HIMSS announced in an exhibitor communication this morning that HIMSS21 remains on track for August 9-13 in Las Vegas. It will be a “completely reimagined hybrid event” that includes an online component.
HIMSS says registration timing is comparable with previous years, 11,000 HIMSS20 registrants can transfer their registration to HIMS21, and 10,000 hotel room dates have been reserved. It has received 700 session proposals, also comparable with past years.
Exhibitor count is at 400, about two-thirds the usual number in a comparable timeframe.
HIMSS says it will set a go/no go date for the in-person component closer to the conference date when the impact of vaccination rates, infection rates, and government health recommendations will be clearer.
HIMSS will provide its next HIMSS21 update on February 19, when the registration opening date will be announced.
HIMSS22 remains on schedule for March 2022 in Orlando.
