Each year HCEA honors an individual with the HCEA Distinguished Service Award. This award was established to acknowledge individuals who made a significant contribution to HCEA and/or to the healthcare convention & exhibition industry throughout the years. This is a lifetime achievement award, meaning the nominated individual should have at least 10 years’ experience in the healthcare convention and exhibition industry.
If you have any questions, please contact Kristen Leikwold, Membership Concierge, at email@example.com or 703-935-1961.
