Premier Breakthroughs Meeting 2011: Recap

As a newly contracted supplier with Premier, Inc. (Contract # PP-NS-659), Certol was pleased to have the opportunity to exhibit its contracted line of intermediate level surface disinfectants, including ProSpray wipes, at Premier’s annual meeting. The Conference, called Breakthroughs, was held June 14-17, 2011 in Nashville at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and featured a tradeshow, as well as breakouts for Premier members and suppliers designed to address issues and best practices in healthcare management.

Keynote speakers included former Whitehouse Press Secretary Robert Gibbs; economist, actor and comedian Ben Stein; and former Speaker of the House of Representatives and 2011 Republican presidential candidate, Newt Gringrich. All three spoke on the complexities of the new health care law and issues related to its enactment.

The show offered Certol the opportunity to meet face to face with Premier Members and provide information on our ProSpray disinfectants. Members who stopped by the booth had a chance to chat with Certol president, Ed Cassinis and most walked away with a virus. Stuffed microbes modeled after the likes of e-coli and even MRSA were handed out at the booth with abandon as members were encouraged to trial Certol’s water based surface disinfectants and were offered a promotion encourage conversion. Overall, the Certol was deemed a success for Certol and we look forward to exhibiting at Breakthroughs next year!
