The IDN Summit Experience

Professional Development

For Your Safety: The IDN Summit is committed to ensuring faculty and attendee safety during the educational program. These measures include planning longer breaks between sessions for cleaning purposes, utilizing overflow rooms, and ensuring all seating is socially-distant. 

You’re certain to gain practical solutions that can be immediately implemented within your organization. Educational content is sourced from IDN executives across the nation to provide insight into the most pressing healthcare supply chain and pharmacy challenges, relevant market developments, and practical and progressive ideas being implemented within the industry. Featuring breakout sessions centered around supply chain and pharmacy operations strategies, senior level discussions, and visionary keynotes, there’s something for everyone at the 2021 Summits.

Educational content will be presented through a mixture of live and on-demand formats:

Product Sourcing Opportunities

For Your Safety: The IDN Summit has worked diligently to ensure attendee safety during the Reverse Expo. These measures include limiting the distribution of printed items, increasing the size and distance between booths, and utilizing directional signage and floor markings. Click here to view a full list of the safety enhancements being implemented specifically for the Reverse Expo.

On-Site Experience: The Reverse Expo allows IDN and RPC executives to staff a booth on the exhibit floor, while suppliers and GPOs visit the booths. Through this format, you’re able to see a variety of products and services to benefit your organization, all in one place, in a safe and controlled environment. There’s no need for vendors to enter your facility and you can engage in sourcing discussions in a convenient and efficient manner.

Virtual Experience: The Virtual Experience will feature two Virtual Reverse Expos. With a similar format to its on-site counterpart, these completely virtual expos offer you the opportunity to engage in sourcing discussions from the comfort of your home or office via video-conferencing. Through this virtual format, you’re able to see a variety of products and services to benefit your organization, all in one place, through the virtual platform. 

Substantive & Efficient Networking

For Your Safety: The IDN Summit has enhanced the on-site networking opportunities to ensure attendee safety. These measures include hosting many function outdoors, utilizing hotel staff to serve and distribute food during meal functions, and ensuring all seating is socially-distant.

We understand the importance and need for substantive, yet efficient networking experiences between today’s supply chain and pharmacy leaders, GPOs, and suppliers to overcome supply chain disruptions and continuity concerns resulting from COVID-19. The Reverse Expo offers dedicated time for product sourcing and review. You can also rely on the IDN Summit staff to assist you with facilitating connections with peer IDNs, provide supplier lists for specific products you may be sourcing, and more to assist you with strengthening your supply chain.
