Travelers through the trade show floor at HIMSS14 continue to find themselves in the city of senses that is the HIMSS conference. From flashy devices, bright lights, loud music, champagne by the glass and interesting architecture, in many ways this show reminds me of the last time the show was in Orlando. Same energy and excitement, and much the same feel from the show floor. Though it seems like little has changed from the exhibitor perspective, it’s still a nearly overwhelming experience here.
This year, more than 35,500 are here in Orlando, up from 32,500 last year.
The following are some images of the more than 1,200 vendors at the show.
Alere has one of the most visually interesting booths at the show:
For me, though, at least after day one, Siemens has the most visually stunning booth:
Stoltenberg Consulting has a fun booth:
Epic continues to not be outdone:
KLAS keeps up with meetings near the center of the show:
Not sure why, but the Kronos booth seems attractive:
The huge hi-def screen at the Vocera booth is stunning:
As you would expect, Cerner’s booth is about as big a city block:
Elsever knows how to party right:
As we head into Day 2, I look forward to seeing some of the other players hear. Had some great conversations yesterday with some known and not-so-known vendors. I think I was most impressed by the collection of start ups featured on the floor. I look forward to learning more about some of these new entrants to the health IT space.
