HIMSS17 TOOK PLACE IN ORLANDO, FL
February 19-23, 2017
ORLANDO (February 19, 2017) - The HIMSS17 Exhibition floor features IT product and service innovations to meet the needs of healthcare providers at any level of health IT implementation. From disruptive technologies to the latest IT solutions, the exhibition floor offers attendees valuable time to engage in one-on-one discussions with representatives of exhibiting companies.
“Each year, we look at innovative and inspiring ways to design the exhibition floor so that our exhibitors can best position their booth and meet with healthcare providers, IT professionals and others who walk the 1.2 million square feet of the floor looking for solutions they need,” said Elli Riley, senior director, exhibition, HIMSS North America. “We appreciate the efforts of our anchor exhibitors whose booths literally anchor the corners of the exhibition floor.”
Riley explained that the diversity of IT solutions and products on the exhibition floor brings attendees back each year to see not only what’s new, but also, how they can best use the technology their hospital or medical practice has in place. “We know that navigating the exhibition floor takes time and an organized approach. But, we’ve simplified the search using the online tools available in the mobile app, HIMSS17 website and with HIMSS365.”
