HIMSS 2017: 1,200 companies showcased on the 500,000+ square feet of exhibition floor.
If you’re planning on attending the HIMSS 2017 annual conference, then you already know how challenging it can be to prioritize where to spend your time and which booths to visit in the expansive exhibit hall. If you’re part of the 40% of attendees who will be visiting for the first time, then you’re in for sensory overload: There are 1,200 companies showcased on the 500,000+ square feet of exhibition floor.
That’s why we put together this short list of must-see sessions below, and when you need a break, come find us at booth #2803, styled to look like our world-famous San Francisco coffee shops. We’ll be serving up coffees, espressos, lattes, cappuccinos, and chocolates all day. As always, we’ll also have free Practice Fusion “shwag” available.
