2016 EFC CXO Summit
August 2, 2016
Four Points by Sheraton Chicago O'Hare Airport
10249 West Irving Park Road
Schiller Park, IL 60176
The EFC CXO Summit is a cost-effective way to assist your organization in identifying vendors that provide products and services you need to support your business operations. The CXO Summit streamlines the purchasing process by providing you the opportunity to meet face-to-face with several qualified vendors, all in one day. You will have the opportunity to concentrate your resources into one trip, and to speak confidentially with vendors whose services and experience match your needs. You are not obligated to purchase services from the vendors; however, you must be committed to truly utilizing and valuing this process and the time of the vendors selected for participation. Each one-on-one meeting will be 30 minutes long, separated by 10 minute breaks to allow time to transition to your next meeting.
Voting members will provide EFC with a profile of their organization and information on the services they are interested in purchasing within the next 12 to18 months. Vendors will be required to complete a similar profile of their organization and the services they offer. EFC will utilize the information provided to match members with vendors. Once both parties have made the commitment to participate, EFC will provide the vendor and the member with detailed information on their respective meetings that will include a meeting schedule and a member profile for each meeting. Members are required to honor all meetings scheduled, but are not required to issue an RFP or contract to any of the participating vendors. Members should be prepared to meet with approximately five (5) prospective vendors, however, the total number of meetings may vary based on the number of participating organizations. Vendors are required to agree to confidentiality regarding any and all information shared during their meetings with members.
Hotel room reservations may be made directly with the Four Points by Sheraton by utilizing this link, Education Finance Council, or by calling the hotel central reservations at 1-847-671-6000. Please inform the reservation clerk that you are attending the Education Finance Council CXO Summit to ensure the special room rate of $129.00 per night, plus applicable tax (12%). You must make your reservation on or before July 11, 2016 to receive the special room rate. Once EFC’s room block is full, or after July 11, 2016 reservations will be accepted on a space- and rate-available basis. Please only reserve the number of rooms that you will be using – cancelling rooms on or after the cut-off date prevents other members from receiving the EFC special rate and may lead to penalties for EFC.
Registration is complimentary for EFC members who are potential purchasers of services and products. If your organization would like to participate as a vendor, please contact Barbara Reichart at (202) 955-5510 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Once EFC has finalized Member-Vendor matches, we will send each organization a personalized Summit schedule of meetings
