Testimonials

Great atmosphere. Great resources. Very informative. Awesome people. Overall, great experience! Tom Scozzari
General Manager, Hospital Laundry Services
ALM's national conferences provide networking opportunities to either secure leads or present to prospects, that ultimately lead to sales. Pamela Simonetti
Director of Marketing, G.A. Braun, Inc.
I attended my first ALM Impact conference in 2016 and was so glad I did! The educational topics were very informative and I loved being able to visit with the tabletop vendors at my leisure. I got to meet some incredible new people in our industry and see some others that I had not seen in a while. Overall, it was an excellent experience and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in sharing, learning, and networking with some great industry experts. Can’t wait for the next conference! See you there. Liz Remillong
Vice President, Crothall Healthcare
