HEALTH 2.0 12TH ANNUAL FALL CONFERENCE | SANTA CLARA, CA | SEPT. 16-18, 2018
by GRACE MOEN - Writer for Health 2.0 covering news and trends and reflecting on the industry.
Let’s be honest, the Santa Clara Convention Center is a big, sprawling, get-your-steps-in kind of place (Producer Irena walked 43,105 steps last year. That’s 20.4 miles, which is half of what Producer Emily walked when she visited Disneyland with the kids on her post-con vacay.) It can be hard to grasp the true scale of what happens at the Health 2.0 Annual Fall Conference. This is the biggest, baddest event Health 2.0 throws every year, and we want to break it down for you. This is your VIP sneak peek at what it takes to pull off this show.
Let's start with how many fellow health tech wonks are in the room with you - 2,183 it turns out. It’s kind of like a Festival! And like a Festival, there are a lot of stages - 11 to be exact - that in total feature 125 live performances. Er, technology demonstrations. (Health 2.0 has actually hosted many live performances. See below for a rundown) Each technology demo is carefully constrained by our famous 3.5 minute model, so when you do the math, Health 2.0 attendees get access to a total of 7.3 hours of innovative technologies while they’re at the conference.
Below are the numbers that capture the pace, energy, and scale of the Health 2.0 Annual Fall Conference...
