Who ever said, ‘You can’t go home again,’ wrote a great novel, but he never heard of the longest-running middle-market healthcare investment conferences.  This year, iiBIG is proud to be going-home-again to when and where it all began: back in 2007, in the great city of Nashville.  Our 12th annual ‘Investment and M&A Opportunities in HEALTHCARE’ will be held September 19-20th (the month in which it was firsts held) at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel (the first venue).

Labor Day is in the rear-view mirror; and the kids are back to school.  Summer is over and the year of business growth will have just begun. If you are a healthcare entrepreneur, investor or deal-making consultancy, this is a great place to saddle-up, and get to work.


The faculty for this year’s conference will feature an executive faculty of 40+ healthcare investment thought-leaders whowill participate in panel and round table sessions. Each conference session will be led by one (1) Moderator, and up to four (4) panelists with specific expertise in each session topic. 

Each session is presented in a roundtable format, to encourage lively and informal interaction between panelists and audience members.  What will be covered?:
