After much consideration, HCEA has made the difficult decision to move HCEAConnect, originally scheduled for August 15 -19, 2020 to a virtual format later this year.


As an association within the live events industry, we remain committed to supporting the safe revitalization of F2F events. However, the health and well-being of our members, sponsors, attendees, and the healthcare community, remains our primary concern. The many unknown factors related to the pandemic, increasing infection rates, travel bans, and state-to-state travel limitations forced us to pause and consider our ability to safely execute a meaningful live program in the current environment.


While this means that HCEA will not host a face-to-face event this year, we are excited to announce that we will launch a fully re-imagined virtual conference and exhibition later this year. Additionally, we will be introducing several unique and relevant virtual programs throughout the summer and fall.
We wish you all continued good health and safety as we continue to embrace each “next normal.” If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to connect with us as needed.


All the best,


Jeannie Wert, President, HCEA
