HIMSS 2020, The Global Health Conference and Expo has been Canceled.
We have just been advised moments ago that the giant HIMSS Event scheduled to run next week in Orlando Florida has officially been canceled. A note on their website said “Following recent reports from the WHO and the CDC, it is clearly necessary to cancel #HIMSS20”.
“We recognize all the hard work that so many have put into preparing for their presentations and panels that accompany every HIMSS conference,” said Hal Wolf, president and CEO of HIMSS. “Based on evaluation of evolving circumstances and coordination with an external advisory panel of medical professionals to support evidence-based decision making, it is clear that it would be an unacceptable risk to bring so many thousands of people together in Orlando next week.”
This is the first time that HIMSS has been canceled in its 58 year history. HIMSS attracts nearly 60,000 attendees from all over the world to this event.
If your business will be impacted by this cancellation please call us. We may be able to help you. Rich Berliner, CEO, 973 244 5868 x100
