One of the hallmarks of the Health IT Marketing and PR Conference (HITMC) has been the opportunity to meet hundreds of your marketing and PR peers. A couple years ago we started incorporating some casual meetups before the conference. Most people were in town already, so it made sense for us to get together in a casual environment so we could meet and become friends before the full conference agenda began. It’s hard to meet people during regular sessions, so these casual meetups were great.
HITMC 2017 will take this to a new level with 2 casual pre-conference meetups and 1 post-conference meetup as well. These meetups have no agenda and are just a time for the community to come together, meet, greet, learn, commiserate, share, and have a little fun.
Please be sure and register to attend these pre and post-conference meetups so we know how many plan to attend and so your name is on the list. There’s no cost to sign up if you’re attending the conference already.
For those attending the conference, here’s a look at the details for the meetups we have planned:
Wednesday Afternoon Meetup – 4/5/2017 from 3-5 PM at Foxtail Pool at SLS
Join us poolside for a casual afternoon meetup at the Foxtail Pool inside SLS Las Vegas. We’ll let security know we’re the “HITMC” group and we’ll likely grab a cabana or two. Food and drinks are on your own at this meetup, but they will be available for purchase. We did this two years ago and it was a great way to soak up some sun, meet people, and a few people dipped their toes in the pool or went for a swim. Bring your swimsuit or not and join us poolside. Register Now!
Note: If weather is an issue, we’ll move this to another location inside SLS Las Vegas. Also, if you’re not staying at the conference hotel, SLS Las Vegas, you may need someone who is staying there to get you into the pool area.
Wednesday Evening Meetup – 4/5/2017 from 7-9 – HITMC Karaoke Night at Ellis Island Casino
By popular demand, the HITMC community will be heading to a local Karaoke spot to enjoy an open bar and some sweet tunes (Trust me when I tell you that there are some great singers in the community…and maybe a few that aren’t) for our Wednesday evening meetup. We’ll be meeting as a group at 7 PM in front of the SLS Las Vegas Registration/Concierge area. Then, we’ll head over as a group to the Ellis Island Casino for Karaoke and drinks from 7:30-9:00 PM. Register Now!
If you miss the group or are traveling from somewhere other than the conference hotel, you can join us directly at the Ellis Island Casino (4178 Koval Ln, Las Vegas, NV 89109) at 7:30. We’ll provide transportation back to the SLS Las Vegas at 9 PM. However, if you haven’t had enough, the venue will open to the public at 9 PM for those who want to stay later for more karaoke. It’s a short Uber/Lyft ride back if you decide to stay later.
Friday Evening Meetup – 4/7/17 at 10:00 PM – HITMC Club Night
For those night owls that want a real Vegas nightlife experience before heading home, we’re going to head to one of the great Las Vegas nightclubs to dance the night away and enjoy the opulence that is Las Vegas. We’ll meet in front of the Registration/Concierge area at SLS Las Vegas and then share Uber/Lyft‘s over to the club as a group. We’ll get you access to the club and likely purchase a table as a home base for the community, but drinks at the club will be on your own. Be sure to register now if you plan to attend since you’ll need your name on the list to get into the club.
