Innovation Zone

The Innovation Zone at the Connected Health Conference is a curated area of the exhibit floor showcasing unique collaborations and initiatives in connected health, with content exclusively dedicated to thought leadership and advancing the innovation economy in connected health. The 2018 Innovation Zone offers an upgraded design to accommodate new participants, even more activities and improved flow for participant and attendee interaction. Participants in the Innovation Zone include:


  • Corporate & academic innovation centers
  • Accelerators, incubators and their portfolio companies – expanded area!
  • Industry/academic leaders hosting meetups and presentations


Participants and attendees will have the opportunity to interact with entrepreneurial healthcare providers, market-leading tech and medical device companies, pharma and biotech leaders, startups driving healthcare consumerization and organizations supporting fundamental change in the innovation economy.


Additionally, programming in the Innovation Zone will link to activities hosted by the Digital Health Collaborative, established in 2017 by Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), PULSE@MassChallenge and PCHAlliance to strengthen the national and global ecosystem for connected health.


The Innovation Zone is the entry point into the Connected Health Conference for all attendees, a focal point for the latest innovations, and integrates three primary features:

  • Interactive Gallery – dynamic vignettes within each exhibit area; all Innovation Zone participants are strongly encouraged to bring partners, highlight early/exclusive results or offer demos from their featured initiative. The Innovation Zone will have a broad format for visual consistency, but exhibitors should feel emboldened toward creativity
  • The Platform – a modern platform-style stage with projection capability, for exclusive Conference news announcements, presentations, demos, awards, and video-enhanced storytelling
  • Startup Showcase: Adjacent to the Innovation is our expanded Startup Showcase, featuring 80 up-and-coming companies
  • NEW this year: The Hot Zone, a central meeting and presentation area that will host a café, startup presentations, meet the expert confabs, topical meetups, demos and special sessions integrating participants from the Innovation Zone and Startup Showcase


Innovation Zone participants are carefully selected and the PCHAlliance team works closely with each one to ensure content addresses issues at a thought-leadership level. The Innovation Zone provides participants and visitors with an exceptional opportunity to learn and interact with leaders, peers and potential partners.



Featuring cutting-edge collaborations and initiatives from corporate and academic innovation centers, incubators, top startups, accelerators and organizations, the Innovation Zone offers a unique opportunity to tell your story, deepen engagement around key issues and enjoy singular networking opportunities.
