GENERAL CONFERENCE FAQ

Now in its 22nd year, the GHX Summit is an annual, in-person three-day event bringing together both the buy and sell sides of healthcare—providers, suppliers, distributors and GPOs—and across all levels of the organization, from executive to strategic to tactical to advance the business of healthcare. It is a super education-packed event filled with real-world learning, best practice sharing and networking. 

SESSIONS

  • Fun! 

GHX Summit will return to being a 100% in-person event. While the pandemic forced recent Summits to go virtual, nothing compares to meeting face to face with peers, business partners and industry experts.

GHX will follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended safety protocols related to the COVID-19 pandemic in effect for the event dates. Due to the dynamic nature of the pandemic, the protocols are likely to change between now and the Summit. A Health & Safety Guide including safety protocols and attendee expectations will be shared with all registrants by email and published on the Summit website here approximately 30-45 days prior to the event. 

 

Select sessions may be recorded and made available to paid registrants after the Summit. More details will be shared closer to the event.
