Add in the sparkle and glimmer of Fontainebleau Miami Beach, and we have something incredibly special that we want YOU to be a part of.
Key elements of SPARK 2019 include:
Keynotes offer learning experiences that go beyond office walls and help grow industry and WEX Health solution knowledge. From the big stage come the big ideas from the big names.
Concurrent sessions offer a variety of learning styles that deliver information-packed presentations. Hosted by executives and industry and subject matter experts, concurrent sessions help build your skills and sharpen your focus. Whether through Learning Labs, group discussions, or product-specific demonstrations, you will reap the most benefits by your active participation.
Networking shows up in several ways at SPARK 2019 and is designed to help you make important and meaningful connections. Exercise your body and mind and find common ground with other attendees via our golf, yoga, or fun run activities. Inspiring stories of growth, achievement, and gratitude make the annual Partner Awards Dinner and Program a must-attend event. Activities and events from our Sponsors help you discover how to extend your offerings and possibilities. Our Partner Celebration is exactly that: a celebration of our Partner community and all we’ve accomplished together.

New Brand, New Name
Our annual event, formerly known as Partner Conference, sparks thoughts and discussions; it inspires and serves as a catalyst for action. WEX SPARK Health 2019 is the official start of SPARK, our new event brand. Our annual Partner gathering is the same event it’s always been, only better.
Intro to WEX Health Day
New to SPARK 2019 is an afternoon of sessions designed for those Partners who are new to the WEX Health family. Monday’s “Intro to WEX Health” roster of sessions will provide a great foundation for the conference and ensure that our newbies gain the base of terminology, industry info, and knowledge to successfully navigate SPARK 2019. Even conference veterans will pick up something new. Make plans to join us!
Tech 1:1 meetings offer the opportunity to meet one-on-one with our WEX Health product and technology specialists. Learn how to customize WEX Health Cloud to your clients’ specific needs, work through set-up challenges, or take a deep-dive on product functionality. Take advantage of these unique face-to-face discussions and walk away with greater confidence in your solution offerings. Pre-requisite work is required to ensure that your time is productive—stay tuned for details.
SPARK Starters invite you to be part of the conversation as we bring interested Partners together to discuss the latest opportunities and challenges facing WEX Health Partners. Part learning, part networking, these sessions will provide the format for new connections as well as an engaging and stimulating exchange of ideas.
If this is the first time you’ve joined us for our annual gathering, attend this get-acquainted mixer on Monday evening. You’ll meet other first-timers as well as people who will help make your conference experience a successful one.
Kick off SPARK 2019 Monday night by meeting and greeting friends old and new. Enjoy appetizers and refreshments as you mix and mingle.
SPARK 2019 happens because of our trusted and valued Sponsors, and we want you to get to know them better. Located in the main gathering area of the convention space, Sponsor Neighborhoods—which are more about building relationships and less about demos and presentations—provide a space for having casual conversations, sharing information, and creating greater connections.
