The Joe Public Retreat

Save the Date: February 12-14, 2020 in San Diego, CA

The Best Place to Connect With Health System Marketers

Leaders in our industry have loudly proclaimed the need for deep, meaningful change in the way hospitals and health systems market themselves to their audiences. 

Now, we’ve caught up to — and in some cases surpassed — other industries when it comes to marketing savvy. That’s what Joe Public Retreat is all about. For this two day event, senior-level marketers will gather with peers, hear best practices from industry leaders, and ultimately walk away being on the leading edge of healthcare marketing innovation.

Much more than a conference, Joe Public Retreat provides a unique atmosphere and small group setting that encourages attendees to not only hear from industry leaders, but engage them in conversation about specific ideas and challenges. Expert-led panels, executive keynotes, and roundtable discussion also round up the agenda and focus on the transformation of healthcare marketing.

We provide your meals and excellent refreshments to complement the entire experience. We hope you will join us for a robust discussion in a beautiful venue. If you have other questions, please email us  at and someone from our team will contact you immediately.

“The Joe Public Retreat was insightful and energizing — we attended as a team to better understand our opportunities to improve. The retreat provided an engaging environment to share experiences, network with peers from across the country, learn from experts, and jot down some practical takeaways.”
Matt Gove, Chief Consumer Officer — Piedmont Healthcare

The Venue

Past Joe Public Retreat attendees rave about the venue selection and this year will be no different. We will be hosting at Hotel Bennett, the South's grandest new luxury hotel in Charleston, South Carolina. Situated in the heart of downtown, at 404 King Street, Hotel Bennett preserves the grace and welcoming spirit of the historic city of Charleston, with a touch of modern nuance.

If you're ready to book a room today, we've reserved a room block for Hotel Bennett's stylish guest rooms and suites:
