This event affords numerous opportunities to meet directly with representatives from major GPOs and IDNs representatives all in one location — a “one-stop shopping” for your business requirements. In these difficult economic times many companies are utilizing the FAH Business Exposition as their first quarter, and in some cases their second quarter, travel budget. As an added value, the buyer group is the exhibitor, consequently, there are no booth or product shipping costs on the part of supplier companies.
