April 27, 2022

WEX SPARK 2022, is coming your way on May 16-18, 2022, at the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida. Hosted by WEX’s benefits division, this 15th annual conference event brings industry experts, WEX team members, and WEX partners together to discuss how trends impacting employers, opportunities in the market, and the latest product and program innovations from WEX can fuel business growth.

The WEX benefits platform—delivered through WEX’s network of partners serving the health and employee benefits market including benefits consultants, third-party administrators, financial institutions, health plans, and public sector organizations—helps millions of consumers better manage healthcare expenses across the United States and Canada.

SPARK—one of the benefits industry’s leading events—will provide a refreshing and empowering experience ideal for learning. Sessions will offer attendees choice, variety, and expertise in technology, service, and community that will help differentiate their business.

Keynotes at this year’s SPARK event will be inspiring and motivational

This year, two motivational keynote speakers—Ken Schmidt, former communications director of Harley-Davidson, and Tiffani Bova, global customer growth and innovation evangelist at Salesforce—will provide insights into brand management, positioning, human behavior, and digital transformation. Also on the event mainstage will be WEX executives sharing WEX’s vision, strategies, and the WEX roadmap of innovation to help attendees shape their business growth plans.
