One of the two national healthcare marketing conferences I attend each year is the Healthcare Marketing Strategies Summit, produced by the Forum for Healthcare Strategists (of which I am a member). The seventeenth national conference will take place in Orlando, Florida, April 19 – May 1, 2012. The Summit is an opportunity for healthcare marketing, planning, and strategy executives to share “best practices” and network with colleagues from hospitals, health systems, and health plans. For the 2012 event, approximately 350 executives are expected to attend, a size that allows for lots of networking and interaction.
The conference recently issued its call for speakers. If you are interested, the deadline for submissions is Friday, September 23, 2011. Along with the obvious recognition, conference faculty receive free conference registration ($995 value). I’ve had the pleasure of speaking at a number of these events and have always found the experience to be beneficial.
