HIMSS18 Priority Points Dashboard is Live
Exhibitor Priority Points are received throughout the year by completing tasks by a certain due date. Every time you complete your task you are awarded exhibitor priority points. These points accumulate over the year and when it comes time for the conference you are given a date/time to come and select your booth space for the following year’s conference. The more points you have the better date/time you will receive and have a greater chance of a great booth location on the show floor.
