Distributor Q&A Sessions

Manufacturers: Your registration for HIDA’s Streamlining Healthcare Expo & Business Exchange gives you admission to the HIDA Distributor Q&A Sessions. Each session highlights a different distribution company.

Each Distributor Q&A Session will kick off with a panel of leading distributor executives who will introduce their company, and discuss relevant markets and product categories.

The second half of the session is a unique opportunity for manufacturers to ask the panelists specific questions. Its’s a great way to learn about different companies and explore potential partnerships.
