HIMSS21 Brings Changemakers Together

Chicago, Illinois, UNITED STATES


CHICAGO, July 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 2021 HIMSS Global Health Conference & Exhibition has established the most viable options for convening across the global health ecosystem for education, networking and innovation while also leading the charge on a return to in-person events.

HIMSS21 is both a digital and in-person experience in Las Vegas, Nevada, from Aug. 9-13, so everyone, everywhere can join together to Be the Change. Attendees will engage with world-class speakers and customize their educational programming and specialty sessions.

This is a year of calculated flexibility, collaboration and renewed appreciation for community and personal connection, reflected in the more than 18,000 registered attendees with a healthy pace of new registrations continuing to be received.

Those who are engaging with the Global Conference will experience — in some cases, for the first time in 18 months — the latest advancements in healthcare and the solutions they need to fuel their work and personal development.

HIMSS is meeting new and exciting demands for choice and versatility, while closely following guidance from public health officials. To align with this guidance, Proof of Vaccination and masks are required for all attendees, exhibitors and HIMSS staff on the HIMSS21 Campus and in all public spaces. Please check our Health and Safety Hub for ongoing updates.

  • Socially distanced seating options will be provided in all venues, including at all education sessions and networking events.
  • Exhibit hall will include wider aisles on the floor with booths spaced apart.
