The Healthcare Design Conference + Expo opened its 2024 Call for Presentations for the event to be held Oct. 5-8 at Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

Devoted to how the design of built environments directly impacts the safety, operation, clinical outcomes, and financial and experiential success of healthcare facilities, both now and into the future, the HCD Conference is driven by a robust conference program developed by industry professionals. (See highlights of the 2023 event here.)

Organizers welcome presentation proposals that respond to the current needs of healthcare organizations and solutions being put into place across the healthcare planning, design, construction, and operations/facility management sectors.

The deadline to submit a presentation proposal is Monday, Feb. 5. For more information and the proposal form, visit hcdexpo.com/conference/call-for-presentations.

The Call for Presentations officially kicked off the 2024 HCD Conference show cycle, which debuts a new logo and visual branding that are aligned with those of Healthcare Design magazine.

“We’ve always been the same brand, and team, producing both the HCD Conference and HCD magazine. We’re excited to communicate the strength of our portfolio by establishing a cohesive look across media and events,” said Jennifer Kovacs Silvis, brand director for Healthcare Design.

The first step in this process is unveiling a new conference logo that integrates the existing magazine logo. Additionally, a fresh look for the event, defined by a modern, design-forward aesthetic, will continue to be developed and rolled out in coming weeks.

“This new branding builds upon the strength of Healthcare Design as the premier source for insight, information, and inspiration for healthcare design industry professionals. We’ll showcase that strength with a look that’s reflective of the high design standards of the audience we serve and leverages branding that thousands of people already know and value,” Silvis adds.

Registration for the 2024 HCD Conference + Expo will open in April 2024.
