Statements from participating companies:

The matchmaking platform gave me the opportunity to showcase and highlight my business collaboration proposals.
I did not have a booth at the event, so this was a great alternative to make myself visible at e-Health 2018 week.
I managed 6 meetings with companies from 4 countries in one day ... visiting them on-site would take weeks.
Some company profiles were really interesting ... without this platform I wouldn't have noticed these companies.

How many health conferences have you attended? How many of them offer genuine health and wellness-related activities? Not many! The HELSINKI MORNING RUN consists of a 5km light run around the beautiful Helsinki - the perfect start to anyone's day, especially just before a conference. HIMSS brings together like-minded individuals who share a passion for digital health and running alike. Start your day right and sign up to this complimentary run today! It is open for all levels of running - fast and slow! To top it all off, you’ll be running alongside one of the most inspiring individuals who has broken down barriers on mental health discussions.

Ben Dave, a 31-year-old freelance events producer from Harrogate, came up with the ‘Running Yorkshire’ challenge in August 2018. He ran a 495-mile lap of Yorkshire’s boundaries in 18 days and raised over £25,000 for a mental health charity: Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), a charity leading a movement against male suicide, which is the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. Ben will be joining us in Helsinki and leading our HELSINKI MORNING RUN. Join us for some exercise while you get the opportunity to meet Ben and learn about his story. Ben has inspired many people to open up about their mental health, and says "exercise is a massive part of it. Just going out for 20 minutes gives you a sense of control over your life".
