The Health Professions Network's meeting and collaboration goals are supported by the generous provisions of travel & tourism associations and authorities in the locations we visit.
Our hosts provide incredible value to our members by giving them a low cost opportunity to visit and learn more about the hotels, conference spaces, and healthcare organizations in the area.
They also give our members a unique opportunity to experience the outstanding, fun, and beautiful cities themselves in conjunction with HPN's educational and collaborative meetings.
Often, our members return this value to the locations we visit by scheduling regional and national conferences for their associations in these cities. Since 2012, HPN members have scheduled several large national conferences in our eight host cities and many more regional conferences.
In part, this is a testament to how excellent the cities we visit have been!
In the Spring of 2015, HPN visited Grand Rapids, Michigan, which surprised us with its collaboratively revitalized downtown area. Collaborating to make a real difference is something we can appreciate!
Grand Rapids boasts some gorgeous, venerable and modern hotels in an easy to traverse downtown area - even in the snow, there's an intricate skywalk - plus, they've been voted "Beer City, USA" due to their 40+ breweries!
We really think you should - Experience Grand Rapids!
In the Fall of 2015, HPN was hosted by Seattle, Washington, which managed to exceed already high expectations. Seattle's new modern conference centers - with even more currently in development - make a city with many charms a new destination for large national conferences!
From the historic Pike Place Market to its beautiful, modern hotels - everything conference goers could want was in convenient walking distance. Seattle managed to present itself like a small city but offer the amenities and excitement of a large one.
Go - Visit Seattle!
Our next stop is the ever exciting destination of Atlantic City, New Jersey for our Spring 2016 meeting. We're excited to learn more about what Atlantic City has to offer - and have plenty of fun doing it!
Of course, since HPN's inception in 1995, we've visited quite a few locations that have consistently impressed us with what they had to offer.
Our members are still talking about our Spring 2014 conference in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where the amenities and health systems shattered our expectations! And who could forget the beautiful Long Beach, California, where they graciously hosted HPN for the second time in Fall of 2014, or the wonderful attractions and scenery surrounding Tuscon, Arizona (Fall 2013).
We encourage you to learn more about all of the locations that have hosted our conferences since 1995 - we certainly enjoyed our stay!
