Under One Tent
Share Moving Media, publisher of Repertoire, kicked off its first regional receptions for distributor reps this summer. The receptions bring together reps from different companies for an evening of education and networking.
The first reception, held in Dallas, attracted about 30 reps from the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, metroplex. At the event, which was sponsored by Vizient, Nate Mickish, vice president of sourcing, supply chain management, Texas Health Resources, shared his IDN’s approach to alternate-site purchasing. A second reception was scheduled for mid-August in Orange County, California.
“Our goal with these mixers is to bring a sense of community back to our industry, which has become so electronic-driven,” says Scott Adams, publisher of Repertoire. “By bringing the stakeholders in distribution together in a neutral setting, we can learn from one another and provide better services and better healthcare at the local level.”
