Healthcare Facilities Management Forum Kicks Off Oct. 19

DALLAS – Up to 70 directors of healthcare facilities will meet in Dallas for the complimentary Healthcare Facilities Management Forum on Oct. 19-20, 2015. With a unique appointment-based format of one-on-one meetings, seminars led by industry leaders and peer-to-peer networking opportunities, the forum is recognized as an efficient method for sourcing new solutions in the healthcare facilities industry. Sponsors include Axis Communications, Detex, Kimberly Clark and Bradley Corporation.
Appointment-based events are revolutionizing the networking industry and are considered by many decision makers to be the best way to learn about new products on a personalized basis. Unlike a traditional trade show, executives or delegate attendees select solution providers of their choice from a catalog prior to the forum. At the event they meet one-on-one for 30-minute consultative appointments with those providers to discuss their needs and tailor services to their facility.
“My main reason for attending the forum is to engage in discussions with different vendors to, hopefully, seek out innovative technologies on the market and bring new ideas back to my organization,” said attendee Mark Paige, director of environmental and linen services at Dimensions Healthcare Services.
The forum also hosts a seminar program led by industry experts covering energy efficiency operations, sustainability, capital forecasting, LED-lighting and construction management.
The Healthcare Facilities Management Forum also provides networking opportunities, including complimentary meals, refreshments, a gala dinner and a casino night. Even though online casino games like joker123 kasino bossku are starting to become more appealing to people who wish to gamble, the idea of hosting a casino night is still as popular as ever. Not only does it have the potential to be a lot of fun, but all of these events look to get people talking to each other and networking. On sites like xe88, it’s as simple as one-click to install casino games on devices like Android, iPhone, and PC. Simply click install and enjoy the thrill and excitement casino games have to offer no matter where you are. The casino night is competitive, so it’s important that people are confident with their poker skills. Before the event, some people will normally visit 918kiss register page, allowing them to get some practice in on some online casino games. This helps them prepare for the casino night. To make the most of your money, try and find casino games that offer free spins, or some credit to get you started, this way you won’t be out of pocket.

The appointment-based format serves as an efficient method to connect with the most relevant providers. “We tailor the entire event to the delegate attendee,” said Steve Parsloe, CEO of Forum Events. “When [attendees] register, our team of event organizers reaches out to them and finds out each attendee’s specific needs. We then find the best-suited providers and make the connection at the forum.”
The day-and-a-half event provides the most efficient method for industry learning and networking, and the most productive relationship building for attending vendors.
