What we offer

This event gives you access to the thinking about management challenges both from other university hospitals and research institutes, but also from the CEOs who run the big, international, for-profit health care groups in hospitals, labs/imaging and elderly care. Uniquely, it looks at what can actually be achieved over the next three years based on case-studies and experience. The event has a strong emphasis on profitability and business development. It is also highly interactive with a lot of Q&A and discussion. HBI, now in its 13th year, brings together 700+ CEOs and other senior managers from over 40 countries. You should join us in June 2023.

Why you should attend​

  • Tackle your burning issues – You’ll find sessions on partnering, workforce/culture, brand and digital business models.
  • Understand how the sector is changing globally – How will Big Tech impact the sector? Who will win the first mile of diagnostics? Who are building international service platforms?
  • Environmental, Social and Governance are becoming ever more important. You’ll find sessions where CEOs discuss the nuts and bolts of how to implement robust ESG.
  • CEO-level case studies – This is the forum where CEOs talk frankly about their issues and challenges.
  • Meet potential partners – The economic crisis means university hospitals increasingly need to reach out beyond the public sector and consider how to best build win/win relationships with service providers, big medtech and big pharma. This is the best forum to discuss these issues.

Who should attend?

Apart from CEOs and Chief Medical Officers,  this forum is highly relevant to directors of strategy, partnership, business development and cultural change. Many organisations send entire management teams to HBI.
