ICE Moves to May

New Dates Designed to Boost Attendance

ICE 2021

Mark your calendar, the conference dedicated to imaging directors, radiology administrators and imaging engineers is moving to May 11-12 in sunny Ft. Lauderdale Beach, Florida.

“MD Publishing and Imaging Conference & Expo (ICE) would like to inform everyone that we have decided to postpone the 2021 ICE Conference originally scheduled for February 11-12, 2021 with the new dates confirmed for May 11-12, 2021 at the Westin Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort,” an email from parent company MD Publishing stated.

The new ICE 2021 dates are designed to allow for increased participation from attendees and imaging vendors.

“The dates were pushed back 90 days to allow more attendees to be able to travel due to COVID-related restrictions. Imaging directors and service professional have indicated they are eager to register for ICE 2021, but cannot travel at the current time, giving them 90 more days should ease up their travel issues,” MD Publishing President John Krieg explained.

“We do not want to compromise the integrity of the event, so we felt it was best to postpone rather than hold the event without the attendance vendors would expect,” the email added.

The new dates will also allow the ICE team to best deliver a quality conference that meets everyone’s expectations.

“Everyone can expect the same stellar education, vendor time and networking with fellow imaging colleagues from all over the country, learning and sharing valuable information to grow and prosper personally and professionally,” Krieg said.

“We have chosen the earliest and most convenient dates that ensure the Westin Ft. Lauderdale can accommodate our guests in a manner that ICE patrons expect,” the email adds.

The conference will keep the same schedule, exhibit space, speakers, class times and social events. Everything will simply transfer from February to May.

Continuing education is a key element of the annual conference. ICE has been pre-approved by the ACI for up to 9 CEUs. The CRES Study Group and Prep Class has been pre-approved by the ACI for a total of 7 CEUs. (NOTE: In order for an attendee to claim the CEUs on their ACI journal, they’ll need a certificate of completion from each of the listed events that they have attended to attach to their journal.)

Whether it’s invaluable continuing education, productive networking or the exclusive exhibit hall, every attendee will have the perfect opportunity to enhance their careers and spend time with colleagues. As an added incentive, ICE conference admission is complimentary for all hospital employees, imaging center employees, members of the U.S. Armed Forces and students.


ICE offers valuable continuing education with certification from ACI. AHRA certification is pending approval. Building on the success of previous conferences, ICE offers world-class presentations and instructors.

Exhibit Hall

Don’t miss the opportunity to interact with some of the industry’s leading companies all in one exhibit hall. Representatives will be available at each booth to explain how they can help imaging professionals perform their roles and responsibilities even better when they return to work.


ICE continues to be the only conference to combine leaders in imaging management with imaging engineers, providing an exclusive and unique community of key decision makers and influential imaging professionals. ICE’s networking events serve as the perfect resource to grow and prosper, personally and professionally.


The conference’s unique atmosphere and signature events provide ideal venues for fun while also boosting one’s education, adding industry-leading professionals to one’s list of contacts and creating lifelong friendships with colleagues from throughout the nation.
