Executive Exchange

June 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A special ACHENTX event for those in positions at the Vice President level or higher.

As excitement continues to build, the Dallas-Fort Worth healthcare market is gearing up for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. With DFW selected to host 9 matches, which will be the equivalent of 9 SuperBowls, it is critical that our healthcare executive leaders are equipped with the knowledge and understanding regarding this impact to our industry. Join us as we hear how we got to this point, key takeaways for our industry, and what is deemed to be an economic impact that is expected to exceed $400 million in the summer of 2026. Please join us as we explore the impact this could have on our supply chain resources, emergency management systems, and beyond.

This will be our first-ever ACHENTX Executive Exchange where healthcare executives at the Vice President level and above will have a unique opportunity to come together and network with their peers.

Special guest, Monica Paul, Executive Director of the Dallas Sports Commission, will be joining us for a fireside chat, moderated by Felixia Colón, FACHE.
