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

    This is a critical event to get your project team in sync with newly emerging facility features, types of space, and building systems that are at the forefront of leading-edge STEM facilities and programs.

    Attend this conference to benchmark your plans for renovations, expansions, and new construction for teaching and research facilities against what leading peer institutions are doing. Here you’ll get details on facility features that accommodate growth, improve teaching and research outcomes, support student entrepreneurship, improve recruitment, increase efficiency of resources (space, budgets, and core technology), increase scalability and flexibility, integrate science and engineering disciplines, boost collaboration, connectivity and interaction, and reduce capital and operating costs.

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

    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.

  • October 2-3
    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, equipment solutions, and operating models that are being put in place for regulatory and certification compliance, and to lower operating and labor costs, improve program and facility flexibility, and raise space utilization. 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.

  • October 5-6
    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, shared resources, open and collaborative environments, flexibility, collocated programs, translational research and genomics-driven healthcare, and institutional partnerships.

  • November 13-14
    The Vinoy Renaissance Resort
    St. Petersburg, FL

    Big changes in the planning, allocation, management, technology, and utilization of space are creating healthier workplaces, more productive work cultures, 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 metrics, health and well-being standards, space management tools and software, facility planning and interior design concepts, cost models, and the results of new space strategy initiatives, and how these successful initiatives are being executed.

  • November 16-17
    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.
