Nearly 14,000 to attend annual Cerner Health Conference, Oct. 11-14
Cerner, a global leader in healthcare technology, will host nearly 14,000 health care industry leaders, practitioners and Cerner associates for its annual Cerner Health Conference (CHC), Oct. 11-14, in Kansas City. Clients, partners and associates will gather to collaborate with peers, share best practices and gain hands-on experience with Cerner’s innovative health care solutions and services.
Due to the continued growth of CHC, conference events will be hosted in more than one facility for the first time. In addition to the Kansas City Convention Center, Cerner will host CHC sessions, speakers and workshops at Sprint Center, the Crowne Plaza and Marriott hotels. CHC’s annual networking event will again take place at the Power and Light District.
The event will be Kansas City’s third-largest convention in 2015. The Kansas City Convention and Visitors Association estimates that CHC will generate more than $14 million for the Kansas City economy, based on spending by the company and attendees, more than half of whom travel from outside the area.
