Attendee Demographics

The Forum conference serves as a valuable opportunity for healthcare providers, clinic managers and clinic administrators of Colorado’s rural health clinics and rural hospitals to actively engage in creating synergy for programs and resources as they move towards models of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), Meaningful Use, Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), and the Triple Aim.  In addition, clinics will have the opportunity to learn about and discuss HIT.

In the scope of most conferences – we are small – with a specific niche group of healthcare professionals in attendance.  Given the three-year attendance record, CRHC expects around 200 participants to attend the conference in 2018.  Approximately half of the participants represent rural health providers, with the remainder comprising exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, staff and other healthcare professionals.

  • CEOs and administrators: 37%
  • Clinic Directors/Managers: 33%
  • Specialists/Coordinators: 17%
  • EMT/Physician/Nurse: 8%
  • HIT/Compliance/QI: 5%

ROI: Reaching your Target Market

Our group is a close-knit community of rural leaders who know each other and come together every year to attend this conference – for them, it’s about seeing old friends and colleagues.  Your job as an exhibitor will be challenging, but the key is to be approachable, introduce yourself and totally immerse yourself in the conference. Think of yourself as an attendee and use your exhibit table as a home-base (where you invite attendees for further information).  For this reason, your exhibit fee includes an attendee registration!  We want you to participate fully in the entire conference!  Our conference is definitely not about quantity – but quality leads.
