Employer Healthcare Congress to Sponsor over 200 Employers to Attend Upcoming Conference

March 8th, 2010 No comments

The Employer Healthcare Congress will be sponsoring up to 200 employers to attend the upcoming Congress on September 20th-22nd, 2010. The Employer Healthcare Congress, www.employerhealthcarecongress.com, will feature 4 individual conferences that will be happening at the same time – the Corporate Wellness Conference, the Voluntary Benefits Conference, the Self Funding Employer Healthcare & Workers Compensation Conference and the Expatriate and Travel Insurance Conference. The Employer Healthcare Congress is expecting up to 2,000 attendees, up to 120 exhibitors, up to 75 expert speakers and up to 5,000 private one-on-one networking meetings. The Congress will be highlighting the benefits of having these specific health plans for employers while also driving four times the amount of traffic for exhibitors by having a shared exhibit hall for all of the conferences.

The Employer Healthcare Congress will be providing advanced educational sessions while highlighting the opportunity to network with other leaders in the industry. With the Congress’ new networking software, before the conference starts attendees will be able to select who they want to meet with and set up a pre-scheduled time to meet with the other attendee in the conference’s networking rooms.   By taking advantage of the networking software, attendees will be able to accomplish in two days what would normally take years to accomplish.  The Employer Healthcare Congress should be the largest employer healthcare conference in the country.

The Employer Healthcare Congress is sponsored by the Voluntary Benefits Magazine, the Corporate Wellness Magazine and the Self Funding Magazine. For more information email me at [email protected] .
