What makes Premier’s annual Breakthroughs event the industry standard?

The right players. The right venue. The right timing. This combination has made Breakthroughs the industry standard for suppliers. The event’s unprecedented cross-section of healthcare leaders attend Breakthroughs with one specific goal: determining new and better ways to transform healthcare. These industry movers and shakers are looking for approaches that will help them achieve better outcomes, reduce costs, and improve efficiencies. There’s no better place to demonstrate how your product or service can help them do just that.

Look for a cross-section of leaders from Premier’s member health systems and hospitals – C-suite executives and supply chain professionals to orthopedic service line managers – who share one vital trait. They are the authority when it comes to purchases and services. Nearly 80 percent of attendees are final decision-makers.



Leverage this time with the Premier team as well. Brainstorm ideas. Get that long-awaited introduction. Warm up that lead. The multi-day Breakthroughs event has highly intentional opportunities for you to engage our account management/field, sourcing and contracting representatives to accomplish these objectives.



This year, 98 percent of exhibitors are planning to return. At Breakthroughs 2019, nearly 550 companies reserved booths, and the number of representatives from each contracted supplier ranged from one to 20. Join the Breakthroughs Experience! Your peers are here – manning their booths, networking with an unparalleled cross-section of healthcare professionals, attending general and breakout sessions alongside event attendees and the Premier team, and participating in special supplier-specific activities.
