HIMSS21: Day One Highlights
Events / By Lance De Peralta / August 10, 2021
Day One (Aug 9) is officially in the books! Despite COVID, turnout was ok. Although we heard that total attendance this week will probably be less than half the normal size (usually 45,000-50,000 people).
The conference is spread out across Caesar's, Venetian, and the Sands Expo Center. The 100-degree weather in Vegas isn't so bad since it's mostly dry heat. I'll take that over 70-80 degrees with high humidity any day of the week!
Hung out last night with our good friends Chris, Ian, and Richard. Nice re-connecting with them. Met a couple new faces too!
We attended the opening reception at the Wynn (decent turnout) and ended the evening at a "speakeasy" (Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails) in the Cosmopolitan. Very cool establishment!
Exhibition opened today...will post about our experiences over the next couple days.
