Commercial furniture manufacturer Carolina is continuing its strong commitment to the Healthcare Design Expo & Conference (HCD), once again signing on as Presenting Sponsor for the show, scheduled for Nov 2-5, 2019, in New Orleans. HCD Expo is produced by Emerald Expositions, parent company of Healthcare Design magazine.

“While Carolina, and parent company OFS, officially began our presenting sponsorship with last year’s Healthcare Design Expo & Conference, we have been strong supporters of HCD since its early beginnings,” said Stan Gray, director of Healthcare, Carolina. “HCD is the premier event for the healthcare interiors industry. We are hopeful that our commitment to investing in continuing education and design events such as HCD helps to advance the impact that design has on clinical outcomes and healthcare operations.”

As Presenting Sponsor, Carolina will provide considerable financial support for industry events during the show while benefiting from an ideal platform for promoting its rebranding efforts.

“We are excited to have Carolina and OFS Brands return as the 2019 HCD Presenting Sponsor,” says Vice president and Group Show Director Kevin Gaffney. “Their expertise has clearly been demonstrated and attendees at this year’s show in New Orleans will be able to see this firsthand.”

“With this significant investment, it’s obvious that Carolina sees the value in this show,” adds Mark Lind, associate show director, Healthcare, Emerald Expositions. “Carolina is interested in the growth of this industry, and their continued commitment reflects that optimism.”

Carolina’s Gray adds: “We are building on momentum generated from recent product innovations and continuing our legacy of bringing meaningful products to the healthcare interiors industry. Coming back for the second year in a row as Presenting Sponsor is the perfect opportunity to bring attention to our brand. For Carolina, the HCD Expo & Conference has always been the premier show to connect with top thought leaders in the healthcare interiors industry.”
