2017 AHW Prospectus
Generate stronger leads and enhance brand differentiation at Australian Healthcare Week 2017
Suppliers to the healthcare sector trust IQPC to raise their profile, initiate conversations that help deliver their message and support their business growth in a complex market, with a complex decision making chain.
As both public and private sector facilities reassess their critical spend, the one thing that you can guarantee is that the “easy business” doesn’t exist anymore. Every procurement decision has to demonstrate a clear ROI, with innovative, cost-saving technologies more important than previous relationships.
IQPC are uniquely positioned to help solution providers to the healthcare design and construction industry through Australian Healthcare Week. The Australian Healthcare Week 2016 was our biggest and best event yet. So much so that we have outgrown our venue, and next year will take up residence at the newly built ICC in Sydney.
