Provider Travel Information

Reimbursement Opportunities
Qualifying senior IDN executives are able to receive generous scholarships to cover registration, airfare, hotel accommodations, and ground transportation by participating in the Reverse Expo.

All scholarship offerings are designed to be compliant with the most stringent IDN and RPC reimbursement policies. See our compliance statement below. For questions, please contact Robert Chafin at 859.523.5701.

Healthcare Business Media (HBM) operates the IDN Summit & Reverse Expo. HBM does not sell any products or services to hospitals or health systems and therefore is not considered a vendor. The scholarship for event attendance and travel is issued by HBM and not a specific vendor or sponsor. There is absolutely no obligation for hospital executives to make purchases from or to do business with any of the vendor attendees during or after the conference. We do not recommend or support any specific vendor that attends the conference, and the hospitals and health systems can choose on their own whether or not to have business interactions with vendor attendees after the Summit.

Complimentary Hotel Stay
Complimentary hotel accommodations for approved representative(s) for up to three nights at the host venue when you staff a Reverse Expo booth on-site and attend an event function not part of the core conference program (such as a focus group, lunch n learn, user group meeting, etc.), 

Please note that hotel accommodations must be coordinated with an HBM representative. If you wish to extend your stay beyond the event dates, you may do so at your own expense and those arrangements can be made by Robert Chafin.

Airfare Reservations 
We know flight accommodations often involve a number of personal preferences, so you can book and request reimbursement up to $450.00 from HBM at the conclusion of the Summit.
