Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I come?
The Visis: 2020 EPSi Summit is the only place to discover the latest innovations from EPSi and hear some of the biggest thought leaders in the industry. We gather luminaries who will inspire you to lead organizational transformation, drive technical innovation, and champion the humanity behind your mission. Visis is where med tech meets finance. And where you meet your peers and leaders from around the country.
You will also be able to earn up to 12 CPE credits for attending.
Where is it?
The Visis: 2020 EPSi Summit is at the beautiful JW Marriott at 2nd Street and Congress Avenue in the heart of downtown Austin, Texas: The Live Music Capital of the World. Steps away from world-famous music venues, Lady Bird Lake, and the gorgeous 10-mile-long Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike trail that encircles the lake, the JW Marriott is one of the top-rated event hotels in the country. We have secured a specially-priced room block of $339 (plus tax and incidentals) for Visis attendees. This room block has a limited number of rooms and is subject to selling out. You will be able to make your reservations after you have registered for Visis.
How do I get there?
Austin Bergstrom International Airport is approximately 25 minutes by car from the J.W. Marriott, at the corner of 2nd Street and Congress Avenue. There are ample options for ground transportation from the airport to the hotel and around the city. Ridesharing services such as Lyft, Uber, and the Austin-based nonprofit RideAustin are very popular, affordable, and convenient options.
Parking at the hotel is limited to valet and downtown Austin is very congested. We suggest you do not rent a vehicle.

Guests are responsible for the cost of their room, room service, parking, incidentals, outside activities, and ground transportation.
What else can I do while I'm there?
Austin is a very active city, with many choices available to visitors. World-class restaurants, outdoor activities galore, and, of course, many live music venues all over the city.
You asked, and we listened. Tuesday afternoon you will have free time set aside for you to "create your own adventure," Austin-style. Whether it's a bike ride around the legendary Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trail; a visit to the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum; beverages, nachos and a movie at the famed Alamo Drafthouse; or even a dip in the spring-fed Barton Springs Pool-- you're sure to find something fun and relaxing to enjoy.
How do I get CPE credits?
What should I wear?
Business casual for the summit sessions; feel free to dress up more creatively for evening events. Bring swimwear if you’d like to take advantage of the J.W. Marriott's luxurious rooftop swimming pool or enjoy a dip in Barton Springs Pool. Austin weather can be variable in October. Please check the weather forecast before packing.
What if I want to stay additional nights?
Visis attendees may book special discount rates for three nights before and after Visis (Thursday through Saturday, October 15-16-17, and Wednesday through Friday, October 21-22-23), pending availability. Contact the hotel directly if you are interested in room nights prior to Sunday, October 18, 2020 or after Wednesday, October 21, 2020. Austin is busy and popular in October, so make your plans early if you wish to stay before or after the Visis summit. The room block with the negotiated discount rate may sell out, so register and make your reservations early.
