If there’s a word most commonly used to describe the HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, it’s “big.” Big numbers (an estimated 45,000 attendees are expected), big value (300 sessions and 1,200 exhibitors), and big names (IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, former House Speaker John Boehner and sharks Robert Herjavec and Kevin O’Leary). That kind of big can intimidating, especially for those with a smaller focus. But it can also be a good thing, as it means a large chunk of the industry – including some of its most influential leaders – will convene in one location, making it easier to have real conversations.

To that end, we’ve created a guide to help CIOs and other leaders make the most out of HIMSS, featuring interviews with top leaders at both HIMSS and CHIME, and perspectives that focus on specific aspects of the show.
