Learning and Engagement
HealthAchieve is a two-day event packed with close to 50 concurrent educational sessions. Kicking off with the official opening on Monday morning and closing on Tuesday afternoon, you'll have plenty of sessions to choose from in between. We recommend you take a look at the Program Schedule and decide which sessions you'd like to attend while at the event to make the most of your time.
Multiple sessions take place at the same time so you'll need to review the session details to determine which sessions are of most interest to you. You can help plan your time by adding each session you are interesting in attending to your calendar with the "add to calendar" function on the session details page.
HealthAchieve wouldn't be HealthAchieve without its award-winning exhibit floor. Make sure you schedule time to visit the exhibit floor on Level 800 (Hours are Monday, November 6 from 9:00am – 5:00pm and Tuesday, November 7 from 9:00am to 3:30pm)

Food and Beverage
Lunch will be served each day on the Exhibit Floor (Monday, November 6 from 11:30am and 1:30pm and Tuesday, November 7 from 11:30am – 1:00pm). If your registration does not include a lunch ticket, you may purchase one onsite at the registration desk for $20.00 + HST.
