Exhibitors & Sponsors

The Healthcare Industry Users Group continues to grow and now includes Oracle PeopleSoft, eBusiness, Siebel and Hyperion healthcare organizations. Interact 2014 will take place June 22-25, 2014, at the Rosen ShingleCreek Resort in Orlando, Florida. We are expecting more than 500 attendees from over 90 healthcare organizations in attendance. HIUG’s Interact conference is an annual event that provides Oracle Partners and other vendors the perfect opportunity to interact with healthcare professionals. Vendors can participate in the conference in several ways; as an exhibitor/conference sponsor, in exhibitor sponsored presentations, and as session co-presenters with HIUG members/clients. Exhibit area booths and sponsorship opportunities sell out quickly, so don't delay, make your plans now to be part of Interact 2014! … and as always, our earlybird sponsors will receive a 10% discount for early signups (details on this special discount can be found in the Interact 2014 sponsorship prospectus below).

Reasons to sponsor the conference:

  • Demonstrate your company's commitment to, and support of, your existing healthcare clients and potential clients
  • Opportunity to meet face to face and network with HIUG members
  • Attend sessions by Oracle on product directions
  • Attend presentations by healthcare organizations who will share their successes and discuss how to better utilize their Oracle systems
