Interested in Sponsoring?

Over the past 11 years, the HME News Business Summit has established itself as the premier education event among HME leaders. The Summit has a limited number of sponsorship opportunities available for companies who understand the value of being identified with content-rich, cutting edge information before an audience of HME executives.

Your company's sponsorship makes the HME News Business Summit possible. We have several levels of participation, giving both large and small vendors the chance to be closely linked with the Summit and HME News in all our marketing materials. Numerous networking opportunities put you in touch with provider management and on-site recognition reinforces the message that your company is on the leading edge of bringing solid, game-changing education to HME.
