Canopy Partners Event

Q: What is the Canopy Partners Imaging Summit Series? And what makes these events unique?

A: The Canopy Partners Imaging Summit was designed specifically for executive decision-makers from private radiology practices, outpatient imaging centers, and hospital imaging departments. We felt there was a void in the radiology industry for an intimate, boutique-style executive conference. Our goal is to create a high-value, educational event for radiology practices looking to elevate their imaging game. This event is full of radiology professionals who set trends, pursue innovation, and transform their organizations into industry leaders.

By popular demand, Canopy Partners will be hosting TWO events for the 2020 year!  May 27-29 we will be hosting the first Canopy Partners Health System Radiology Summit, designed for C-suite executives and senior radiology directors from health systems across the country. Oct. 21-23 we will be hosting the 7th Annual Canopy Partners Imaging Summit.  Both events will be held at the prestigious Umstead Hotel & Spa, in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Radiology and Imaging executives from across the country are invited to these one-of-a-kind industry events which offer educational sessions that are designed to help imaging businesses position themselves for future survival as well as growth and success in a rapidly evolving healthcare market. The events feature an all-star lineup of industry experts and thought leaders. We offer a wide range of educational and fun activities: round table discussions, hands-on best practices sessions, three dedicated networking opportunities, and more. 

Q: How many years has the Summit been held, and how has the event grown over the years?

A: We started the event in 2014 with 64 attendees. Since then, the event has more than doubled in size. Our focus is smaller, more intimate versus large scale.

Q: What is the Summit attendee mix?

A: In 2019, 155 imaging executives representing 85 imaging businesses from 28 states and four countries attended. More than 25% of the Top 80 independent U.S. radiology practices (according to 2019 Radiology Business Journal rankings: http://www.radiologybusiness.com) were represented, including seven of the Top 10.

Q: Who should attend?

A: The Imaging Summit Series is designed for healthcare executives from hospitals, private radiology practices, and outpatient imaging facilities. Attendees include C-Suite Executives such as CEOs, CTOs, COOs, Physician Practice Leaders, Radiology Directors and other industry thought leaders who are interested in focusing on their high-end strategy. The events are limited to two attendees from each organization. Attendees must register in advance to attend the event.

Q: What is the “tipping point” for someone who is on the fence about attending the 2020 events in Raleigh, North Carolina?

A: With a Net Promoter Score of 98, the Canopy Summit is one of the highest rated radiology conferences in the country. The venue is awesome - North Carolina’s only Forbes Five Star, AAA Five Diamond Resort, The Umstead Hotel and Spa.
