Spok takes healthcare communications conference on the road

Spok’s annual healthcare communications conference is offering attendees something fresh this year. Instead of one event, Connect 16 will be a series of day-long programs held in six locations around the country, with the theme of “On the Road: Continuing the Conversation.” Like the annual gathering, the Connect 16 events will provide a lively forum for healthcare leaders and industry experts to share innovative ideas and discuss trends in healthcare communications.

“We decided to hold regional conferences this year in an effort to bring the best of our annual event to more people,” said Vincent D. Kelly, chief executive officer of Spok. “These one-day gatherings will offer all the key elements from our national event, including industry trend sessions, case studies, networking, and opportunities to learn more about Spok’s plans for the future.”

Each event will feature sessions on strategic secure text messaging, how to create and maintain a mobile program, the future of the contact center, and a local case study. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet with Spok staff and partners, explore new communication options, and discuss emerging trends with industry colleagues.  

“Our annual conference has always been a great way for our customers to network with one another and learn about potential solutions to their communications challenges,” said Kelly. “We hope these events will provide a more accessible and convenient option for many of them.”

The Connect 16 regional conferences will kick off in Dallas on March 24, move to Boston and New York in May, followed by Chicago in September, San Francisco in October, and Atlanta in December. For a detailed schedule and registration options, visit
