along with other leading medical institutions. More than 700 bioscience companies are located in the area, and Cleveland-area healthcare start-ups lead the Midwest in attracting business investments, bringing in nearly $200 million in the past two years. Tours of the Global Center for Health Innovation will be integrated into the HCEA Annual Meeting.

HCEA, in partnership with St. Louis University, will offer the accredited Healthcare Compliance Certificate session on June 23, providing an opportunity for every healthcare meeting professional to learn how to balance unprecedented changes and demands on understanding the global impact of healthcare compliance.  This certification teaches registrants how to tackle tough regulations, adjust and readjust priorities while keeping one eye on the short-term and the other on long-term survival.
