Collaborator Showcase Information

OHDSI’s achievements over the last decade would not be possible if not for the hard work of our community members around the world. Our annual Collaborator Showcase provides our collaborators the opportunity to share their tremendous work. Last year, we had a record number of both submissions and presentations for the Collaborator Showcase, and we are hoping to exceed those totals in 2023.

This year, OHDSI is holding a small sleeping room block for the nights of Thursday, Oct. 19 and Friday, Oct. 20 with a special room rate of $169 plus taxes. To help us in the planning process, we ask that you do not cancel your hotel room ordered through the OHDSI Room Block. If you must cancel, please let us know prior to Thursday, Sept. 13, so that we can offer the room to others who may need one. Once the room block is full, or if specific nights are sold out, you may make additional room reservations on the hotel’s website or by calling the hotel phone number above. 

Please note that OHDSI is not holding any sleeping rooms on Saturday, Oct. 21 (although there may show some availability in the block). Please call the hotel phone number or make this reservation online should you plan to stay Saturday night. Please note that all sleeping rooms in the OHDSI room block are on a first-come, first-served basis; therefore, we recommend making your hotel guest-room accommodation as soon as possible to ensure the discounted room rate.

Note: If you have multiple reservations at the Hilton, as long as you book the same room type, you will be able to stay in one room the entire time; just stop by the front desk and they will update your keys and credit card info.

We encourage you to book your hotel room Oct. 19 and Oct. 20 through the OHDSI room block below. Should you put in other dates, the block may show unavailable OR the rates may change. When the room block gets full, you may continue to try until Sept. 26 as rooms may cancel:
