ASHE's International Summit & Exhibition on Health Facility Planning, Design & Construction -- otherwise known around the industry as ASHE PDC -- takes place this year March 13-16 in Tampa, Florida. Outside of providing a much-needed break from the Ohio winter (oh yes, we've still got winter here!), ASHE PDC has always struck me as the true "kick-off" event of any given calendar year, and 2011 is no exception. Managing Editor Jennifer Kovacs and I will both be in attendance this year, and I encourage you to stop by our booth (#319) to say hello, grab some copies of the latest issues of bothHEALTHCARE DESIGN and
Healthcare Building Ideas (your first chance to get the new issues of both, before they are even in the mail to subscribers!), exchange some ideas, and simply put some names to faces. We'll be blogging, Tweeting, and posting news stories here on our site as they break from the conference, so make sure you watch our feeds to keep up on the latest. Looking forward to a great conference and meeting many of you in person!
