ORLANDO, Fla., March 5th, 2020. Today, following recent reports from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), HIMSS announced it is clearly necessary to cancel the 2020 HIMSS Global Health Conference & Exhibition.
“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.”
HIMSS20 exhibitors and attendees will be contacted with further information regarding booth contracts and registrations. Please contact email@example.com for immediate booth concerns. Any further updates regarding HIMSS20 will be published on himssconference.org.
Please see the HIMSS20 Cancellation FAQ page for more information.
