The Imaging Conference and Expo (ICE) 2017 is expected to be the biggest one yet as the conference celebrates its fourth year (counting the inaugural MD Imaging Expo in 2014).

ICE 2017 will feature industry-leading speakers covering the hottest topics in imaging compliance, IT, management and equipment service. It also continues to be a top-notch event for networking and making connections within the diagnostic imaging service industry, especially with the very popular reverse expo.

ICE 2017 has been approved by the ASRT for 26 Category A continuing education credits. Adding to the conference’s reputation for world-class educational opportunities is a keynote address by Andrea D. Browne, Ph.D., DABR, Diagnostic Medical Physicist Department of Engineering, The Joint Commission. Dual “Super Sessions” will address the changing model of health care and five keys for the imaging service engineer. The ICE 2017 exhibit hall will once again feature the latest technology, products and service offerings from the who’s who of imaging industry leaders.

“Excellent atmosphere, professional instruction, and it was a reflection of the level of quality that goes into making an imaging department.” Chris Bryant, CBET

Of course, no MD Publishing conference would be complete without its signature brand of networking events and ICE 2017 is no exception with a Welcome Reception on the first day of the conference and a a Grand Finale on the last day of the conference. These two events will provide a more casual and relaxed atmosphere for attendees, educators and exhibitors to share ideas and discuss the latest trends and issues within the industry.

Registration is available free of charge for hospital employees via a VIP discount available by reaching out to an exhibitor or MD Publishing. A limited number of booths and sponsorships are available. Company leadership should not hesitate to inquire about a booth or a sponsorship before they are sold out.

The first-ever MD Imaging Expo in 2014 exceeded expectations with rave reviews from industry veterans and a strong showing from throughout the United States. More than 200 attendees registered for the event hosted by the same people behind the popular MD Expo. It featured 46 booths and sold out more than a month before the conference. Hundreds of attendees benefitted from educational opportunities with a variety of ASRT-certified classes.

MD Publishing President and founder John Krieg was thrilled by the success of the inaugural Imaging Expo.

“The show was in response to a demand expressed to us from industry leaders,” Krieg explained at the time. “We are excited to be able to host an event for a dedicated and loyal group of imaging service engineers and administrators. There is a huge void in the industry for an event and our early success is a great sign of good things to come.”

The conference returned in 2015 as the Imaging Conference and Expo (ICE) and continues to be a success. The conference meets a need for a community that supports the imaging service professionals and led to the launch of the ICE website (imagingigloo.com) followed by the ICE magazine you are holding in your hands.
