The two-and-a-half-day event will be held July 16-18, 2018 at The Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Following the Summit’s conclusion, HCAA will spend the afternoon of July 18 giving back to the local community by volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House.
“Although the bar was set quite high with record-breaking attendee and sponsor increases at last year’s TPA Summit, this year’s event is shaping up to be yet another impressive gathering of speakers and educational programing that will foster collaboration and prove invaluable to attendees as they look to evolve along with our industry,” said HCAA Chief Executive Officer Carol Berry, CSFS. “We’re also delighted to be able to give back to the local Minneapolis/St. Paul area by coming together to help the great people at the Ronald McDonald House. This will truly be another fulfilling experience both professionally and personally for everyone involved.”
