Good question.  We are 100% focused on bringing together the most relevant topics along with the most interesting speakers. In addition, we work year-round with our sponsors and speakers to guarantee a highly-curated program that is worthy of CES and our Digital Health Summit attendees.

With that said, there is no “set in stone” way we select our speakers. They come from a variety of conversations and meetings, sponsor companies, research and more research–but we are always interested in building new relationships to bring the best and brightest to the Digital Health Summit. 

Our top priority is stellar content…period. 

Absolutely! We have a form for just this purpose. Due to the number of submissions we receive, we cannot guarantee a response.

Please note: Digital Health Summit does not do a formal call for speakers or topics. We create our content internally by working closely with individuals and companies, scouring all of the latest information and using our creative noggins. 

Now. Trust us when we say this, it is NEVER too early to book for this coming January. Las Vegas will sell out and it’s important to plan ahead to 1) even get a room, and 2) get the best possible rate. 

Unfortunately we are unable to reserve any hotel rooms for exhibitors, speakers or attendees due to the intense demand in Las Vegas during CES. 

International CES has blocked rooms at favorable rates for a limited time at a variety of hotels throughout Las Vegas. Please note that it is important to book hotels early through CES’ hotel program to get the best rates as they fill up FAST!

 

Right here. We love to collaborate and help lifelong tech businesses soar. If you wish to contact us directly, please email Jill.Gilbert@digitalhealthsummit.com

The Digital Health Summit showcases health technology products such as EHRs, telehealth systems, diagnostics, mobile health applications and devices, sensor-based  and wearable technologies, care solutions for older adults, big data and predictive analytics, chronic care management, genomics, wellness and fitness devices and so much more.

 

We are strictly focused on the health & wellness space.

Be sure to choose the correct exhibitor manual (LVCC or Venetian Ballroom), as some of the providers differ by location.  Discount deadline:  December 9.

Digital Health Summit exhibits are located in the Las Vegas Convention Center in the South Hall 2.

Absolutely! We are not saying that there aren’t over 150,000 people in one location, but where will you ever find Digital Health living side-by-side with verticals such as automobiles, education, gaming, aging, environmental, filmmaking, home technologies and so much more? The exposure to business opportunities and partnerships are limitless.

It’s a very rare opportunity to have such an incredible variety of innovators, celebrities, thought leaders and movers-and-shakers under one roof. So get your brave faces on and come meet them all.

So to answer the question posed…yes, it is hands-down worth it to brave the crowds and chaos and join us this January at Digital Health 2014. 

Meet new people, engage in new conversations–don’t be shy. We have heard incredible stories of really great partnerships and deals coming out of these conversations at the Digital Health Summit.

 

We’re sad to report that there is no wifi offered throughout CES so make sure to bring your portable hotspots or data-enabled phones if you wish to stay connected.

Keep in mind that it is cold in Vegas this time of year––the weather will be near freezing at night (it’s a dry cold) and up in the mid 50-60’s during the day. Comfortable shoes and casual or business casual attire will work just fine. And when we say comfortable shoes, we mean COMFORTABLE SHOES.
