2020 ADSO Summit Agenda with New Tracks and Hotel Information

register for the 2020 ADSO Summit

The Association of Dental Support Organizations (ADSO) will be holding its annual Summit at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center right outside Washington DC in National Harbor, Maryland. This is consistently the gold standard event for the DSO industry. Register now.

The ADSO annual Summit is a commitment to the development of member companies and it provides them a forum for learning and collaboration. ADSO’s Summit is the premier meeting for educational and networking opportunities specifically centered on the DSO business model. Summit attendance has grown every year since the meeting’s inception as C-suite executives from across the US and abroad come together to take advantage of the shared wisdom our members and industry leaders have to offer.

In 2020, for the first time ever, the ADSO will be introducing a Partnering For Growth track with content specifically designed for emerging DSOs and group practices.  They will also be introducing a variety of other tracks (see below) to help guide the attendees in making the most of their time by giving them the ability to go straight to the content most pertinent to them.
