Krug Celebrates 4 Nightingale Awards After Healthcare Design Show in Phoenix
A note from our friends at Krug…
Krug made quite an impression at the Healthcare Design show and conference in Phoenix. HCD has grown to become the primary and leading Healthcare event in our industry, with an overall caliber of attendees that is unmatched by any other show we participate in: where most other shows have a more minimal level of A&D and end-user attendees, HCD is packed with specifiers and end users.
Our booth was located in one of the most prominent positions on the show floor, and the excitement and positive reactions from specifiers and other customers were palpable, and for sure will be creating a lot of new opportunities and specifications. Kudos to Lauren Banas, who led the design process for the booth.
Most exciting of all, Krug was recognized with the highly coveted Nightingale Awards – the industry’s most important recognition for Healthcare products. Krug was honored to win an unprecedented 4 awards this year, including the overall award for the best product at the show:
• Best of Competition – Ascend (our soon-to-be-introduced new powered recliner that converts to an exam table) • Innovation Award in Furniture: Clinician Support – Ascend
• Gold Award in Furniture: Clinician Support – Ascend
• Gold Award in Seating: Guest/Lounge – Faeron Metal
Many thanks to Cesar Fernandez and our Engineering teams for all their work on these exciting new products, and the other products we displayed at HCD. And a big thank you to Lauren Banas, John Rademacher and Dave Uffelmann, who led the planning and coordination of the show, and presented the products to the jury committee for the awards.
It was also good to see an increasing number of our reps attending the show – many of you are recognizing the extremely high value of the exceptional networking with specifiers and end users from your territories, and the valuable learning opportunity (to become a knowledgeable resource on healthcare furniture, space planning and design) from attending the show seminars.
It’s an exciting time for Krug, and Krug reps, as we continue to move forward on our quest to be the industry’s leading designer and manufacturer of Healthcare furniture.
