“We are thrilled about every aspect of our second event,” says Dr. Hayes. “It doesn’t seem possible that we’d top the success of our first symposium, but with the excellent feedback and suggestions we received, we’re sure to exceed all expectations. From the new venue, to our own Hayes experts and presenters across the healthcare industry, our clients can expect an enjoyable and productive two days.”
