The New England Conference keeps growing, and that’s a great thing!

Each year we evaluate the geographic needs and preferences of our conference attendees as well as our exhibitors, and for the past four years we have had such an amazing response, that we have sold out the guest rooms at our host venues. What can we say? The word is out, and for hundreds of home care and hospice colleagues from all around New England, this is the conference to attend!

2019 NEHCC a Great Success!

Nearly 300 registrants and over 75 vendors (over 450 total attendees!) made last week’s New England Home Care & Hospice Conference and Trade Show one of the biggest and best ever! The Sea Crest Hotel in Falmouth, MA hosted two pre-conference intensives, four keynotes, and 24 break-out sessions over three days. Attendees left happy and with their brains full of new and innovative ideas to bring back to their agencies. The NEHCC committee is thankful to all those that attended and look forward to seeing everyone back next year.

Be sure to save the date for the 10th Annual Conference, scheduled for May 13-15, 2020 at the Gurney’s Newport Resort in beautiful Newport, RI!

Additional Hotels Added for NEHCC!

Good news! This really is a GREAT conference, and you don’t have to take my word for it!

It’s SO great that we have filled the Sea Crest hotel on Wednesday & Thursday night. No worries though, if you haven’t made room reservations yet. We have partnered with a few other great lodging locations nearby to offer you the best prices in the area. Check out the HOTEL tab for the most up to date list:

Join us at the conference by day, and you be you by night. Hey, look at it this way staying off campus might save you a few dollars or you could earn some reward points at the hotel of your choosing. Getting out an about and using offsite location can be sort of a bonus retreat, too. What a great opportunity for your team to get a couple of rooms together at a sister property. It’s the retreat you’ve never had! Let’s be honest, there really isn’t a down side to staying on the Cape in June. I mean YOU’RE ON THE CAPE!
