  • New facility plans for project-based education, research, collaboration, and entrepreneurship
    April 24-25, 2017
    Hilton San Diego Mission Bay Resort
    San Diego, CA

    ** Early registration discount ends Friday, March 24th **

    STEM facility designs are undergoing a major transformation -- old planning models are being abandoned for an entirely new set of spaces, facility features, technologies, and building systems that are now absolutely essential for up-to-date STEM programs. This is a critical event to get your project team in sync.

  • The new plans, metrics, and models for labs, offices, cores, and support space
    April 27-28, 2017
    Hilton San Diego Mission Bay Resort
    San Diego, CA

    ** Early registration discount ends Friday, March 24th **

    A major research workspace paradigm shift is underway. The success of your upcoming capital project initiatives for research facilities and labs will depend on your group making the right decisions about these major planning issues being examined at this conference: Open, shared work environments; space allocation and utilization metrics; wet-damp-dry lab types; offices and office plans; support space; shared resources; core research facilities; flexibility; collaboration and entrepreneurship; and advanced mechanical systems and controls.

  • Flexibility - Upgrades - Affordability - Safety/Security - Space Utilization - Efficient Systems
    October 2-3, 2017
    Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel
    Boston

    Tradeline’s 29th annual animal research and biocontainment facilities conference is THE place to get details on newly emerging space metrics and standards, facility design features, emerging digital and equipment technology solutions, and operating models that are being put in place for regulatory and certification compliance (BMBL 5th Edition, NIH DRM 2016, AAALAC, ILAR Guide, CCAC, etc.), and to raise space utilization, lower operating and labor costs, increase facility flexibility, and improve quality of research. Here you’ll see leading-edge examples of, and get the decision-making rationales for, the latest renovation, modernization, and upgrade initiatives that anticipate recurring directional shifts in research programs, species, regulatory requirements, safety, security, and financial performance.

  • New Strategies and Plans - Space Utilization and Management - Renewal/Modernization - New Work Environments
    October 5-6, 2017
    Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel
    Boston

    Attend this conference to get the latest plans and initiatives for facility modernization, expansions, and new construction that are responding to new demands for program growth and the major directional shifts in medical and health sciences education, training, and research. Here you’ll get the details on the latest facility solutions for space planning and space management, new teaching pedagogies, medical simulation, shared resources, open and collaborative environments, flexibility, genomics-driven research, precision health, and institutional partnerships.

  • New Models and Metrics - Workplace Experience - Utilization - Strategic Plans - Financial Impacts
    November 13-14, 2017
    The Vinoy Renaissance Resort
    St. Petersburg, FL

    Big changes in the planning, allocation, management, and utilization of space are reducing footprint and occupancy costs, and producing healthier workplaces, superior human performance, and an improved employee workplace experience -- and these changes are delivering big gains in organizational and financial performance of academic institutions, corporations, and government agencies. At this conference you’ll learn the new space utilization metrics, analytical techniques, facility planning and interior design concepts, space allocation processes and solutions, integrated workplace management systems (IWMS) and software, cost models, and the results of new space strategy initiatives, and how these successful initiatives are being executed.

  • Capital Projects - Teaching and Research - Program Growth - Collaborative Cultures - Entrepreneurship
    November 16-17, 2017
    The Vinoy Renaissance Resort
    St. Petersburg, FL

    Attend this conference to benchmark your plans for modernization, repurposing, expansion and new construction initiatives against what leading peer institutions are putting in place to successfully grow STEM teaching and research programs in multi-use buildings. Here, you’ll get details on robust student and faculty recruitment features, shared resource strategies, new lab/support space/office solutions, project- and problem-based education facility strategies, entrepreneurship space, and lower capital and operating costs.
