HITMC 2019 Meetups and Social Events

One of the trademarks of the Health IT Marketing and PR Conference (HITMC) has been the opportunity to connect with hundreds of your marketing and PR peers. There’s no better place to get to know your peers than at a social meetup.  What started as casual social meetups during and before the conference have become a formal part of our planning and something that makes the HITMC community unique.  We pride ourselves on creating a conference experience where you learn a lot and have fun.


HITMC 2019 will continue this tradition with a dinner meetup, 2 big social events, and a fun Boston activity. 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.


For those attending the conference, here’s a look at the details for the meetups we have planned:


Tuesday Evening Dinner – 4/16/2019 meet at 6 PM in the Renaissance Boston Waterfont Lobby

A number of us will be in Boston Tuesday evening before sessions begin on Wednesday. A member of the community suggested we get together for dinner on Tuesday. We thought that would be a fantastic idea. So if you’re in Boston early, we’ll be meeting in the conference hotel lobby at 6 PM and heading to for a casual dinner as a group.  Our organizers, Colin wants seafood and John wants Italian, so it’s quite possible we’ll divide into multiple groups based on food interests.


Wednesday Evening Meetup – 4/17/2019 from 7-9:00 PM at Lucky’s Lounge (map)

Join us for our Wednesday evening casual meetup at Lucky’s Lounge sponsored by Matter Health. Come and meet your fellow attendees and enjoy a cold beverage, light appetizers, and a great kickoff to HITMC19. We’ll be meeting at 6:45 PM in the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Lobby. Then, we’ll walk over as a group to Lucky’s Lounge (~11 min walk) for drinks from about 7:00-9:00 PM. If you miss the group or are traveling from somewhere other than the conference hotel, you can join us directly at Lucky’s Lounge (355 Congress St, Boston, MA 02210) at 7:00 PM.  Lucky’s Lounge has live music starting at 9 PM for those who want to stay later.


Thursday Evening Social – 4/18/2019 from 7-9:00 PM at Rosa Mexicano (map)

Join us for our Thursday Evening Social sponsored by SmartBrief.  We’ve booked a great space at Rosa Mexicano for our big Thursday Evening social. Join us for an evening of networking and connecting with other attendees. This social will also include drinks and light appetizers.


You can meet us at Rosa Mexicano directly, or we’ll be meeting at 6:50 PM in the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Lobby.  Then, we’ll walk over as a group to Rosa Mexicano (~6 min walk). If you miss the group or are traveling from somewhere other than the conference hotel, you can join us directly at Rosa Mexicano (155 Seaport Blvd, Boston, MA 02210) at 7:00.


Fun Boston Activity – 4/19/2019 from 3-5:00 PM

For those who have a late flight on Friday or are flying out on Saturday, join the HITMC community for this informal tour of Boston.  We’ve invited some locals to join us as we split up into ad hoc groups and visit some of Boston’s historic sites like the Freedom Trail, Cheers, Boston Commons, Quincy Market, and many more.  There’s nothing better than wandering around a city like Boston with those in the HITMC community.  Come and have some fun, see some new sites, and make some new friends.


Don’t be surprised if the HITMC community heads to a local karaoke spot, organizes unofficial dinner groups, schedules morning runs, and other impromptu get-togethers. Keep an eye on the #HITMC hashtag on Twitter to learn about these spur of the moment events.
