By now youíve had time to look at our 2013 conference program online and soon our conference brochure will be hitting your desk, if it hasnít already.†The lineup of educational sessions and speakers is top notch. The networking opportunities are unique and plentiful.†And youíll have access to over 200 exhibitors on the exhibition floor.
If you have already registered and are planning to be in Chicago Ė thank you and we look forward to seeing you!†If you are planning to come but havenít yet registered, donít forget that the early bird pricing expires on July 26th.†What about those of you who havenít attended before or donít know why you should choose the Symposium over other events in the industry?†Why should you choose the Symposium and what makes us different?
The Symposium is the only industry event that has virtually every stakeholder category represented on our advisory board.†This very accomplished group possesses diverse and varied strengths and interests. They are architects, engineers, interior designers, contractors, researchers and healthcare administrators representing major design firms, small independent consultants, major manufacturers, large health systems and small hospitals.†And they have a real voice in the shaping of the event every year from the education we spotlight to the charity we support and the types of exhibitors we should be featuring.
Our education program is put together without any one organization dictating the topics or subjects we cover but rather we embrace all schools of thought.†The most important factor though is to have as many sessions as possible representing every facility stakeholder. Because what we have overwhelmingly heard from our attendees is that they all want to learn how the other stakeholders work and what is important to them.†
There is an energy that surrounds the Symposium and leaves those in attendance inspired and rejuvenated to face the challenges of our industry.†
I invite you to come to Chicago this fall and see what the Symposium is all about.†As a subscriber to the Leaflet you can get a 20% discount if you register by July 3rd and use VIP code leaflet20.
I hope to see you this October and please be sure to introduce yourself when you are at Navy Pier!
