Interoperability Showcase Education Theater Guidelines

Speaking at the HIMSS Interoperability is a premier level sponsorship benefit. We thank you for your participation and support of this collaborative project. We look forward to learning from you and sharing your thought leadership with the attendees of HIMSS18.

The Interoperability Showcase Education Theater is a premier location on the exhibit floor with over 100 seats. Your session can be up to (1) hour long. We suggest using half of this time for content and using the remaining half for networking and discussion. We welcome a variety of formats such as presentations as well as panels and Q&A.. Please contact Bronwen Huron if you have any questions or ideas. We are here to support your successful presentation!


The Interoperability Showcase utilizes content based marketing. All presentations in the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase must be focused on interoperability and the value of your organization. It cannot be a sales pitch or a demo of a product. If you have questions please reach out to Bronwen.
