Come join us at the 2011 SVU Annual Conference, held in conjunction with the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) at the 2011 Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM). The SVU Annual Conference and the VAM brings vascular technologists/sonographers, vascular physicians, and vascular lab directors to one exhibit hall to experience new technologies, learn the latest scientific research, and network with other vascular ultrasound professionals.

Happy Memorial Day folks!
Just a brief post about McCormick Place, which is where the 2011 SVU Conference will be at. Built in 1958, McCormick Place is the nation's largest convention center with a total of 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space.
McCormick Place consists of several buildings, so I just wanted to clarify exactly where the conference will be.

The conference will be at Lakeside Center. Lakeside Center is easy to identify in-person because it's next to Lake Michigan and it's the only building at McCormick Place that is painted black.
The Hyatt Regency McCormick Place is the most convenient accommodation for the conference because of its proximity and the fact that it's connected to the Lakeside Center via a skybridge.

Thanks folks and have a happy Memorial Day.
