"MarketConnect Live is designed to break down the barriers of tech adoption and implementation within health organizations and connect leading companies directly with pre-qualified executives interested in commercial partnerships," said Indu Subaiya, Executive Vice President, Health 2.0, a HIMSS business unit. "We leverage a rigorous vetting process to connect buyers and sellers based on interest, market segment, growth stage and tech relevance."
"Evaluating potential healthcare solutions during a tradeshow is extremely challenging for executives who are short on time. For health IT companies, tailoring your pitch to meet the needs of a prospective client in a traditional exhibit hall environment is next to impossible," said Health 2.0 Co-Chairman Matthew Holt. "MarketConnect Live mitigates many of the disconnects and missed opportunities on the tradeshow floor, and accelerates the technology adoption journey by curating strategic connections between a solutions provider and decision maker, allowing both to perform due diligence prior to bringing all of the right executives and decision-makers together."
The MarketConnect Live Pavilion will be open on Oct. 2-3 for dedicated in-person meetings.
