Exhibitor General Information


Exhibitors & Sponsors

The Healthcare Industry User Group continues to grow and now includes Oracle PeopleSoft, eBusiness, Siebel and Hyperion healthcare organizations. Interact 2015 will take place June 7-10, 2015, at the Venetian Palazzo, in Las Vegas, Nevada. 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 particpate 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 2015!

Reasons to sponsor the conference:

  • Demonstrate your company's commitment to, and support of, your existing healthcare clients and potential clients
  • Opporuntiy 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
